What is Premises Liability?

Property owners have certain responsibilities under local, state, and federal regulations. While these laws can vary, the ground rule is similar, regardless of where an accident occurs. The owners have an obligation to properly maintain their property to ensure the safety of the visitors. Failure to maintain safe properties can result in serious accidents.

If some type of unsafe or faulty condition on someone’s property injures you, you have the right to pursue compensation. You must prove the property owner knew or should have known about the unsafe condition, and still failed to remedy the situation.

Examples of Premises Liability Cases

Premises liability cases arise from one core fact — an accident occurred on a property that belongs to, or is operated by, a person or entity other than the injured.

Common premises liability accidents include:

  • Slip and falls
  • Inadequate maintenance of property
  • Faulty staircase
  • Electrocution
  • Defective sidewalks
  • Insufficient security at a venue

Regardless of where your premises liability accident took place, remember that the property owner had a duty to maintain a safe premise to prevent an accident. if the premises owner failed to take the steps to ensure the property was in proper working condition, you may be eligible for compensation.
