When a person is harmed while on the property of another, it may be actionable if an unsafe condition was allowed to be present on that land or at that business.
A premises liability lawsuit can be brought against the property owner responsible for any damages arising out of an injury that takes place on that person or entity’s property. In most instances, owners that occupy a property must make a reasonable effort to maintain a safe environment for visitors to it. Failure to keep the property safe for visitors can result in a “premises liability” cause of action that entitles the injured person to seek recovery for the harm created. Some of the lawsuits that are filed in these cases are based upon
- Negligent or Inadequate Security
- Dangerous Conditions on the Property
- Inadequate or Faulty Maintenance
- Negligent Hiring, Training & Supervision of Employees
- Hotel, Restaurant & Hospitality Liability
- Mall and Retail Store Liability
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Swimming Pool Injuries
- Children Injuries on Property
- Animal and Dog Bites
Vast legal experience, well-targeted investigation and effective trial preparation can help demonstrate that a particular episode or set of facts are recognized as a viable matter entitled to an appropriate recovery.
Some states may follow different rules about who can recover for premises liability situations, and under which conditions. Some jurisdictions will focus on the status of the person visiting the property to determine whether there can be a correct judgment of liability. The status of a visitor in such states may be evaluated based upon whether the injured person was on the premises as an invitee or licensee, or perhaps be deemed a trespasser.
