Common Premises Liability Law Questions
Premises liability law can be complicated to understand – here are some of the most common questions we receive:
What does premises liability mean? Premises liability is the area of law that holds a landowner, someone who possesses property, or someone tasked with maintaining that property liable for injuries that take place on the property in question. Lawsuits are usually brought when the injury is caused by a hazardous condition that the person responsible was aware of and failed to either warn visitors of or failed to properly address.
I was injured. Can I file a lawsuit? That depends on several factors, including whether or not the person responsible reasonably should have known about and addressed the hazard. In certain temporary conditions, like liquid spills, there are several other key factors you need to take into account like how long the spill was present or if it was a reoccurring issue in that area. Your attorney will be able to help you determine whether or not the person responsible can be considered liable.
What do I need to do for my claim to be successful? You need to be able to prove that your injuries were directly caused by negligence or wrongdoing on the part of the person responsible for maintaining the property.
What are some examples of hazardous or dangerous conditions? Some of the more common examples include:
- Dangerous pets
- Dog bites
- Dead trees or branches
- Loose roofing materials
- Icy pavement or sidewalks
- Unmarked wet floors
- Poor lighting
- Inadequate security
- Missing or broken railings
- Broken ladders or staircases
- Open wells
- Open drainage ditches
Premises liability law can be complicated to understand, so your best course of action is to speak with a qualified attorney in order to determine whether or not you have the necessary evidence and information to continue with your lawsuit.
