Premises Liability

The law provides that individual property owners and business owners must use due care to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition for guests. When property owners and property managers fail to take the necessary steps to ensure their premises are safe for visitors and you are injured as a result of this negligence, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your damages in a premises liability lawsuit.

If you are reading this, perhaps you have been injured due to a slip and fall at a supermarket or a trip and fall due to a protruding concrete walkway.

What Is Premises Liability Law?

Premises liability is an area of law that governs all cases involving injuries that occur on the property of another. Private homes, business establishments, and public places are all covered under premises liability law, which holds these property owners liable for any damages that occur due to their negligent maintenance of the property.

There are many hazardous conditions which may cause premises liability injuries, including:

  • Poorly maintained stairways
  • Unmarked or poorly marked hazards such as wet floors
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Negligent security
  • Unmaintained, unsanitary, or dangerous conditions
  • Slick walkways or driveways
  • Crumbling, cracked, or uneven sidewalks
  • Malfunctioning elevators and escalators
  • Unsafely stacked merchandise in stores
  • Defective handrails
Common Accidents Covered Under Premises Liability Law

The most common type of premises liability case involves slip and fall accidents. However, there are many other ways in which you may have a valid claim, including:

  • Assaults in dark parking lots
  • Robberies made possible by poor security measures
  • Swimming pool drowning accidents
  • Dog bite attacks on the dog owner’s property
  • Being crushed by unsecured overhead stock
  • Chemical exposure
  • Electrical burns

Injuries sustained on dangerous premises are often very serious, resulting in costly medical bills and lost wages while you recover. Mr. Grife will fight aggressively for your rights to ensure the negligent party is held accountable and you recover the compensation you deserve.
