Premises Liability

Property owners who invite the public in — such as grocery store owners, restaurant owners and retail store owners — have a responsibility to provide a safe environment. When those property owners fail in that duty and someone is injured as a result, the property owner should compensate the person who was hurt. These types of cases are referred to as premises liability cases.

There are two main categories of premises liability cases:

  • Slip-and-fall/trip-and-fall accidents — These are the most common type of premises liability case. When someone slips or trips on something on the floor or ground that should not have been there and he or she is injured, we can help him or her pursue compensation. Examples of causes of these types of accidents include spilled produce, liquid soap, water or other slippery substances. It can also include ice and snow accumulations or gravel or other debris in a parking lot or walkway among other things.
  • Negligent security — When a property owner is aware that there is a heightened security risk for people who come onto his or her property, he or she has a responsibility to take appropriate steps to ensure their safety such as providing proper lighting, security guards or video surveillance.
