Premises Liability Law is a set of laws the holds property owners and property mangers accountable for maintaining premises that are safe and free of situations that may result in dangerous accidents and injuries. The owners/managers of both public and private properties are required by law to maintain safe premises. Whether you are shopping in a department store, staying at a hotel for a vacation, visiting someone in their home, or grocery shopping at a local market, you may be entitled for damages for any injuries you may have sustained while at these locations. Premises Liability accidents can also include toxic exposure, animal attacks, swimming pool accidents and amusement park ride accidents.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents are very common and may happen anywhere, and in many cases they may cause severe injuries. Slip and falls often happen in common everyday locations, such as grocery stores, restaurants, office buildings, construction sites, gas stations and shopping malls. Additionally, they can happen on private property.
Some common types of Premises Liability cases include:
- Swimming pool drowning
- Elevator, escalator, and automatic door accidents
- Slip & fall accidents in restaurants, stores or shopping malls
- Tripping caused by electrical cords, unguarded openings, exposed pipes
- Falling objects
- Amusement park accidents
- Accidents in parking lots, parking garages and ramps
- Accidents in sports stadiums
- Injuries due to inadequate security or safeguards
- Sexual assault due to inadequate security
In many cases clients think that accidents are their fault and later learn that conditions of the property were dangerous or defective, and that their injury could have been prevented had the property owner/manager taken greater precautions and maintained the property up to legal standards. Therefore, even if you think you may be at fault, you actually may be entitled to seek compensation. It is important that you contact a qualified attorney to conduct a thorough analysis of your claim.
