Premises liability law states that property owners have a responsibility to maintain the safety of their premises for all guest, customers, etc. If an accident occurs that is the consequence of negligent or careless property maintenance, the victim can file a premises liability lawsuit against the owner or occupant of the property. Slip and fall accident cases and dog bite cases are some of the most common types of premises liability cases. If you are the victim of a slip and fall accident or dog bite contact the lawyers at CARRINGTON LAW OFFICES, P.C. today.
Other common types of premises liability cases involve:
• Inadequate security, lights, or surveillance resulting in an assault by a third party
• Trips and falls caused by uneven walkways, sidewalks, or failure to properly maintain railings or stairs
• Products falling at a store
• Construction site accidents
• Pool drowning
• Falls in the produce aisle of a supermarket or grocery store
An important aspect of a premises liability claim is the ability to show that the property owner was negligent in guaranteeing the safety of those invited to the premises. For example, if you fall on a wet floor and there was no sign warning you of the wet floor, the owner of the property may be liable for any injuries you receive as a result of the fall. Each premises liability lawsuit is considered on an individual basis.
