Premises liability law deals with the responsibility of property owners and property managers to maintain safe premises, free of dangerous conditions that could foreseeably result in harmful accidents and injuries.
Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere and can cause serious personal injuries. Slip and falls often happen in commercial settings, such as grocery stores, drug stores, office buildings, construction sites, gas stations and malls, but they also happen on private property or residences. Premises Liability accidents can include toxic exposure, animal attacks, swimming pool accidents and amusement park ride accidents.
The owners/managers of both public and private properties have the legal duty to maintain safe premises. Whether you are an invited guest in a home, or shopping at a mall, or enjoying your vacation at a hotel, you may be entitled to compensation for injuries suffered by you.
Some common types of Premises Liability cases include:
- Swimming pool drownings
