Premises LiabilityPremises liability is the liability of a property owner for injuries occurring to other people.

The injuries covered under Premises Liability can be caused by hazardous conditions, including open excavations, uneven pavement, still water, spoiling & crumbling curbs, wet-floors, uncleared snow, icy walks, falling objects, inadequate security, insufficient lighting, concealed holes, improperly secured mats, or defects in furniture.

Federal, state, and local laws require that property owners and property managers keep their property safe for those who may use it. A property or a premise that is not adequately maintained can be very dangerous to a patron or visitor.

Businesses and property owners owe a duty of care to their patrons and visitors. When the duty of care is not kept then a patron or visitor may suffer serious injuries and losses.

Common examples of premises liability are:

  • Dangerous structures
  • Improper maintenance
  • Defective conditions

If you have sustained an injury on someone else’s property, even if the injury was caused by a third person, you may have the right to file a lawsuit under the legal theory of premises liability.

See our section on Serious Personal Injury. Any of these injuries can unfortunately occur and have life altering effects on the injured person.

See our sections titled Accident Dos and Don’ts, FAQ, and Damages and Compensation.
