Contact us today for an initial consultation, to discuss the circumstances of the accident and determine how much your case is worth.

Do I have grounds for a premises liability claim?

The question which determines whether you can file a claim for premises liability is, "Did the property owner know about the conditions which caused the accident?" If the proprietor knew, or reasonably ought to have known, about the hazard, and failed to take action either to remove the danger or to install signs or security measures to prevent it, you should have grounds for a claim. You cannot hold the owner accountable for any and all mishaps occurring on the property, but if the owner was negligent, you have a right to demand compensation.

What are some examples of premises liability?

Premises liability can arise in a wide variety of circumstances, but slip and fall accidents are among the most widely recognized. These can occur in grocery stores and restaurants where spills on the floor have not been cleaned, as well as on cracked sidewalks, poorly lit stairways and cluttered walkways, or anywhere else an individual falls throughout no fault of his/her own. Drowning accidents in swimming pools are another prevalent example, as these can often be prevented by installing a four-sided fence and self-latching gate to keep unsupervised children out of the pool. It is even possible under some circumstances to sue a landlord or hotel owner for a lack of security measures which has allowed an assault or rape to occur.
