What is Premises Liability?

Premises Liability cases occur where an injury was caused by some type of unsafe or defective condition on someone’s property. Some common types of personal injury cases associated with Premises Liability cases include:

  • Slip and fall
  • Inadequate maintenance or security of property
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Fires
  • Swimming pool or amusement park accidents

When an injury occurs as a result of dangerous property conditions, the property owner is generally held liable for the injuries and damages that occur. However, most property owners or insurance companies will not compensate an injury victim without a battle and there are numerous legal complications involved with a premises liability claim.
