Neglected Maintenance Can Cause Injuries

If unsafe property conditions led to your serious injury, collecting compensation may depend on swift investigation and experienced legal representation. Our law firm works to prove that the accident resulted from the property owner’s neglected maintenance.

The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, of Manassas, Virginia, represents clients in Prince William, Fairfax and surrounding counties of Northern Virginia . Through settlements and jury verdicts, we have collected compensation in a wide range of premises liability cases.

Contact us at 866-719-4394 to discuss an injury resulting from:

  • Uneven pavement or potholes (sidewalk or parking lot)
  • Broken steps or handrails
  • Broken lights/poor lighting in stairwells or hallways
  • A broken porch, fence, gate or door
  • Construction defects
  • Construction debris

Neglected Maintenance

A property owner or property management company has a “nondelegable” duty to keep the premises safe for patrons or the public. We aim to show that maintenance was neglected and that the owner was notified of the safety hazard but failed to fix it. For example, one client fell down stairs when the wooden knob atop a railing came off. The apartment building owner had been asked to repair the loose post, but did not.

The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, uses professional investigators to document the unsafe condition and identify any witnesses. We also research building codes to determine if a code violation led to the premises injury, and review maintenance records and the history of complaints or violations at that property.

Call one of our experienced personal injury lawyers at 866-719-4394 to determine if you have a solid case for neglected maintenance. We offer a free consultation, including hospital visits, and collect no attorney fees unless we secure damages.
