Premises Liability cases are also known as slip and fall cases. Someone slipping, tripping, or falling to due a property owner’s negligent upkeep is basis for a premises liability claim. We have a team of aggressive, professional lawyers to handle the claims of people who have suffered serious injuries.
You must handle premises liability cases carefully. In an era when a jury finds premises liability for injuries suffered by an elderly lady who spilled coffee in her lap, it may seem that a premises liability case is easy to prove. However, this is a misconception.
A building, and or the land it is on constitutes as premises. Whatever happens on those premises is the responsibility of the owner of the premises and is therefore liable. For instance, let’s say you live in an old neighborhood, with old trees. Some of the sidewalk in front of your house is buckled up from the tree’s roots growing underneath. If someone trips over the sidewalk on your premises, the law may consider you the liable party.
This is just one instance, there are many more situations that can lead to a slip and fall lawsuit. For example, slippery floors, broken stairs, missing railings, poor lighting, loose carpet, or malfunctioning equipment may cause a slip and fall injury. You may file a premises liability claim if the injury would have been avoidable had the property owner taken preventative measures.
Some examples possible premises liability cases include:
- Conditions that cause slip and fall injuries
- Broken or cracked sidewalks, stairs, and escalators
- Toxic or hazardous substances
- Swimming pools and spas
- Inadequate security resulting in theft, rape or attack
- Stairway and balcony collapses
