Examples of Premises Liability
Most premises liability cases involve places of business, mainly because they are the places that receive the most amount of visitor traffic. However, private property owners are also responsible to keep their own grounds safe for visitors, and they may be liable if an accident occurs on their property due to negligence. Common types of premises liability include:
- Slip or Trip-and-fall accidents—e.g., you fall and injure yourself due to a slick spot or uneven surface.
- Inadequate maintenance—e.g., an elevator or escalator accident, or injury from a faulty amusement park ride.
- Inadequate building security—e.g., you are assaulted on the property because of improper security features.
For a victim to receive compensation on a premises liability claim, we must effectively demonstrate several things the most important of which is that :he owner or caretaker did not exercise reasonable care to prevent the accident (for instance, placing caution signs around a slick area or keeping up with regularinspections).
