The legal term premises liability refers to cases in which an injured person can prove that the owner of a property is responsible for injuries resulting from an accident that occurred on their property. Premises liability accidents are often referred to as "slip and fall" accidents, but, in reality, can be much more serious then that familiar name implies. Premises liability injuries include serious head and spinal cord injuries from falling store products, parking lot auto accidents resulting in serious injuries to pedestrians, and injuries from assault made possible by negligent security. To recover compensation for a premises liability injury, your attorney will need to prove that the property owner (or management) was aware of the hazardous environment and failed to act in a timely manner to remove it or otherwise protect the safety of customers or invited visitors using the property.
Premises liability cases arise from injuries occurring in residential and commercial buildings, shopping centers and parking facilities, hotels and casinos, amusement parks, airports, health care facilities, swimming pools, nightclubs and bars, and also universities and public schools. The general rule of law is that the owner or operator of the premises has a duty to keep the premises in reasonably safe condition or at least warn customers of a dangerous condition which the owner or operator caused, knows about, or should know about.
