- Dangerous Properties Can Lead to Injuries and Lawsuits in AZ
People who own or manage property have a duty to keep that property safe for anyone who may enter onto it. This is a norm of the law that’s been in place for generations, and when someone is lawfully on the property of another and is injured because of a dangerous condition, it can lead to serious injuries and lawsuits filed with the help of experienced Phoenix premises liability lawyers. Below is a look at what property owners and managers are responsible for in general and what sort of damages could be recaptured in an AZ personal injury lawsuit filed on the basis of premises liability.
Dangerous Conditions on Property in Arizona
There are several different dangerous conditions that can exist on any property. Two examples are permanent dangerous conditions and those dangerous conditions that arise from time to time but that must be handled one way or another so that the property owner or manager can avoid legal liability. If a property is inherently dangerous, such as if it contains pot holes or other dangers, those in charge of the property must either make an attempt to repair that damage or to clearly warn those who may enter the property of its existence. In terms of temporary dangers such as flooding or slippery floors, property owners must take steps to eliminate that condition or take reasonable steps to keep the public clear of it until the situation is resolved. It doesn’t necessarily matter if the property owner knew or didn’t know about these dangerous conditions – it only matters that he or she should have known about the risks.
Lawful Entrants onto Dangerous Property in AZ
One other issue that must be resolved in an Arizona personal injury lawsuit that results from injuries sustained on dangerous property is whether the person injured was lawfully there in the first place. Different statuses are assigned to people who enter another’s property, including invitees who enter a business and licensees who enter a property for a temporary amount of time for a social visit. Property owners owe these people a duty of care that’s described above. Trespassers, however, are seen to have entered a property illegally, and while there are exceptions, those who do not enter a property lawfully are not given the same level of protection from dangerous conditions.
Overall, people are injured regularly because of dangerous conditions on other people’s property. If this includes you or someone you love, contact the Phoenix personal injury attorneys at Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
