Premises liability refers to accidents or injuries that occur on the property of someone else, usually due to hazardous conditions or negligent security. Injuries that fall in this category can be sustained in public or private places, including buildings, construction sites, and parking lots. Property owners are required to provide protection for those permitted on their land, and their failure to do so could constitute a valid personal injury claim on behalf of injured victims.
Unsafe property conditions can lead to very serious injuries or even death. Those who sustain injuries because of negligence or wrongful actions of property owners or operators may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, and other damages under the law.
In some premises liability cases, property owners may also be considered liable if a person enters their property without authorization which may occur if a property is left abandoned or inadequately maintained, and hazards are present that put small children or others at risk.
