Common Types Of Premises Liability Accidents
When you go to the bank, grocery store, or even to a friend’s home, you should be able to expect to be relatively safe. When a person is hurt due to a hazard, it is generally due to negligence or lack of maintenance.
A few of the most common types of premises liability cases I represent are:
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Negligent security
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Swimming pool accidents
- Broken sidewalk or staircases
- Missing or broken railings
How Do You Prove Premises Liability?
In order to win a premises liability claim, you need to be able to prove the following:
(1) That you were lawfully on the property or that the owner of the property knew you were trespassing
(2) That the owner knew or should have known about the safety issue and should have taken steps to prevent your injury
(3) That the property owner’s negligence caused your injury
Premises liability claims can be difficult. If you hire me to represent you, I will work to prove that the property owner was aware of a hazard and failed to fix it or did not provide reasonable upkeep, leading to your injuries.
