Grounds for a Premises Liability Action

Grounds for a Premises Liability Action

Property ownership comes with a host of responsibilities. For example, many municipalities require that a property be properly maintained so that it does not negatively affect the safety or overall appearance of the neighborhood. But more pressing is the necessity that guests, whether expressly invited or not, should not be subject to accidental injury attributable to the negligence of the property owner.

If you have suffered an injury while on another party’s property, then it may be in your best interest to file a lawsuit seeking financial compensation. To determine whether a legal action may be appropriate in your case, it would be useful to consult directly with a skilled and experienced attorney.

The nature of dangers that one might encounter on another’s property depends upon many different factors. The intended purpose of a structure, the number of people it is expected to accommodate, and the geographical area in which it is located are just a few of the influential details.

Under premises liability law, however, the property owner is presumed to bear responsibility for injuries regardless of the cause. Some examples of potential bases for a premises liability lawsuit include:

  • Roof collapse
  • Stairway collapse
  • Floor collapse
  • Inadequate security
  • Fire related injuries
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Uneven pavement or flooring

Filing lawsuits allows victims of negligence to win compensation for the losses they have faced. This compensation may include repayment for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages due to missed work, and more.
