Premises Liability

Premises LiabilityPremises Liability includes “trip-and-fall” or “slip-and-fall” cases, among others. Where the owner or operator of a premises creates a dangerous condition, or knows or should have known of a dangerous condition that exists on the premises, that person can be liable if someone becomes injured due to that condition. Some examples of these types are cases are falls due to decayed or uneven pavement or concrete, large divots or potholes, defective curbs, slippery substances on a floor or ground and ice. In addition, cases involving falling or jutting objects causing injury are included in this category, as would any other claim of injury due to a dangerous condition on a premises owned by someone else.

Did You Know
If you fall or are otherwise injured at a place of business, you should try to file a report with the company or organization. Be sure to include the details and what it was that caused you to fall and ask for a copy of the report. Get names and phone numbers of any witnesses if possible. These reports can be very important in a legal action.
