Premises Liability Lawsuits

If you are injured at a store or business, you may have grounds to file what is called a premises liability lawsuit. This is an area of personal injury law that relates to accidents that occur as a result of a dangerous property.

You see, property owners have a responsibility to maintain their properties in a way that is safe and free from hazards. If a hazard does arise, the property owner must block off the area or install a sign indicating that there is a hazard. If they fail to do these things, they can be held liable for any accidents or injuries that occur.

Premises liability claims can arise out of more than a slip and fall accident. These claims can result from:

  • Parking lot injuries
  • Unsecured shopping carts
  • Poor lighting
  • Defective escalators or elevators
  • Broken stairs or railings
  • Overcrowding
  • Falling objects
  • Walkway debris
  • Defective sidewalks
  • Standing water, leaves, or ice
