At some point in most days, most Montana residents will enter property owned by others. Whether it is the private property of an individual, a retail store or a government building, you are likely under the impression that it is safe to walk on and be present on the property. While property owners are expected to maintain safe conditions on their property, the unfortunate reality is that dangerous conditions do occur and can result in serious injuries to visitors on the property.
Injured by dangerous conditions on property
There is a wide range of dangerous conditions that could be present on property located in Montana. A slip and fall could occur due to icy entrances and sidewalks or a spill on the floor. Falls could also be the result of defective or broken steps, decks, carpeting and other dangers in walkways and corridors due to the failure to repair them.
