What Is Premises Liability?
Property owners may be responsible if guests are injured on their premises due to dangerous conditions on their property. This area of law is known as premises liability. If the property condition cannot be corrected, property owners are at least responsible to warn guests of the danger.
Examples of dangerous conditions include:
- Unsafe structures such as porches with loose railings or rotted floorboards;
- Cracked or uneven sidewalks;
- Building code violations;
- Wet or slippery floors;
- Accumulations of snow and ice;
- Misplaced objects that create a tripping hazard; and
- Attractive nuisances such as a swimming pool with an unlocked gate.
If you are injured due to property owner negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our lawyers will thoroughly investigate your case to determine if your injury was foreseeable and preventable by the property owner. Then we will seek full compensation for everything you have lost.
