Understanding Premises Liability Law

Just because you slipped and fell on someone else’s property does not automatically qualify you to file a premises liability claim. Additionally, just because there may have been a questionably unsafe condition on the property does not mean that the property owner or manager is liable. What needs to be demonstrated in a premises liability claim is that the owner or manager had knowledge of or should reasonably have had knowledge of the dangerous condition and did not take an action to repair the condition.

Premises liability cases can be based on a wide variety of scenarios. Examples include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Fires
  • Leaks and floods
  • Toxic chemical or fumes
  • Assaults due to inadequate or lack of proper security

Injuries from premises liability cases can occur on residential as well as commercial properties, such as hotels, restaurants, retail stores, office buildings, sports arenas, and more. Owners and managers of these premises owe a duty of care to any lawful visitors such as clients, customers, patients, vendors, and employees. When that duty of care is breached leading to injury, it may be grounds for a valid claim seeking compensation for the injury-related losses of medical expenses, loss of wages, and more.
