What Is Premises Liability?

A subset of personal injury law, premises liability deals with the legal process once someone gets hurt on someone else’s property. Your premises liability lawyer will apply this legal principle with these four elements in place:

  • The defendant is the owner, lessee, controller, or occupier of the property.
  • The plaintiff sustained injuries on that property.
  • The defendant failed to correct a dangerous condition or warn visitors.
  • The defendant’s negligence was the direct cause of the plaintiff’s injuries.

If any one of these is missing, a premises liability attorney cannot make a case. Our team can determine if your claim meets the legal definition. We will work with you each step of the way, whether the case goes to court or a settlement is reached beforehand. 

Common Premises Liability Accident Locations

Premises liability law can apply to accidents in the following areas:

In addition to aircraft crashes, airports can be held liable for bodily injury related to the use, handling, or consumption of item sold by the facility as well as violations of privacy, false arrest, and mental injury damages.

People use Airbnb to find affordable accommodations, but personal injuries can occur at these properties, which could entitle you to monetary compensation. Airbnb host protection insurance covers many types of damages.

Slippery surfaces, structural defects in rides, unsecured lap bars, and design flaws can hold the park liable beyond defenses like assumption of risk and neglect to follow safety procedures.

Common examples include slip and fall accidents, property defects, failure to conduct regular maintenance, and negligent security.

Unsecured materials and equipment, electrical hazards, slippery surfaces, falls from heights, and open trenches are some hazards for workers and passersby, who are at risk with a lack of signage or barriers.

Design/manufacturer defects, missing warning signs, lack of maintenance, faulty wiring, sudden stops/reversals, inadequate handrails, and trip hazards.

Injuries sustained due to an unsafe environment or lack of security, including improper safety signage, dim lighting, and inadequate security staffing.

Owner-operators can be liable for insufficient or improperly maintained lighting and faulty roadway design causing dangerous conditions for traffic and pedestrians.

A government entity can be liable if an employee failed to act accordingly within the scope of their employment or the entity was aware of the dangerous condition.

Poor lighting, defective sidewalks, damaged flooring, electrical hazards, and more are a homeowner’s or landlord’s duty to fix.

Slips, trips, and falls, as well as damaged furniture and food contamination caused by the negligence of a restaurant owner or operator.

Accidents can ranges from slip and fall accidents to parking lot injuries, car accidents, and negligent security leading to rape, assault, or robbery.

Hazards include wet floors, poor lighting, malfunctioning escalators, falling objects, tipping carts, out-of-reach objects, parking lot injuries, and overcrowding.

Common Personal Injury Claims

The most frequently seen accident claims are due to:

In California, dog owners are strictly liable for injuries caused by a dog bite or a plaintiff’s efforts to escape an attack.

A property owner, manager, or landlord can be held liable for criminal activity, preventable assaults, or employee’s harmful or offensive behavior.

Slip and fall accidents can occur on wet floors, broken sidewalks, loose floorboards, insecure carpets, uneven floors, steps, or where fall protection is lacking.

Hidden obstructions, failure to warn of potential dangers and, in the case of clubs or hotels, damaged diving boards, drains, or a lack of lifeguard supervision, life preservers, and safety equipment.

If you’ve experienced an injury due to any of the above, contact a slip and fall lawyer, dog bite attorney, or swimming pool drowning attorney for advice and representation.
