Premises Liability

Landowners, shop or business owners have a duty to keep their property free from unsafe conditions. If they know their property is unsafe, property owners have a duty to warn people who do not know about those unsafe zones.

You can sue the property owner for your serious injuries if you did not know, or were not warned about dangerous risks such as:

  • Broken steps
  • Cracks in the sidewalk
  • Unlit hallways
  • Water or oil on the floor
  • Falling debris
  • Animal attacks


Common types of premises liability accidents

  • Amusement park accidents
  • Animal bites
  • Apartment complex accidents
  • Building collapse
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Construction site accidents
  • Defective premises
  • Electrocutions
  • Elevator/escalator accidents
  • Equipment malfunctions
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Falling objects
  • Fires
  • Improper or poor lighting
  • Lead poisoning
