What is an unsafe condition of property?
We are often asked what the standard is that property owners are held to in Wyoming. The standard is that of ordinary care. What would an ordinary careful person do under the same or similar circumstances to prevent injury? That’s the legal standard in Wyoming. Of course, that standard is helped by what the safety rules are. What are the safety rules such as an architect would have in regard to a sidewalk? What are the safety rules in regard to steps and stairs? All of those things need to be taken into account. We had an architect tell us one time that the rule is, if there’s a single step, there should be no step. In other words, anytime you have a single step, we know that, statistically, people are more likely to fall over a single step than they are multiple steps or a staircase. People are more likely to fall on a single step, therefore architects and people that design properties ought to take into account that single steps are the most dangerous for pedestrians, and that needs to be taken into account.
What are the standards in regard to that property, and what are the standards that the government has for the way that people should design properties and protect people against injuries? What can be done to eliminate the danger? What can be done to guard against the danger? What can be done to warn against the danger? Those are the design issues that are involved in every property case. We’re happy to help evaluate a case and tell you what the standards are for a premises case.
