Examples of Possible Premises Liability Cases
Often, insureds question exactly what qualifies as a premises liability case. These cases can be tricky, as the key factor involves the condition of the premises owner being negligent in the ownership or maintenance of their property. Examples of personal injuries that could be classified as premises liability include:
Accidents Involving Snow and Ice on Your Property
Slip or Fall Instances - Icy Parking Lots, Defective Entry & Exit Design
Defective Items on the Property
Inadequate Property Maintenance
Water Leaks, Flooding, Etc.
Injury or Assaults Stemming from Inadequate Building Security Measures
Accidents Involving Swimming Pools on the Premises
Elevator or Escalator Incidents
Accidents in or Around an Amusement Park
Toxic Chemicals or Fumes
These kinds of cases can be tricky, as the simple fact of an injury occurring on your property doesn’t immediately qualify as premises liability. The major component must be some form of unsafe condition on the property stemming from negligence on behalf of the property owner.
Slip & Fall Accidents
A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere and for a variety of reasons. We provide representation for victims of all types of slip and fall accidents. Talk to our lawyer, describe the conditions, and we’ll provide your best options for pursuing financial compensation. The most common types of slip and fall accidents include the following:
Dangerous Conditions – Businesses and maintenance companies must inform the public about wet floors and other dangerous conditions.
Defective Construction – From uneven sidewalks to broken railings and loose boards, you must post some type of notification and work quickly to resolve the problems.
Inadequate Maintenance – Lack of maintenance or inadequate maintenance can be a cause for a slip and fall.
It’s vital that product manufacturers ensure that their products are free of blemishes or defects that could cause injury or fatality. When a company fails to properly test or notify the public of a problem, you may have a product liability claim against the manufacturer. Common examples of this include defects in toys, improperly tested cosmetics, and more. Call us to evaluate your claims.
