Slip & Fall Accidents

 How Were You Hurt?

Premises liability laws are in place in order to hold property owners responsible for any accidents that take place on their site as a result of negligence. Property, business, and facility owners can all be held directly accountable and responsible for any injuries or illnesses that occur on their premises because of negligence or lack of proper maintenance. Property owners are required to make sure that their property is free from hazards and safe for people of all ages, regardless of the time of day. If this duty has been breached and someone suffers an injury, or worse, as a result, the victim may be able to file a premises liability claim against the property owner. While it is true that the most common premises liability claims involve slip and fall accidents, there are numerous other forms of property liability for which an owner or operator may be charged with. It is important to note that one of the most important aspects of premises liability claims is proving that the property owner was negligent and could have prevented the accident on their grounds through the implementation of better safety measures.
