Each year, an astounding number of people end up in emergency rooms due to accidents, with many of these occurring on another's property.

Premises Liability Cases
A number of scenarios are included under the umbrella of premises liability law. While proving negligence is essential and requires the experience of a reputable premises liability lawyer, here are some examples of potential premises liability claims:
- Slip and fall accidents: When an individual or guest to a property slips and falls, they may experience serious neck, back or joint injuries, requiring ongoing therapy or even surgery.
- Elevators, escalators or automatic doors: When an elevator, escalator or automatic door located on a business or commercial property contains a defective part or fails to work properly, it might be due to failed inspection or lack of maintenance. Even so, injuries sustained could be severe.
- Poorly maintained home or business properties: If visitors or guests fall due to broken stairs, faulty flooring, weak balconies or slick surfaces, home or business owners could be held liable for their injuries.
- Insufficient security: When a remote area of a business parking lot does not have security surveillance or adequate lighting, individuals might become the victim of a crime, causing serious injury.
- Swimming pools: Whether at a home or commercial property, if an individual becomes injured or drowns in a swimming pool and there was no supervision or warnings posted, the owner might be liable for the person's injuries or death.
For victims injured on another's property, evidence proving that the home or business owner is responsible may seem overwhelming. Yet, the reality is that premises liability cases are difficult to prove, as questions about whether the property posed a legitimate risk to the person are addressed. What's more is that some may question if the injured individual was simply not paying attention to their surroundings. Given these reasons, it is wise to seek legal guidance regarding your premises liability claim.
