A premises liability case deals with injuries caused by a property owner’s failure to maintain their property or to warn visitors of known or potentially dangerous conditions. The most common types of premises liability cases are slip and fall cases, construction accidents, and assaults due to inadequate security measures.
- Slip and fall cases: A property owner has a duty to warn its invitees, guests, and in some cases even trespassers of known dangerous conditions. A failure to warn of a known dangerous condition can subject people to severe and crippling injuries. Dangerous conditions include wet liquids, tripping hazards, leaky gutters, large potholes, failure to keep a building up to code, and a whole lot more. Premises liability cases can occur in grocery stores, parking lots, office buildings, or even a friend/family member’s home.
- Construction accidents: If you’ve been injured while on a construction site, there are many parties that can be held responsible for you injuries. These include property owners, general contractors, and subcontractors. Because there are many different companies working on construction sites, an immediate investigation needs to be performed to determine the at-fault parties to hold them responsible for the injuries that have been caused.
- Assaults: Many times innocent people are victims of assault while legally on a property owner’s premises. If a property owner failed to take adequate security measures to ensure your safety while on their premises, you may be entitled to financial recovery for your injuries directly from the property owner.
Being injured while on someone else’s property is not a preferable experience and can be lead to life altering injuries. Don’t let property owners off the hook after they failed to perform their duty of keeping you safe while on their premises. There are an abundance of duties that a property owner owes to you and there can be dire consequences that span from minor injury, all the way to death.
