Premises Liability Lawsuits Lawyer
When a person or a business owns buildings or property, they are responsible for keeping the property safe. Homeowners have an obligation to protect visitors from injury when at their home, and business owners must provide a safe place for their customers. Injuries that occur due to poor maintenance, unsafe conditions or lack of security on property can be reason to pursue a premises liability claim against the property owner.
Premises liability claims are often covered under homeowner’s insurance or business liability insurance. Anyone who is injured due to negligence on property owned by someone else may be able to pursue compensation. If a stairway is faulty and causes an injury accident or a person’s dog bites you, these can be premises liability claims. Even injuries sustained from crimes like attacks or robberies may be covered under premises liability if the business owner did not provide a safe or secure area for their customers.

Lack of lighting or security can also create a danger or risk for injury. Some of the common types of premises liability accidents include:
With premises liability accidents, the claim is based on how the property owner or manager could have prevented the injury. Maintaining structures, providing security and using safety measures can prevent many injuries. When these methods are neglected, a premises liability claim can be used to obtain compensation for injuries.
