What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is when a property owner is negligent in their duty to prevent an avoidable accident and, therefore, an individual is harmed as a result. Every indivdual has to follow the law when visiting public places, but what about the property owner’s legal responsibilities when we are visitors?

Premises liability law dictates that these property hosts are required to maintain their property to keep it clean, hazard-free, and safe. Furthermore, this extends to not only consistently inspecting and fixing hazards, but also providing sufficient warning of any of these hazards to guests. If the owner fails to do any of these things, they have violated a duty of care they owe to you.

Examples of potentially liable parties include:

  • Property Owners – The owners of public businesses and entities must maintain the upkeep of their property and they are responsible for the safety of people visiting it. This can also apply to cases in which the property owner isn’t present and has contracted the use of the property to another operator.
  • Property Operators – This refers to people renting a public property to run a daily business; therefore, that particular business or entity has a duty of care to the patrons that visit, even if they don’t own the property. For example, restaurant operators that rent a property for their food business are still responsible for the safety of their guests.
  • Private Residences – In some cases, your premises liability claim may involve a private residence. For example, a neighbor may have invited you onto their property which turned out to be dangerous and you suffered an injury. In these types of cases, you are allowed to seek fair compensation.

Unfortunately, there are countless dangers that can happen on a property and, as a result, The Hayden Law Firm has seen a wide array of devastating injuries to innocent people including burns, broken bones, lacerations, and other bodily injuries.

Types of Premises Liability Cases We Handle

The unfortunate reality is that most premises liability accidents are usually preventable. A simple “Caution” sign can help you avoid paying thousands of dollars in medical expenses, rehabilitation, and lost wages. We want to help you get the coverage you need to pay for these expenses.

Premises liability accidents can occur at many different types of establishments and for many different reasons. The most common types of cases we handle include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Dog bites and attacks
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Hotel accidents
  • Restaurant accidents
  • Foodborne illnesses
  • Fires or electrocution
  • Infections
  • Negligent security
  • Occupational exposure
  • Injuries as a result of broken equipment, inadequate lighting, inadequate snow and ice removal, etc.
