Premises liability deals with liability when accidents occur because of dangerous conditions on someone’s property. Some examples of common premises liability cases include:
One of the most common types of premises liability cases involves slip and fall accidents. You might have a valid case if you slip, trip, or fall due to a hazardous condition on someone else’s property—such as a wet floor, uneven pavement, or debris—and sustain injuries.
Property owners have a responsibility to provide proper fire safety measures and maintenance. If a fire occurs due to inadequate fire prevention measures, faulty wiring, or other hazardous conditions, resulting in injury or death, it can lead to a premises liability case.
Malfunctioning elevators or escalators can lead to serious accidents. Property owners and maintenance companies must ensure these devices are in safe working condition. If negligence leads to an accident causing injuries, a premises liability case may arise.
Exposure to toxic substances on someone’s property, whether it’s a workplace or a public space, can result in severe health issues, such as chronic disease. Property owners must prevent exposure and provide proper warnings. You may have a premises liability claim if you suffer harm due to toxic exposure.
Property owners are also responsible for providing reasonable security measures to protect visitors from criminal acts like assaults or robberies. If inadequate security leads to harm, victims can pursue a premises liability claim against the person or party responsible for managing the property where the attack occurred.
Poorly maintained structures can collapse or cause accidents. If a balcony collapses, a roof caves in, or any structural defect leads to injuries, it might constitute a premises liability case.
If you suffer an injury in an accident on someone else’s property, protect your rights and ensure you can obtain any compensation the at-fault party owes you. The most important of these steps include:
Make your well-being your top priority. If you suffered an injury, seek medical attention immediately. Even if your injuries seem minor, get a medical evaluation. Some injuries may not manifest symptoms right away, and you need a medical record to pursue a legal claim.
Avoid making any statements about fault or liability, especially to the property owner or their representatives. They will use anything you say against you. Stick to the facts and avoid speculating about the accident.
Keep detailed records of all medical treatment you receive, including doctor visits, prescriptions, and therapy sessions. These records document your injuries and demonstrate the costs you incurred due to the accident.
Reach out to an experienced premises liability attorney as soon as possible. They can evaluate your case, advise you on your rights, and guide you through the legal process. You need a knowledgeable attorney on your side to protect your interests.
After a premises liability accident, your actions can significantly affect any legal claim you may pursue. By following these steps, you can protect your rights, gather necessary evidence, and increase the likelihood of a favorable outcome if you seek compensation for your injuries and damages.
