Premises liability laws hold property owners and/or operators responsible for any accidents that occur or injuries that are sustained on their site. While the most common premises liability claims involve slip and fall accidents, there are numerous other forms of property liability for which an owner or operator can be charged. One of the key elements to premises liability claims is proving that the property owner or operator could have prevented an accident or incident on their grounds through better safety measures.
If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in an accident that occurred on someone else’s property and you feel the owner/operator of that property could have made the premises safer, you have the right to take legal action.

- Slipping on wet or icy surfaces
- Tripping over uneven flooring
- Accidents on construction sites
- Injuries sustained from animals (for example, dog bites)
- Willful neglect on the part of the owner, manager or other third party
- No markings or warning announcing potentially unsafe conditions
- Swimming pool injuries
- Fires and explosions
- Lead poisoning
- Exposure to hazardous materials
- Inadequate security
Premises Liability and Legal Help
Determining liability in a slip and fall accident or other premises liability case is complex and can be difficult to prove. Laws vary depending on the state that you live in and liability is determined based on the injured party’s status—that is, whether that person was legally on the property. If you or a loved one has suffered injury or death on someone else’s property through no fault of your own, it is important to seek the help of a qualified attorney who has the experience and knowledge to investigate the circumstances surrounding your case, protect your legal rights and interests and help you get the compensation you deserve for your losses.
