PREMISES LIABILITY

Premises liability is a legal concept that typically comes into play in personal injury cases where the injury was caused by an unsafe or defective condition on someone’s property. Many personal injury cases are based on negligence, and premises liability cases are no exception. In these cases, the injured party must prove that the property owner was negligent concerning ownership and maintenance of the property. In general, negligence means that the property owner failed to use reasonable care in connection with the property.

It is important to note that because you were injured on someone’s property does not mean that the property owner was negligent. Further, simply because the property might have been in an unsafe condition does not automatically mean that the property owner was negligent. You have to show that the property owner knew or should reasonably have known that the premises were in an unsafe condition, and still failed to take proper steps to remedy the situation.

Many different types of personal injury cases can be classified as premises liability cases, including:

  • Slip and fall cases
  • Snow and ice cases
  • Inadequate maintenance of the premises
  • Defective conditions on the premises
  • Inadequate building security leading to injury or assault
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Fires
  • Water leaks and flooding, and
  • Toxic fumes or chemicals

It’s an owner’s responsibility to keep their property free from dangers. If you have been injured due to a dangerous condition, or an owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. An experienced personal injury lawyer will advocate on your behalf and ensure your rights are protected, so you obtain the compensation you are entitled to. The Law Offices of Tony Morrow are experienced in these areas and can assist you in this endeavor.
