Every year, many people are seriously injured while in someone else's home or place of business. Many people commonly associate premises liability with “slip and fall” cases, but premises liability cases also include a wide range of situations from dangerous conditions to unsafe methods of operation to inadequate security where liability may be imposed on the owner of the premises where the injury occurred.
Premises liability laws make the person who is in possession of land or premises liable for injuries suffered by persons who visit the premises. While some premises cases appear simple, knowing the law is essential. In some states the law is set up to favor the premises owner not the victim. In other states, the law favors the one who is injured. It’s important to contact a local attorney with knowledge of the laws in your area for specific questions, but to help you and your family develop a general understanding of Property Owners Liability, InjuryBoard has put together this series of articles.
