What Is a Premises Liability Claim?

A premises liability claim is a type of personal injury claim that arises when a person is injured on someone else’s property due to the property owner’s negligence.

In general, property owners have a duty to maintain safe conditions on their premises. If they fail to do so, and someone is injured, you can hold the property owner liable for the injured party’s damages.

The Most Common Premise Liability Claims

Slip and Fall Accidents 

By far, the most common type of premises liability claims are slip and fall accidents. These incidents occur when a person slips, trips, or falls due to a hazardous condition on a property.

Examples of these conditions include wet or slippery floors, ice or snow, loose carpeting, or uneven surfaces like cracked sidewalks or potholes. Poor lighting, which can hide these dangers, can also contribute to such accidents.

Property owners have a responsibility to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn visitors of any potential hazards. If they fail in this duty, and someone is injured; as a result, they may be held liable for the victim’s injuries.

Negligent Security 

Negligent security claims arise when a property owner fails to take reasonable security measures and someone is injured as a result. This typically happens in apartment complexes, hotels, parking garages, and other properties where people may be vulnerable to crime.

Lack of sufficient lighting, faulty door locks, broken gates, and lack of security personnel are some of the issues that can contribute to negligent security claims.

If a property owner knew or should have known about the potential for criminal activity and failed to take appropriate measures, they can be held liable for resulting injuries.

Swimming Pool Accidents: 

Swimming pool accidents can lead to severe injuries, particularly when children are involved.

Property owners, whether private or public, have a duty to ensure their pools are safe. This can include installing proper fencing to prevent unauthorized access, maintaining the pool and its equipment in a safe condition, providing appropriate life-saving equipment, and hiring lifeguards for public pools.

If a property owner fails to meet these standards and someone is injured or drowns; as a result, a premises liability claim may follow.

Dog Bites

Dog bites represent another common source of premises liability claims. Many states have strict liability laws regarding dog bites, which means that you can hold a dog owner responsible for any injuries their dog causes, regardless of whether the owner was negligent or knew the dog might be dangerous.

However, the specifics of dog bite laws can vary widely from one jurisdiction to another, affecting the potential liability of the dog owner.

Elevator and Escalator Accidents

Elevators and escalators are common in many types of properties, including shopping malls, office buildings, and apartment complexes. Improperly maintained or inspected elevators and escalators can cause serious injuries. Falling in an elevator shaft, being caught between moving parts, or tripping and falling due to abrupt stops or uneven surfaces are just a few of the potential hazards.

Other Common Causes of Premises Liability Accidents Include:

  • Poor lighting
  • Unsecured rugs or carpets
  • Improperly Stored equipment or merchandise
  • Faulty electrical wiring
  • Open excavations
  • Insufficient snow or ice removal
  • Malfunctioning gates or doors
  • Unsafe construction sites
  • Broken or defective furniture
  • Poorly maintained playgrounds
  • Lack of warning signs
  • Structural failure
  • Staircase accidents
  • Parking lot accidents
  • Hazardous chemical spills or leaks

What Compensation Can I Expect in a Premises Liability Claim?

After a premises liability injury, you might recover damages or compensation.

The exact amount you may receive can depend on:

The severity of the injury: In general, the more severe the injury, the higher the potential compensation. This can cover medical bills, rehabilitation costs, and any necessary long-term care.

Loss of income: If the injury caused you to miss work, you could be compensated for lost wages, earnings, and benefits. If the injury impacts your future earning potential, that could also be taken into account.

Pain and suffering: Some jurisdictions allow for compensation for physical pain and emotional distress caused by the accident and injury.

Property damage: If any personal property was damaged in the incident, you might be reimbursed for repair or replacement costs.

Quality of evidence: Clear, well-documented evidence of the dangerous condition and your injuries can strengthen your case and potentially increase your compensation. Our attorneys will build a strong claim in your favor to ensure you receive maximum compensation.

Statute of limitations: Each state has a deadline for filing a premises liability lawsuit, known as the statute of limitations. If you don’t file your lawsuit within this time frame, you may lose your right to seek compensation. Your lawyer will ensure that you don’t miss any important deadlines and that your case is handled as efficiently as possible. 

Each case is unique, so consult a knowledgeable premises liability attorney who can assess your situation. They can give you a better idea of what compensation you might expect based on the details of your case and the laws in your jurisdiction.

Don’t let a premises liability incident set you back.
