Dealing with the aftermath of an injury can be very stressful, but it can be even more complex and difficult when an injury occurred because of someone else's negligence. Many injury cases involve liability on the part of a property owner who did not take the proper steps to make sure visitors to their property were safe from harm. Those who are injured while on someone else's property may struggle to determine who was responsible and how they will cover the costs related to their injury. In these situations, victims will want to work with a personal injury attorney who is experienced in premises liability cases.

Legal Help With Premises Liability Cases

Property owners are required to ensure that their premises are safe for visitors, customers, or those who are legally allowed to use their property, and they may be held liable for injuries that occur because they did not meet these requirements. Premises liability may apply to the owner of private property or a tenant who operates a business on property owned by someone else. Some types of cases where victims may be able to pursue repayment for their injuries include:

  • Slip, trip, and falls - Wet floors, slippery walking surfaces, damaged sidewalks or parking lots, and other tripping hazards can cause a person to fall down and suffer injuries such as fractured bones, traumatic brain injuries, dislocated joints, serious bruises, or internal injuries.
  • Dog bites - A dog's owner may be held liable for injuries inflicted when an animal bites or attacks someone without being provoked. These attacks can result in injuries such as puncture wounds, broken bones, amputations, nerve damage, infections, fall injuries, and emotional trauma.
  • Malls and stores - Customers can suffer serious injuries due to hazards at retail stores or shopping malls, such as malfunctioning elevators or escalators, falling merchandise, damaged railings or stairwells, inadequate lighting in parking lots or garages, or overcrowding.
  • Restaurants and bars - Patrons at these establishments may be injured due to hazards on the property, food poisoning, or negligent security. A bar or restaurant may also be held liable if it served alcohol to a patron who injured someone due to their intoxication, including in cases involving drunk driving.
  • Bar fights - Disagreements or arguments between patrons at a bar or nightclub can turn into physical confrontations, which can result in injuries to people involved in fights or bystanders. An establishment may be held liable if it did not provide adequate security or take steps to prevent injuries to customers in bar fights.
  • College campus assaults and accidents - Students or faculty at colleges and universities may be injured by hazards on campus, hazing, physical or sexual assault, fires in dormitories or other buildings, lab accidents, or sports injuries.
  • Daycares, schools, and childcare facilities - Injuries may take place at a school or daycare center due to inadequate supervision or hiring of unqualified staff members. Children may suffer harm because of assault or abuse, bullying, playground injuries, sports injuries, or bus accidents.
  • Swimming pool accidents - Drownings can occur at public or private pools due to inadequate supervision or negligent security. People may also suffer injuries because of malfunctioning equipment or exposure to infectious diseases or toxic chemicals.
