Premises Liability

If you or a loved one are injured by an unsafe or defective condition on real property, the owners and the parties who control that property may be held financially responsible for your injuries and damages.

Most people are familiar with “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” cases.

However, there are many kinds of premises liability cases, and you may have a claim under several different circumstances:

  • Premises liability claims may result from an injury on public or private property.
  • Your injury may occur outdoors or inside.
  • The injury giving rise to a premises liability claim may occur in a private home, in a grocery store or other business, in a parking lot or on a sidewalk.
  • You may recover if you are a tenant or the guest of a tenant, and you are injured while on rental property.

    Common types of premises liability cases include:

  • Slip and fall on a dangerous condition (such as wet or oily/waxy floors; icy sidewalks or steps; spilled food, beverages or other liquids);
  • Snow and ice accidents;
  • Poorly maintained properties (which may have broken or uneven walking surfaces, thresholds or stairways, or lack exterior lighting causing you to encounter unseen hazards);
  • Defective or dangerous condition on a property (including trips and falls on unsecured rugs or carpets, or loose cords or wires);
  • Inadequate security, leading to an injury or assault while on the property;
  • Injuries caused by malfunctioning elevators and escalators; Injuries and even deaths that occur in swimming pools (often involving children who fall victim to unsupervised and unsecured pools);
  • Certain dog bite claims may even be brought as premises liability claims;
  • Fires caused by defective electrical or construction work, or due to some other failure to maintain the premises;
  • Water leaks and flooding; and,
  • The release of toxic fumes or chemicals. .
