Routine trips to the supermarket, the department store, or even the homes of our children’s friends are not typically considered to be potentially dangerous. But when property owners fail to maintain their premises in a safe manner, serious injuries can and do occur. Under premises liability law, a property owner may be held legally responsible for accidents or injuries to visitors if the owner’s negligence led to the injury. Examples of conditions and accidents that often lead to premises liability claims include slip and falls, trip and falls, poor building maintenance, dog bites, uneven surfaces, inadequate security, falling objects, broken stairs and accumulations of snow or ice.
A wide range of injuries may occur as a result of a property owner’s negligence. These include head injuries, nerve damage, sprains, broken bones, severe cuts and bruises, dislocated joints, loss of limb and other serious injuries. In the event of an injury suffered on a commercial or private property owner’s premises, it is crucial to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer for assistance.
