Many people are hurt each year because property owners fail to notify the public of an unsafe condition or fail to keep their property in a safe condition.
Premises liability claims involve slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall situations. Property owners must legally provide a safe environment for people lawfully on their property.
When a property owner fails to keep his property in a safe condition, he may become liable for the victim’s physical, financial, and emotional burdens.
Premises Liability Claim
For victims to have a valid premises liability claim, the property owner must have caused, been aware of, or should have been aware of, an unsafe condition.
Valid premises liability claims usually result from:
- Ice or snow accumulation
- Inadequate lighting
- Spilled food or drink in a restaurant or store
- Torn, raised, or worn carpeting
- Obstructions, such as electrical cords
- Other causes
