Common Concerns in Premises Liability Cases

One of the true bedrock principles of the American legal system is that people and other entities such as companies and unions are fundamentally responsible for the consequences of their actions and behaviors. On one hand, this permits them to claim credit when they accomplish good. But it also means that they are perceived to be liable for damages resulting from negligent, reckless, or malicious deeds. Premises liability law is concerned with the obligation of property owners to ensure that the legally defined “guests” who enter the premises are not caused undue harm. The term guests may apply in varying situations to friends, customers, service personnel, and even conceivably to trespassers.

If you have sustained injuries while on another party’s property due to negligent maintenance of factors within the owner’s realm of control, then it may be appropriate to consider filing a lawsuit to recover financial compensation.

Causes for a Premises Liability Case

The dangers that may potentially arise on a property are highly variable and dependent upon the intended use of a structure and grounds among other things. Elevator accidents, for example, are not a threat in one-story buildings. A quick overview of typical causes for a premises liability case might include the following:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Stair collapse
  • Porch collapse
  • Fires
  • Electrical shocks
  • Toxic exposures
  • Scalding water burns
