Understanding premises liability

The term “premises liability” refers to the area of law that deals with property owners’ legal obligations toward people who enter their property. While premises liability covers a wide range of claims, including animal attacks and improper security, slip and fall accidents are the most common.

Slips, trips and falls can be caused by a number of defects and other hazards, including:

  • Slippery substances on floors
  • Poor or broken lighting
  • Uneven stairs
  • Holes or depressions
  • Raised or worn carpeting
  • Defective escalators or elevators
  • Broken or uneven pavement

Accidents can also occur in a variety of locations, such as grocery stores, shopping malls, office buildings, government offices, restaurants, entertainment and sporting venues, parking lots and garages, construction sites and private homes. Injuries can include bruises, contusions, knee injuries, concussions, paralysis, fractures, spinal injuries and brain injuries.

Establishing a property owner’s liability

To bring a successful premises liability claim, you must be able to show that your injury was caused by an unsafe condition attributed to the property owner’s negligence. In most cases, this involves proving that the property owner had knowledge of the dangerous condition or hazard, or should have had knowledge of the condition, and failed to remedy it within a reasonable amount of time.

Evidence can disappear quickly in a slip and fall accident. To help prove your premises liability claim, it is advisable to document your injuries and the accident scene as quickly as possible. This includes taking pictures of the condition or defect that caused your injury, recording the names of all witnesses and retaining your receipts, medical invoices and any other relevant paperwork.

Obtaining compensation for your damages

Victims of slip and fall accidents and other property dangers are entitled to several types of damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical disability
  • Lost wages

To obtain full and fair compensation, you should consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. Insurance companies know that your medical bills and lost wages are mounting after a serious injury and will often use this as leverage to undervalue your claim and pressure you to sign a release. At Lowther Johnson Attorneys at Law, LLC, our skilled accident lawyers will protect your rights at every stage of the legal process, from settlement negotiation to trial.
