Accidents That Can Lead To Premises Liability Claims
At the center of every premises liability claim is an accident and injury that occurred on another’s property. The following types of accidents are common in this type of case:
- Slips, trips, and falls;
- Falls down stairs;
- Falls from heights;
- Exposure to toxic substances;
- Falling objects;
- Structure collapses.
All of these accidents have the potential to cause serious and even permanent injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and neck, back, or spinal injuries.
Holding Negligent Property Owners Liable
Property and business owners have the legal duty to make sure the premises are free from hazards or conditions that could be dangerous for customers or other visitors. Owners cannot avoid liability simply by claiming they did not know about a hazard, as they also have the duty to regularly inspect the premises. Therefore, they may be held liable for dangerous conditions of which they should have been aware. If a dangerous condition exists and cannot be remedied immediately, the property owner must properly warn visitors of the condition so that they may take appropriate caution. If you suffer injury due to dangerous conditions on a premises, you are entitled to seek compensation from the negligent property owner for your medical expenses, lost income, and other losses.
