What Causes Premises Liability Claims?
Premises liability law typically is applied in cases where an individual’s injury or death was incurred due to the risky, hazardous, or unsafe conditions on another individual’s property.
These types of conditions may include and are not limited to:
- Missing steps
- Missing railings
- Icy sidewalks
- Insufficient security
- Improperly maintained or malfunctioning elevators
- Wet floors, unmarked
- Loose roofing materials including shingles
- Dangerous or improperly maintained escalators
- Water leaks / flooding
- Chemical fumes
- Swimming pools without fencing
When Do I Have a Premises Liability Case?
Premises liability law ensures that property owners have a “duty of care.” They must ensure that their property is up to a certain standard. If visitors are injured on their property—even, in some cases, if the visitor was trespassing—property owners may be held liable for their injuries. The plaintiff must show that the owner of the property knew about the hazardous condition or should have known about it and failed to remedy the problem.
