Premises liability laws are sometimes also known as Slip and Fall laws and are in place in order to hold property owners responsible for any accidents that take place on their property as a result of negligence or a preventable situation. Homeowners, property, business, and facility owners can all be held directly accountable and responsible for any injuries that occur on their property because of negligence or lack of proper maintenance as well as, lack of posted warnings by the property owner.
Property owners are required to make sure that their property is free from hazards and safe for people of all ages, regardless of the time of day. If this responsibility has not been met and someone suffers an injury as a result, the victim may be able to file a premises liability claim against the property owner.
It is important to note that one of the most important aspects of premises liability claims is proving that the property owner was negligent and could have prevented the accident on their grounds through the implementation of better safety measures or proper maintenance.
While it is true that the most common premises liability claims involve slip and fall accidents, there are numerous other forms of property liability for which a property owner, homeowner or operator may be charged with.
Premises liability claims can frequently involve businesses, corporations, and entities with seemingly limitless resources, it is imperative that you have a qualified premises liability attorney on your side when you wish to pursue legal action.
