Poor lighting can lead to slip-and-fall accidents

When people think about slip-and-fall accidents, they often think about the issues with the flooring itself. Maybe it's a staircase with a broken tread. Maybe it's a slick spot after a spill on a tile floor. Maybe it's snow and ice on a sidewalk that no one properly cleaned up.

A simple stairway carries more danger than many people realize

You probably use the stairs every day, but do you ever think about the serious risks you face? It's worth considering, especially if you're often on property that you do not own: In stores, in public buildings, in an apartment or in a neighbor's house. You want to know what hazards could cause a serious accident.

When a property owner is responsible for a dangerous condition

Many premises liability cases revolve around a dangerous condition that causes an accident. It could be something like a wet floor that leads to a slip-and-fall accident or a broken stairway railing that causes someone to fall down the stairs.

Warning signs do not always mean you can't seek compensation

One way that businesses and homeowners try to avoid having to pay someone compensation if they get hurt on the property is by putting up warning signs. While they may argue that they do this to keep people safe -- and it may help -- the focus is often on liability. If someone gets hurt and threatens to sue, they assume they can just point to the sign and avoid payment.

Lighting still needs to be safe, even when prioritizing the view

Preserving natural beauty is always something that has been important in Arizona. For instance, nearly 20 years ago, Flagstaff became the first International Dark Sky City in the world. This was done to try to reduce light pollution so that residents could observe an unobstructed view of the night sky, without the light pollution so common in other cities.
