Premises liability generally refers to injuries that occur to victims as a result of unsafe conditions of another’s property. A property owner or occupant has a duty to maintain that property in a safe condition. The types of premises liability cases are almost limitless. They include accidents involving slip and falls, swimming pool accidents, broken glass, faulty store displays, negligent security, faulty home construction, and dog attacks – basically any injury that occurs on someone’s property as a result of an unsafe condition.
An owner or occupier of property must use reasonable care to inspect the property and discover any unsafe conditions. The owner/occupier has a duty to correct, repair, replace, or give adequate warning of any condition that could reasonably be expected to harm others. For example, a guest in a home is owed a duty of care. The homeowner is under a duty to fix uneven stairs, or to gate a swimming pool area to prevent injury to their guests.
Negligent premises conditions can exist in just about every type of building, including homes, apartment complexes, theaters, malls, commercial buildings, etc. Premises liability also covers adjacent properties, such as sidewalks. If multiple parties have the right to control the property, there may be multiple parties who are liable for an injury.
