Premises Liability Injuries, Slip and Fall Accident
Unsafe conditions on properties are the cause of thousands of injuries to people injured every year. Landowners are responsible to maintain safe conditions on their property. Many people are injured severely from the following common types of on property accidents because the landowner fails in their duty to maintain their property. These are the most common personal injuries premises liability:
Liability of the Landowners
From negligence due to:
- Slip and fall (water, snow, and ice falls, slippery retails establishment conditions)
- Building code violations
- Defective stairs, balconies, or porches
- Holes and sinkholes
- Unexpected protruding objects
- Unsafe parking lot conditions
- Sidewalk defects
- Negligent security
- Dog bites
- Escalator accidents
- Water accidents/drowning
It is always important in these cases to try to document the reason for the accident immediately. Some cases are won or lost based on the type of proof obtained right after an accident on someone’s property. Always take pictures if possible, obtain substances causing the fall, document holes, objects, unnatural accumulation of ice, or dangerous conditions.
Unfortunately not all premises liability cases are viable cases, but it is important to always consult with an attorney to get a professional opinion. In many cases insurance will cover medical bills up to a certain monetary amount in the property owner’s policy that cover accidents on the property even if there is no fault of the landowner.
