Premise liability litigation is one of the broadest categories of personal injury law. It 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. Premise liability accidents are often labeled as "slip and fall" accidents, but, in reality, can be much more fatal than what the name implies.
When a person has suffered this sort of injury, and they believe it to be because of the negligence of another person, they may be able to file a lawsuit to compensate for their medical bills, lost earnings, permanent disabilities, emotional distress or damage to their earning capacity.
Cases arise from injuries occurring in residential and commercial buildings, shopping centers and parking facilities, hotel and casinos, amusement parks, nightclubs and bars, and universities and public schools. The general rule of law is that the owner or operator of the premises must keep their property safe or warn others of dangerous conditions.
