Premises liability is an area of law that deals with a property owner’s responsibility to keep their premises safe for visitors. If they fail to do so and someone is injured, the property owner could be held liable for the damages.

What is Premises Liability?
It is the responsibility of property owners and managers to ensure the security of their property. Businesses must promptly repair and remedy identified hazards or post suitable warnings to visitors.
Property owners are obligated to address safety and security concerns raised by tenants or customers. Businesses, charities, and other public spaces are all subject to this duty of care. In many cases, this obligation applies to homeowners.
An experienced premises liability attorney can assist injured people in holding property owners liable for their losses and injuries under premises liability law.

What Are Some Examples of Premises Liability Claims?
Premises liability claims can arise in many different circumstances. Common examples of premises liability include slip and fall accidents, inadequate security resulting in assaults or robberies, inadequate maintenance causing injury or illness, and negligent construction leading to injuries.
Injuries can occur due to defective equipment, toxic substances on the property, animal attacks, or unsafe swimming pools. It is also possible to pursue a claim if an injury resulted from a lack of warning about a dangerous condition or activity on the premises.
Some examples of claims our premises liability lawyer handles include:
Lack of Security
There are legal requirements for the level of security that must be maintained on certain properties. For instance, you expect to be protected from robbery, rape, or assault when you check into a hotel or go to a nightclub. If you get hurt because the business owners didn’t provide enough security, they could be held accountable.
Accidents at Swimming Pools
Owners of swimming pools are responsible for ensuring all visitors’ safety, including those invited to the property.
Fencing and floating devices that are installed incorrectly can cause accidents. A skilled premises liability attorney can fight for fair recompense when catastrophic injuries or fatal drownings occur.
The tourism industry in our state is booming. Our team has the training and knowledge to assist you if you are injured while enjoying one of our many recreational activities, such as golf, skydiving, or visiting an amusement park or a spa.
Dog Bites and Animal Attacks
Dog bites cause a significant number of hospitalizations each year. Even if you weren’t bitten, you can still be entitled to compensation if a dog charged at you and caused you to become injured while fleeing. A property liability attorney can help you to hold the dog’s owner accountable.
Slip and Fall
One of the most prevalent types of injuries sustained as a result of a landlord’s negligence is a slip and fall. Inadequate maintenance of sidewalks on private property might endanger both invited and unwelcome guests.
While many of these accidents simply cause minor scrapes and bruises, some cause serious harm.
You certainly don’t anticipate getting hit by falling merchandise when you go to the grocery store to pick up your weekly essentials. In retail settings, in particular, careless product stacking poses a serious risk to consumers and other shoppers.
Likewise, an unsecured construction site can result in tools or debris falling on passersby. Traumatic brain injury and bone fractures can result from falling objects.
Accidental shootings, domestic violence incidents, hunting accidents, and even defective firearms can all result in a potentially fatal injury from a firearm.
A property liability lawyer may be able to assist, regardless of whether the damage was the result of owner negligence or the actions of a third party.
Escalator and Elevator Accidents
The maintenance of all escalators and elevators on the site is also the responsibility of the owners. Visitors who use this equipment without realizing it may be broken are at risk of serious injury.
A life-altering injury is the last thing you anticipate when visiting someone else’s property. Sadly, a property owner’s carelessness can inflict serious physical and psychological harm in an instant.
Our premises liability lawyers know the numerous precautions property owners can take to avoid these mishaps. We can help you to build a claim and pursue compensatory damages.
