8 Premises Liability Issues

Premises liability refers to the responsibility a property owner assumes over the safety of his or her property. Under this responsibility, a property owner or manager can be held legally and financially responsible should an innocent person be injured due to any safety issues. This means that victims who are injured, whether physically or psychologically, might be owed money by the negligent property owner or manager who recklessness caused the harm they have suffered.

8 Common Issues

Maintaining the safety of a property depends on a number of components and following a variety of regulations. Many property owners and/or managers fail to ensure these safety measures are met, resulting in the following common premises liability accidents:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Lead paint poisoning
  • Mercury poisoning
  • Porch collapse / Stair collapse
  • Fires
  • Swimming pool injuries
  • Dog bites
  • Elevator / Escalator injuries

While some of these accidents and injuries can happen without a property owner acting negligently, the risk of them occurring is exponentially greater when property owners and managers fail to ensure their properties are safe for visitors and tenants.
