When An Unsafe Condition Causes An Injury
Not too many people understand what “premises liability” means. In short, it means that if you are hurt because someone left a mess or didn’t control their dog, they or their insurance company is responsible for paying for your medical bills and lost wages and possibly other damages.

Examples Of Premises Liability
People get hurt every day. However, just because someone got hurt does not necessarily mean they have a premises liability case. It must be proved that the property owner was negligent. On the other hand, there are instances of negligence that are more common for premises liability.
- Slip-and-falls, typically due to spills that were not cleaned up
- Defective materials or inadequate maintenance, usually on flooring or stairs
- Elevator or escalator mishaps
- Dog bites or pet animal attacks
- Swimming pool drownings or injuries
Any time a property owner is aware of an unsafe condition but does not take action to fix it, it’s likely that they are negligent and then liable for the injuries that happen. This can extend to include water and fire and even carnival rides, amusement parks or entertainment complexes. An attorney who works in personal injury can explain how negligence and liability relate to your specific injury.
