Accidents Leading to Premises Liability Claims
Premises liability claims arise from accidents that happen on another party’s property. These accidents commonly happen in stores, malls, hotels, resorts, apartment or condo complexes, parking garages, restaurants, offices, hospitals, and many other locations. Some accidents that might lead to a premises liability claim include the following:
- Slip and falls
- Trip and falls
- Falls on stairs
- Falls from high places
- Getting hit by falling objects
- Electrical accidents
- Fire-related accidents
- Animal attacks
- Violence due to inadequate security
- Gym and fitness center accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Elevator or escalator accidents
- Toxic exposure
All of the above can result in serious injuries, and victims should always find out whether someone might be held liable for their losses.
Liability for Your Losses
Losses from serious injuries can be extensive, and they may include medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. In many situations, accident victims may have the right to seek compensation for all of these losses from a liable party.
Property and business owners have a legal duty to keep their premises in safe conditions for customers and visitors. When they allow hazards or dangerous conditions to exist and someone gets hurt, the negligent party should be held responsible for the injuries and losses of accident victims. Some examples of hazards that may indicate negligence include:
- Wet and slippery floors
- Worn or uneven flooring
- Steep or narrow stairs
- Broken railings
- Pools or spas that do not comply with safety codes
- Dangerous wiring or electric systems
- Not warning visitors of possible hazards
- Not providing necessary security
A skilled attorney can evaluate what happened in your accident and identify whether a party was negligent. Our firm can prepare and file the necessary insurance claims and will fight for full compensation to cover all of your losses. We can file a premises liability lawsuit in civil court when needed to seek the maximum payment you deserve.
