What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability refers to the legal responsibility of a property owner or occupier to maintain a safe environment for individuals who enter the premises. When someone is injured or suffers harm due to hazardous conditions or negligence on a property, they may have the right to seek compensation for their injuries through a premises liability claim.
Premises liability claims are often filed against landlords, property managers, and homeowners associations. In many cases, these parties are responsible for ensuring that their properties are safe for tenants and homeowners to use.
How Do Premises Liability Lawsuits Work?
Premises liability cases are similar to other personal injury lawsuits. The main difference is that premises liability cases are brought against property owners and occupiers for unsafe conditions on their property.
Property owners, whether residential, commercial, or public, have a duty to exercise reasonable care in maintaining their premises and ensuring that visitors or guests are reasonably protected from known or foreseeable dangers. This duty includes regular inspections, repairs, and the implementation of necessary safety measures to prevent accidents or injuries.
To win your case, you will need to prove that:
- The property owner or occupier owed you a duty of care
- The property owner or occupier breached that duty of care
- You were injured as a result of the property owner or occupier's breach of duty of care
- You sustained serious injuries or your injuries resulted in wrongful death
In most cases, you will need to prove that the property owner or occupier knew or should have known about the unsafe condition but failed to fix it or warn others about it.
