What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is often sought during personal injury cases, in which one party has been injured on another’s property. Regardless of the type of property, owners have a duty to maintain a safe environment for all visitors and licensees. If there is a potential hazard on the property, the owner must address it in a timely manner and provide adequate signage to inform visitors of building conditions. If an owner’s neglect of a property results in injury, the property owner can be liable for damages.
Types of Premises Liability Cases
Any number of hazards can lead to a premises liability case. Some of the most common cases we handle include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Accidents on construction sites
- Toxic mold or lead paint contamination
- Dog bites
- Injuries in/around swimming pools
- Lack of adequate security
- Accidents caused by inadequate lighting
The owner is responsible for consistently checking the property for hazardous conditions and remedying them when discovered. Hazardous conditions can involve slippery surfaces, debris in walkways, uneven flooring, or general disrepair.
Damages Sought in Premises Liability Cases
Injuries in a premises liability case can range from minor to life threatening. The extent of the injury will dictate the amount of compensation your attorneys will pursue. Even minor injuries can be costly if they require transportation to a medical facility, overnight hospital stays, or testing and procedures. In addition, physical therapy and other rehabilitative treatments can contribute to the overall financial cost of an injury.
