Your premises-liability attorney at Parris Law will protect your rights and help you recover just compensation for your injuries or damages as a result of proven negligence on the part of the property owner.
To build a premises-liability case, the plaintiff needs to prove one of the following points:
- The property owner or manager created the condition that led to injury.
- The property owner or manager knew of the dangerous condition but failed to prevent it.
- The dangerous condition existed for long enough that a reasonable person should have been aware of and repaired it.
Common Grounds for Premises-Liability Claims
Some of the most common grounds for premises-liability claims include:
- Unmarked wet floors
- Uneven walking surfaces, such as floors, carpets or sidewalks
- Unmarked or broken steps or stairs
- Faulty construction
- Unsafe food products
- Insufficient security
- Poor lighting
- Lack of warning signs for any dangerous conditions or areas
- Workplace injuries, including construction accidents
Slip-and-fall accidents are the most common premises-liability cases our attorneys handle. These personal-injury accidents are suitable grounds for a lawsuit when they are caused by unsafe conditions on someone else’s property.
A property owner is legally responsible for adhering to building codes and for maintaining his or her property so that it does not pose a risk to others. Property owners can be held responsible for injuries caused by hazards indoors (such as structural defects, uneven or slippery flooring and poor lighting) or outdoors (weather-related hazards, holes and hard-to-see obstacles).
