Premises liability encompasses all manner of falling or injuries that occurs on someone else’s property. For example, if the entrance to a store was icy and the employee failed to put down salt, the customer may have slipped and fallen on the ice. That customer has cause to file a premises liability lawsuit. Other accidents that may qualify as premises liability include slipping and falling on a slippery floor, trip-and-fall accidents, ceiling falls, electrocutions, poisoning and asphyxiation from chemicals, and various other causes.

Injuries caused by negligent property ownership can lead to a lawsuit against the property owner. Whether you are a visitor to a restaurant or shop or residential building, you may be eligible to file a premises liability lawsuit. You can also sue for injuries caused by defective equipment such as hand rails on steps. 

A premises liability lawsuit may involve any number of scenarios, including the assault of a visitor or employee, the failure to provide adequate security, or the release of toxic fumes or chemicals. 

If you were injured in a premises liability accident, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Prompt medical attention can help you recover more quickly from the injuries caused by negligence. Visiting a doctor as soon as possible also provides a medical claim that will benefit your liability claim. Be sure to gather as much evidence on the incident as possible.

Leased Properties and Shared Premises?

Suppose you’ve suffered an injury on a property you are leasing. You may be eligible to file a claim for damages. While landowners aren’t responsible for every accident, they have a legal responsibility to make their property is as safe as possible. If they fail to do so, they could be held legally responsible for the injuries and medical bills and any lost wages that result.

Here is how a lawsuit against a landlord goes:

First, the injured party must prove that the defendant was negligent in causing the injury. The injured person must provide medical records and testimony from an expert witness. In addition, the plaintiff must show that the defendant failed to follow the standard of care. The standard of care of the premises is essential in determining whether the injuries are compensable or not. Punitive damages, designed to punish a defendant for egregious behavior, may also be awarded.
