Who Is At Fault for Inadequate Maintenance in North Carolina?
Personal injury law, and therefore liability for inadequate maintenance, varies between states and will depend on the specific facts of a case.
Generally, both individual and business owners may be liable for inadequate maintenance. In many situations, tenants may also be liable. Similarly, a condo or homeowners' association can be liable for injuries sustained in common areas, where they knew or should have known about the hazard, or they created it.
In some limited circumstances, an owner may be able to show that a third person, such as a contractor, or the plaintiff was partially or wholly responsible for the injury. A plaintiff may be partially responsible for their injury where they failed to exercise reasonable care for their own safety.
In some states, the plaintiff's status is also relevant when assessing liability. For example, many states limit the circumstances in which an owner owes a duty of care to trespassers.
