A premises liability claim arises when a visitor or tenant of a property is injured due to the misconduct or negligence of the owner of the property. If you have suffered an injury which you believe may be due to the negligence of the property owner, you may be entitled to damages to compensate you for your injury and treatment, as well as the emotional suffering and financial loss you have incurred.
Injuries on properties can include those from:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog bites or maulings
- Exposure to toxic or hazardous substances such as lead or mold
- Dangerous equipment or machinery
- Falling objects
- Fires and explosions
- Failure to mark or identify hazardous conditions
In cases involving premises liability, plaintiffs must show one or more of the following:
- the property owners failed to properly maintain the property
- the property owner created unsafe conditions which caused the injury
- the property owner had previous knowledge about the unsafe hazard but failed to alert visitors or tenants to the condition
- the property owner was not adequately diligent in addressing unsafe conditions which might attract children
- the property owner took actions or neglected conditions that caused damage to a neighboring property.
