Premises liability arise when a property owner fails to take responsibility for the maintenance and upkeep of their property. Property owners are obligated to exercise reasonable care in keeping aisles, passageways, and floors in a safe condition. Homeowners also have a duty to keep their premises free of hazardous conditions.
Slip, Trip, & Fall
Premise liability cases can include slip, trip, and falls at a commercial establishment. This is often caused by liquids or slippery substances left in an aisle or rest room. Unsafe property conditions such as an extruding pipe and unmarked hazard can also result in a slip, trip, and fall.
If you are injured because a property owner has failed to guarantee a safe environment, save as much evidence as you can – and do so immediately. Photographs are a valuable tool in proving a personal injury claim. Available damages in slip, trip, and fall cases include pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost wages.
Falling down a set of stairs can result in serious injury. Some of the factors that determine the merits of a defective staircase include inadequate surfaces and materials as well as irregular stair risers, treads, and distances. An attorney must consider the design of the stairs, their safety, and whether appropriate building codes and standards have been met.
