The law requires property owners to properly manage, supervise, inspect and operate their property in order to minimize any unnecessary risk of harm to others. If it can be proven that a property owner was negligent and knew or should have known about a dangerous or defective condition that caused an injury to someone on their premises, the injured person is entitled to recover damages.
Types of Premises Liability Cases
When people think of premises liability cases, they usually think of slip and falls, i.e. a grocery store patron slips in a puddle of water or on a banana peel and takes a nasty spill. This is the quintessential premises liability case and they often result in some very serious injuries. Our lawyers have experience in all types of slip and fall cases including:
- Foreign objects or liquids on the floor
- Slick or uneven floors
- Holes or gaps in pavement
- Inadequate lighting
- Construction defects or code violations
- Carpet defects
- Uneven or missing handrails
- Slippery bathtubs or showers
- Defective or broken stairs
In addition to slip and falls, there are many other types of premises liability cases. A property owner can cause injuries or death from:
- Faulty wiring
- Defective design
- Falling objects
- Injuries from collapsed structures
- Forklift or dolly accidents
- Insufficient lighting
- Obstructed pathways
