Types of Premises Liability Cases

Serious falls are among the most common premises liability injury. As the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) notes, there are millions of falls each year in the United States, and hundreds of thousands of them are serious enough to warrant hospital admission. But falls, as serious as they may be, are not the only type of premises liability issue. Others include:

  • Dog bite attacks and animal attacks.
  • Dog knockdown events.
  • Leaks of carbon monoxide.
  • Unsafe elevators or escalators.
  • Broken handrails or stair railings.

There is a myriad of ways that people can become injured on someone’s property—whether the property is a grocery store, hair salon, public or municipal building, or the backyard of your next-door neighbor. When negligence on the behalf of the property owner causes the accident, then the property owner may be held accountable in many instances for any ensuing damages.

A Duty of Care

If you are lawfully present on property belonging to someone else (not trespassing), then the property owner owes you an implied duty of care to maintain the property in a manner that will not cause you to become injured. If not, they must at least warn the person coming onto the premises of a potential hazard or safety concern. Some ways that property owners fall short of this duty of care and open themselves up to litigation include allowing these conditions to exist:

  • Debris, cords, cables, or wires pose a tripping hazard.
  • Accumulated ice or snow causes slip and fall accidents.
  • Spills that create slippery or wet floors.
  • Uneven flooring, sidewalks, or pathways.
  • Poor lighting.
  • Clutter on the sales floor causing a fall hazard.

Premises Liability Claims: Recovering Damages

Once it is determined that a property owner is liable for the damages that resulted from your injury, you may be entitled to file a claim to be compensated. This claim may include medical bills, lost income, and other compensation.
