Negligent and hazardous conditions that fall under the umbrella of premises liability may include defects, areas that are in need of maintenance or cleanup, or some other type of hazard that has been overlooked. It is possible that the businesses, restaurant, retail store, or property owner has been careless. However, this is not always the case. In a premises liability case, it must be proven the the property owner was previously aware of the condition, had been warned and failed to fix the issue, or failed to use reasonable care and maintenance to keep the area safe for others. The list below provides some scenarios for a premises liability cases, but there are far more situations that could also fall under this umbrella. Liability cases due to a product malfunction or defect are different, and fall under the category of product liability.

Slips, Trips & Falls
Slips, trips and falls on someone else’s property are common premises liability cases, but there is truly a vast range of potential cases. Business owners must take every step necessary to keep customers safe, prevent defective conditions, and pose no threat of injury to visitors. If there is a hazard present, it must be clearly posted with a sign to prevent an accident. When they fail to do what is necessary to reasonably keep others safe from injury, we may be able to hold them responsible for their negligence. However, we must also show that you were authorized to be there, and that you didn’t act in an irresponsible or careless manner to have provoked the injury.
