What Is Premises Liability Law?
Premises liability law deals with injuries resulting from property owner negligence or wrongdoing. In these cases, a visitor to the property sustains some sort of injury that has been caused by the property owner’s failure to provide reasonably safe grounds. That visitor may then seek to hold the property owner financially liable.
Types of Premises Liability Cases
Defective, hazardous, or dangerous conditions at any property can cause serious harm to unsuspecting customers, visitors, or guests. If a victim’s injuries were the result of negligence or wrongdoing on the part of the property owner, this may provide grounds for a valid premises liability case.
Premises liability incidents could include:
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Falls from heights
- Assaults or attacks
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Swimming pool accidents
Where Can a Premises Liability Incident Take Place?
While various locations have different rules and regulations regarding who can be held responsible in a premises liability case, premises liability incidents could take place at:
- Hotels and motels
- Apartment buildings and condominiums
- Retail stores
- Shopping malls
- Grocery stores and markets
- Amusement parks
- Office buildings
- Gyms and fitness studios
- Beauty salons
- Bars and nightclubs
If you or a loved one suffered harm on any type of residential or commercial property owned by another person or business entity, we can determine whether you may have grounds for a lawsuit. This could help you recover much-needed compensation for your medical care, ongoing treatment, lost earnings, and more.
After a dog bite incident, it is important to call the police and file a report. You should also visit hospital or receive medical treatment as soon possible because injuries often lead into large bills that can’t be paid without assistance from third parties such as insurance companies if you’re not covered on your own plan. Contact us today to determine whether or not you may be eligible for compensation.
