  • 2. • When you enter someone’s property, you have an expectation of not getting injured. This means that the property owner is responsible for maintaining a safe environment. This is known as "premises liability”.
  • 3. Slip and fall • Slips and falls are the number one cause of hazardous brain injuries and even leading to death in some cases. Inadequate lighting, wet floors and uneven sidewalks are types of negligence that can contribute to slip and fall injuries.
  • 4. Dog bites • When a visitor enters your premises, you should take all the necessary steps to protect them from your pet dogs. In case, if your dog bites him, you may have to pay all his medical bills and even lost wages.
  • 5. Inadequate security • Commercial property owners take reasonable precautions to protect visitors. They should provide adequate lighting, security systems and other safeguards.
  • 6. Sidewalk or road defects • If you were injured due to damaged sidewalk or road in your town, then the local government may be liable for the accident.
  • 7. Determining Premises Liability • The legal status of the visitor: Property owner is not responsible if the trespasser is injured. A person who is invited or licensed to enter the premises of the property is only eligible to file the claim.
  • 8. • The owner of the property is negligent: The owner of the property has a duty of care to take reasonable precautions that will prevent the visitor from slipping and falling.
  • 9. • Whether or not the visitor was careless: If the premises owner created the hazardous circumstances that may lead to serious injuries, then it doesn’t matter whether the visitor is careless or careful.
  • 10. Getting Legal Help for a Premises Liability Injury • If you or a loved one has suffered a premises liability injury, you should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney to ensure that your legal rights are protected and you achieve your rightful compensation.
