What Is Premises Liability?

If you sustain an injury in a slip-and-fall accident, you will need to petition for compensation through what the legal community refers to as “premises liability.” This term refers to a fairly simple idea: property owners are responsible for ensuring that their property is safe. The legal terminology may be confusing, but we find these examples helpful. A case is generally a premises liability case if your injury is caused by:

  • Dangerous unlighted areas, like parking lots or garages
  • Broken flooring or stairs likely to cause falls
  • Unsecured carpeting or other flooring

In all of these cases, the owner has a responsibility to secure the dangerous situation and has a reasonable expectation of knowing the danger exists. If you are struggling due to a similar situation, speak with our lawyer today.
