What Are the Different Types of Premises Liability Cases?
A premises liability case could arise from any accident in which someone was injured due to the unreasonably and unforeseeably safe conditions on someone else’s property. The property could be either residential or commercial. In order to have a strong premises liability case, our attorney must be able to demonstrate that the property owner either knew or should reasonably have known about the potentially hazardous condition on his or her property and that, despite having sufficient time to remedy the situation and warn visitors of the hazard, failed to take measures to ensure the safety of visitors onto the property. Our lawyers must also be able to show that the injured victim did not act exceedingly carelessly or recklessly in the course of becoming injured.
Common premises liability accidents include:
- Slip and fall accidents, especially on spilled foods or drinks, cleaning agents, water that has leaked or overflowed, and ice.
- Trip and fall accidents, especially on uneven flooring and other surfaces, on broken stairs, and over holes.
- Assaults, robberies, and sexual crimes that occur due to inadequate security on commercial properties.
- Chemical exposure or exposure to other toxins.
- Elevator and escalator accidents.
- Accidents involving being struck by falling objects.
- Accidents that occur due to building or housing code violations.
While there is no way to estimate the damages to which you may be entitled without first evaluating your case, victims of injuries that occur on other people’s premises are often able to recover compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation costs
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Funeral costs (in wrongful death cases)
