What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability law governs a property owner’s duty to ensure that their premises are reasonably safe and do not present any known hazards to visitors. This legal obligation applies to businesses and commercial entities, public entities, landlords and homeowners.

How Can Premises Liability Be Proven?

In order to prove premises liability, we will need to be able to demonstrate that the owner or proprietor (a) knew or should have known that a dangerous condition existed and (b) failed to correct the dangerous condition or to give proper warning of the danger. Examples of common hazards that cause slip-and-falls or other injuries include:
  • Spills or slippery floors
  • Broken concrete or tripping hazards
  • Missing or broken handrails on stairs
  • Poor lighting in stairwells
  • Falling merchandise

Successful premises liability claims can result in compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages or diminished earning capacity, and pain and suffering. Premises liability claims are common at amusement parks, playgrounds, day cares, grocery stores, bars and restaurants, hotels, apartment buildings, laundromats, theaters and parking lots.

Who Can Be Held Liable For Injuries?

If you are injured on a commercial property such as a store, office or business, your claim will either be handled by the building owner’s insurance company or the business owner’s insurance company, depending on the nature of the accident. You should notify the business owner or manager about your injuries as soon as possible. You should speak with an experienced premises liability attorney as soon as possible after your accident in order to protect your rights.
