Premises liability is an area of the law dealing with accidents that occur on a property owned by someone other than the accident victim.
Property owners, managers, landlords, business establishments, government entities, and homeowners can be held liable when another party suffers an injury on their property. To prove negligence or wrongdoing, the injured party must show that defendant failed to properly maintain the property, allowed an unsafe or dangerous risk to develop, or otherwise failed to protect residents, employees and visitors from injury. Premises liability is the term for the legal action that an injured party can take against the responsible party for any damages occurring on their property. Such legal cases can be complicated but rest assured that our team of experienced attorneys are well experienced in premise liability matters.
Although many premises liability cases involve renters versus their landlords or apartment managers, there are a variety of other instances that fall under this legal category as well. An owner of any premises is bound by the law to protect all people who go onto their property lawfully including renters, tenants, employees, service and maintenance people, visitors, and other people on the premises lawfully.
In order to successfully litigate a Premises Liability case two important factors must be taken into consideration:
When it comes to premises liability, children are a protected class. This means that when a child suffers injury on another’s property, a special set of laws will apply to the case. A standard called “attractive nuisance” is often applied to premises liability cases involving children. Owners of any property that may be of interest to children must take special care to ensure the property is safe. Attractive nuisances include such potentially dangerous areas as construction sites, equipment, parking storage units, and more. These areas must be in full compliance with safety codes and other premises liability laws.
Owners are also liable for the safety and protection of their neighbors and anyone else living in or walking through surrounding areas of their property. In many cases, the owner of a property can be held liable for assaults that occur on their property if they fail to keep the area safe and protected. Faulty locks, windows, doors, gates, broken lights or any other neglected defect are the owner’s responsibility to repair and keep in good order.
Premises liability laws are an important aspect of our society in the United States. Property owners must take responsibility for the failure to maintain their property to prevent causing injury to others.
