Premises liability cases arise when you suffer an injury as a result of a defective or dangerous condition while on the premises of another person or business. Property owners and occupants owe a duty to others to maintain their property free from a dangerous or unsafe condition that is not readily apparent. Premises liability is not solely limited to businesses; it applies to private residences as well. Many times property owners and occupants allow customers, invitees, and licensees to enter an area on their property that may contain slippery floors, trip hazards, dangerous holes, defective/broken staircases and handrails, and broken steps/concrete, which can pose serious risk to invited guests who are unaware of the defect. Many injuries can result from this type of negligence including fractures, torn muscles or ligaments, herniated discs, brain trauma and spinal cord injuries. If an invitee is injured, the owner, operator or manager of the property where the injury occurred may be responsible for the injury.
Typically, buildings and premises are required to comply with building and safety codes that mandate the property meet a certain safety standard. Unfortunately, many buildings and landowners fail to comply with the building and safety codes. As a result, the property can become full of hazardous and unsafe conditions that can cause many serious injuries. Examples of instances in which the owner or operator is liable for injuries include, among others, slip and fall accidents, construction site accidents, negligent security, exposure to chemicals or mold, dog bites, and swimming pool accidents.
