What is "Premises Liability?"

Premises liability is a legal term used to describe a situation in which someone is injured due to a dangerous condition or hazard on another person's property.

These cases typically involve slip-and-fall incidents, but they can also involve other types of accidents, including those involving amusement park rides, swimming pools, defective stairs, and more.

In order to prove a premises liability claim, you will need to show that the property owner owed you a duty of care, that they breached that duty by failing to keep the property reasonably safe, and that your injuries were a foreseeable result of that breach.

Examples of premises liability claims include:

  • Slip and Fall: A common premises liability case is when someone slips and falls on a wet floor, uneven surface, or debris in a store, restaurant, or other public place.
  • Negligent Security: If a property owner fails to provide adequate security measures, such as proper lighting or surveillance, and a person is assaulted or injured due to inadequate security, it may give rise to a premises liability case.
  • Dog Bites: If a person is bitten or attacked by a dog on someone else's property, the property owner may be held liable for the injuries if they knew or should have known about the dog's aggressive tendencies.
  • Elevator or Escalator Accidents: Injuries caused by malfunctioning or poorly maintained elevators or escalators can lead to premises liability claims against the property owner or maintenance company.
  • Swimming Pool Accidents: Property owners who fail to install proper fencing, warning signs, or maintain safe conditions around a swimming pool can be held responsible if someone drowns or sustains injuries in or near the pool.
  • Hazardous Conditions: Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises and keep them free from hazardous conditions. This can include situations such as broken stairs, loose handrails, or exposed wiring.
  • Retail Store Accidents: Injuries that occur in retail stores, such as falling merchandise, collapsing shelves, or inadequate safety measures, can lead to premises liability claims.
  • Amusement Park Accidents: If someone is injured on a roller coaster, water slide, or other amusement park attraction due to negligence or mechanical failure, the property owner or operator may be held liable.
