What is Premises Liability Law?
Premises liability law is the area of law that governs cases involving injuries caused by the negligent actions of property owners. Premises liability laws require property owners to take the necessary steps to detect dangerous conditions, clearly warn others of these hazards, and repair these conditions in a reasonable time period.
There are many different ways in which you can become injured on another person’s property. Therefore, premises liability law covers a broad range of claims, including:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Negligent security
- Dog bites on the property of another
- Amusement park accidents
- Swimming pool drowning
- Stairway accidents
- Improper upkeep of premises
- Malfunctioning elevators and escalators
- Defective handrails
- Cracked, crumbling, or uneven sidewalks
- Injuries caused by inadequate lighting
- Unsafely stacked merchandise in stores
Premises liability law covers injuries caused in places of business as well as in private residences. As long as your injury was caused by the negligent actions of the property owner, property manager, or other person in control of the property, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages.
Proving Fault in Premises Liability Claims
There are three factors which must exist in order to successfully prove fault in a premises liability case:
- The property owner, property manager, or tenant was in possession of the property when you were injured
- Your injury was directly caused by a hazardous condition on the property
- The property owner, property manager, or tenant acted negligently by failing to clearly warn you of the dangerous condition or make the necessary repairs in a timely manner
These cases can be very complicated, and the third element listed above is often difficult to prove. Mr. Barszcz will carefully investigate your case, assessing the condition of the property and the actions taken by the property owner prior to your injury. This thorough preparation will give you the edge you need when attempting to hold the negligent property owner accountable for your damages.
