What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability laws apply to personal injury cases where the victim was harmed by an unsafe or defective condition on another person’s property. As with other personal injury cases, a premises liability claim is based on negligence. All property owners and land occupiers are required to exercise reasonable care in the maintenance of their property. When they fail to abide by their duty of care, they can be held liable if someone else gets injured while on their property.
There are many types of dangerous property conditions, including:
- Wet floors
- Broken floor tiles
- Poor lighting in stairwells
- Lack of security
- Defective staircases
- Broken handrails
- Uneven surfaces
- Loose roof tiles
- Falling objects
If the owner or occupier of the property knew or should have known about the dangerous condition and it can be proven that the condition caused your injury, then you can file a premises liability claim against them.
