What is Premises Liability?
Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises reasonably safe and take steps to protect visitors from injuries that are easily avoidable. This includes the owners of both private and commercial properties. Failing to meet this responsibility is negligence, and our attorneys hold them accountable.
Examples of premises liability cases include:
- Slip-and fall accidents
- Parking lot accidents
- Unsafe stairs
- Assaults due to poor security
- Dog bites
- Park and playground accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Getting injured while visiting a construction site
The injuries from these types of accidents vary, but can be quite serious. They can include catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injury or a spinal cord injury. It's important to get a lawyer who will fight for your rights.
