Premises liability refers to the liability of the property owner for injuries that occur on the property. This may involve a single property owner or a business owner. Injuries covered by premises liability may range from cuts and bruises to broken bones, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, or even death.

Possible premises liability injuries include:
The causes of injuries that fall under premises liability go back to the negligence of the owner. It may be the owner’s negligence in tightening a loose floor board, securing a high shelf, or fixing a broken chair. Premises liability can be applied to a negligent homeowner or a negligent landlord or property owner. Even if a property is empty or abandoned, if the owner is negligent in ensuring the property is secure, that owner may be liable for any injuries occurring on the property.
For companies, although the types of injuries may vary, the base cause is still the same. The business owner’s negligence in a premises liability case is what makes the case. This includes any type of business from a large box store to a daycare center. A failure to ensure that the premises are safe and secure may result in a premises liability lawsuit. This may even apply to violent crimes. If an individual is victimized as a result of the property owner failing to ensure the safety of the property, then the owner is liable for the victim’s injuries.
If you or someone you love has been injured while on someone else’s property due to the negligence of the individual owner or company, our personal injury lawyers will be able to help you get the compensation you deserve. Contact a personal injury lawyer in your area to get started.
