Premises liability encompasses injuries arising out of a dangerous condition on someone's property such as injuries caused by slip and falls, inadequate security, construction accidents, fires, explosions, exposure to hazardous materials, animal bites, and workplace injuries to name a few.
Owners and occupiers of property have a duty to protect persons lawfully on their property from injuries resulting from hazardous conditions that the owner or occupier knew or should have known existed. When owners or occupiers of property act irresponsibly by failing to adequately protect persons from such hazards, they should be held accountable.
A thorough understanding of the ever-changing and fact-specific law regarding the various and numerous incidents that result in premises liability is essential to successful legal representation. For example, it is usually easy to determine who is the owner of the premises. However, the situation often becomes less clear when determining the the duty that owner owes to others on his or property.
This is because the law distinguishes between three classes of people who come onto another's property. These three classes are invitees, licensees, and trespassers. Accordingly, the owner of the property is obligated by law to take different levels of precaution for each classification of persons on the property.
Over the years, I have handled numerous premises liability cases and we have a full and complex understanding of the law in this area. If you were injured while on someone else's property, please contact me for a free evaluation of your case.
