What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is the legal term used to describe a case arising from injuries caused by negligence in design, maintenance or construction of a property. The property can be public, commercial or residential. Individuals injured because of dangerous property conditions can seek compensation and damages for their losses and expenses through a premises liability claim.

Premises liability cases can involve:

  • Broken stairs and railings
  • Inadequate or defective lighting
  • Broken pavement
  • Slippery floors
  • Torn carpet

Experience Proving Fault In Slip-And-Fall Cases

In cases resulting from conditions such as these, an attorney must also demonstrate that the property owner or manager neither provided warnings about the defects nor made reasonable attempts to correct the problems. This often requires investigating the property, the owner and the history of claims against the property.
