Premises Liability cases are more commonly known as “slip and fall cases,” but that does not mean that this type of personal injury law is limited to slipping on wet surfaces. Premises liability cases deal with any injury that occurs as a result of unsafe conditions.
This can mean that someone slipped and fell, tripped and fell, or somehow became injured due to their environment. Under the law, property owners must take “reasonable care” of their environment. If they fail to do this, and someone becomes injured, the property owner can be held responsible for any injuries that occur.
Common Types of Premises Liability Cases:
Pool accidents. If not properly cared for or maintained, pools can become exceedingly dangerous.
Elevator and escalator accidents. If not adequately maintained or marked, these devices can quickly become very dangerous.
Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents. Hazards on the floor, wet surfaces, and uneven stairs can all lead to significant fall injuries.
Asbestos or led related illnesses. If you wind up ill after ingesting poison in a particular environment, you have solid grounds for a premises liability case.
Factors That Can Make Premises Liability Cases Challenging:
It can be easy to brush-off premises liability accidents when they occur. If the accident happens in public, it is natural to feel embarrassed and be dismissive of help, but do yourself a favor and take any fall or accident that you have seriously.
