Premises Liability Law & Your Injury
Many slip and fall accidents are the foundation for
premises liability cases. Dangerous conditions on a person's property may have led to
or caused your accident. Understanding your basic rights under premises
liability law is key to taking the necessary action to protect your future.
Premises liability laws protect individuals who have been injured on another
person's property due to dangerous conditions caused by a property
owner's neglect. Not every injury that occurs outside of your home
is a premises liability case, such as in instances of trespassing. If,
however, the place where your injury occurred had fallen into serious
disrepair and the owner did not take any pains to correct the damage,
or at the very least, warn visitors of the danger, then he or she may
be liable for your injury.
Dangerous property conditions include:
- Broken or missing railings
- Icy sidewalks
- Wet floors
- Missing steps
- Insufficient lighting
- Unfilled pits or holes
- Stumbling blocks
Other slip and fall injuries may involve
nursing home negligence or
medical malpractice. Hospitals and long-term care facilities are required to provide proper
safety measures to ensure the well-being of elderly or disabled patients.
