Premises Liability Basics

Under premises liability law, property owners or their agents may be held financially responsible for injuries that are sustained by other persons on their property, if the property is found to have been unsafe or have unmarked hazards. Any property owner, whether of a public space or private residence, has a legal responsibility to help ensure that the property is safe for visitors. If a property owner fails to uphold this duty, he or she may owe financial compensation to those who are injured on the property.

If you or someone you know has been injured on another person’s property, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

Examples of Premises Liability Lawsuits

The specific dangers that guests of a property might be exposed to will depend largely upon the nature of the property and the kind of hazard created by negligence. For example, in shopping malls, stadiums, and other places where significant numbers of people gather, there may be an increased risk of injury due to the provision of inadequate security measures. In a home, by contrast, shoddy maintenance of a porch or walkway may be more likely to cause harm. The following are representative of possible causes for seeking a premises liability lawsuit:

  • Absence of warning signs
  • Uneven pavement
  • The presence of standing water
  • Stage/stair/porch/roof collapse
  • Fires
  • Absence of security staff
  • Slip and fall accidents
