Premises Liability

Have You Been Injured in an Accident on Someone Else’s Property?

When you are injured in an accident on someone else’s property, your personal injury claim would fall under a category known as premises liability. You would be eligible to seek damages for your medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, and other damages permitted by law. Those liable could include owners of residential homes, owners of apartment buildings, commercial establishments, office buildings, property management firms, dining establishments, taverns, security companies, landlords, shopping malls, and other similar examples.

What Types of Accidents Qualify for This Type of Claim?

There are many types of situations which can occur on someone else’s property causing a full range of injuries. There are far too many types of premises liability cases to list them all, but a few examples of the claims include:

  • Unmarked danger zones
  • Unprotected pools
  • Falling merchandise or debris
  • Inadequate security
  • Improperly maintained equipment
  • Unrestrained dangerous dogs
  • Disregard for guest, customer or employee safety
  • Noncompliance with laws, codes and protocols
  • Failed supervision or poor management
  • Defective property access

Some of these issues can lead to a variety of traumatic or fatal events which can include dog bites; slips and falls; criminal activity; electrocutions or burns; drowning; or allowing patrons to operate a vehicle while intoxicated. If the owner of the property was aware of or should have been in control of any of these conditions, it is possible that negligence was involved and the owner should be held accountable for the ensuing tragedies.

What Kind of Injury Have You Suffered?

Among the many injuries for which victims of premises liability file personal injury cases are some of the following:

  • Broken bones or Fractures
  • Paralysis (Quadriplegia or Paraplegia)
  • Concussion, Head Injury or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
