Types of Premises Liability Cases
When you're visiting a friend, shopping in a store, or spending your time anywhere other than your own home, injuries may occur because of the property owner's negligence. This can be something as simple as a person failing to properly trim their trees which led to an accident, and it can be as serious as an assault occurring because a store failed to provide significant security around their premises. The following are common causes of premises liability injuries:
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Construction site injuries
- Hotel injuries
- Assaults due to negligent security
- Poorly maintained stairs
- Uneven flooring
- Wet flooring with no warning signs
- Broken railings
- Pool injuries or drowning
If a property owner allows their home or business to go into disrepair which leads to your injury, you have the right to seek financial restitution to cover your insurance claims, medical bills, and suffering.
Elements of a Premises Liability Case
The legal process can be extremely daunting if you are unfamiliar with it. Working with a premises liability lawyer means that you have an expert in the field on your side. They can make sure that you are gathering the right evidence and building the best case. The elements of a premises liability case that you need to prove are:
- There was a dangerous condition on someone else’s property
- The property owner was negligent in his duty
- Your injury is a result of the landlord’s negligence
Proving these three things is essential in building a successful premises liability case.
