Premises Liability Injury Law

What are Premises Liability Injuries?

Premises liability law states that property owners must be held responsible for any accidents or injuries that occur on their property. This includes houses, businesses, work sites, land, etc. Premises liability injuries can occur from a variety of accidents or circumstances such as:

  • Slipping, tripping, or falling due to wet, icy, or uneven surfaces
  • Injuries from animals on the property
  • Faulty machinery or tools
  • Exposure to hazardous chemicals or poison
  • Fires
  • Electrical accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Lack of security
  • Negligence from the property owner

Premises liability injuries can be minor or extremely serious. Injuries can include broken bones, cancer, poisoning, nervous system damage, burns, brain trauma, dismemberment, or death. There are an infinite number of possible accidents and injuries that can occur on someone's property, and no matter the severity, they all can cause life-changing consequences and damages. Aside from the injury itself, a property accident can lead to lost income, the inability to work, and high medical expenses. In premises liability law, the property owner or operator is responsible for these injuries and resulting consequences. The property owner could have and should have taken the necessary precautions to prevent any such premises liability injuries or accidents from happening. It is their responsibility to keep their property safe for others.

If someone is hurt or killed on someone else's property, and the property owner or operator could have done something to prevent the accident from happening, the victim can take legal action for their premises liability injury. The injuries sustained on the grounds of another may be orthopedic injuries, central nervous system damage, cancer or other diseases resulting from chemicals, burns, dismemberment, brain trauma, broken bones, death, etc. The possibilities of premises liability injuries are endless, and no matter what the injury is, it may cause life-changing consequences. Medical bills, lost income, and other related expenses can be extremely high and the victim may never recover or be the same again. As such, premises liability injuries are taken very seriously.
