Property owners have a responsibility to maintain their land and buildings for business clients, residents, customers, or any other people who have an authorized reason to be on their property. When property owners fail to fulfill their obligation of maintaining their land and buildings, visitors and clients conducting business on the property run the risk of sustaining personal injuries
Slip and fall accidents, defective sidewalks, building code violations, poor construction, and staircase accidents caused by weather-related neglect, shoddy building materials, and unfenced pets are all liabilities for negligent property owners. Such liabilities can have devastating and long-term consequences for innocent victims. Premises liability cases address these liability issues and require property owners to pay retribution by helping victims seek compensation for their losses.

Most Common Types of Premises Liability Cases
Just because you were injured on someone else’s property does not necessarily mean the property owner was negligent, even if the property was in an unsafe condition. To win a premises liability case, you must show that the property owner knew or should reasonably have known that the premises were unsafe or needed maintenance but failed to address the problem. You also must demonstrate that you were an authorized visitor on the property and not trespassing.
