Premises Liability

Premises Liability Should Not Be Taken Lightly

Business owners should always provide a safe environment for customers, but unfortunately, this does not always happen. If an injury occurs on the property owner’s land, it is their legal obligation to take responsibility. It does not matter if the injury was severe or just a minor one. The business owner must comply with the premises liability laws by compensating the injured person.

Unsafe Situations Create Premises Liability

Any property owner, from food establishments to apartment complexes, must follow the premises liability law. However, the laws are often complex, and there are factors that need to be examined before a person files a premises liability complaint against a landowner.  We can help.  

A Premises Liability Complaint is Filed Against the Landowner of the Property

This means that if you slipped and fell in a restaurant for example and tried to sue the restaurant manager, then the premises liability case is invalid; unless the manager is also the landowner.

Also, the injured person must have been invited onto the premises. If you are trespassing on private property and you injure yourself, you will likely have no claim.

Premises Liability Law

The premises liability law will cover damages if the injury was caused by a dangerous environment, such as wet floors, open construction, or unstable structures. This means that if an injury is self-inflicted or has no connection to an unsafe environment, the injuries will not be covered by premises liability.
