Premises liability law ensures your safety when you are on someone else’s property. Owners and managers of property are responsible for maintaining their property to protect you from accidents, injuries, or criminal activity while you are there.
This law protects people from harm and helps them pay for medical bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and other related expenses.
Common Types of Premises Liability Injuries include:
- Falling objects
- A broken walkway
- Improper signage
- Debris, ice, oil, etc., on a walkway
- Slip and fall on the premises, parking lot, sidewalk, etc.
- Amusement Park Rides
Inadequate building security and swimming pool accidents are also common types of premises accidents.
Inadequate building security is a building owner’s duty to act reasonably in securing access to the buildings. If someone breaks in (or simply walks in through an unlocked door) and assaults or kills someone inside the building, that person may have a premises liability case against the building owner.
Swimming pool accidents occur when children or adults are harmed in an unsupervised and unsecured pool. For this reason, most states and municipalities have laws and ordinances requiring that swimming pools have a fence around them, often with a locking gate. A pool owner may be liable if someone leaves their pool open and unguarded.
You should feel safe on someone else’s property and not that you are going to be harmed. If the unthinkable happens, you need well-versed premises liability lawyers to hold the at-fault property owner accountable and secure the compensation you need to get back on your feet.
