What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is the legal concept that holds property owners responsible for injuries that occur on their property. Property owners have a duty to maintain safe conditions on their property and to warn visitors of any hazards they are aware of. If a property owner fails in this duty and someone is injured as a result, the property owner may be liable for the injured person’s damages.
Slip and falls are one of the most common types of premises liability cases. If you slip and fall on a wet floor or trip over an uneven surface on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Common causes of slip and falls include:
- Wet or slick floors
- Uneven surfaces
- Unmarked or poorly marked hazards
Other types of premises liability cases include:
- Negligent security
- Dog bites
- Toxic exposure
