A premises liability lawsuit is a type of personal injury case wherein an individual is injured or harmed on the property of another individual, business owner, or organization. One example of premises liability case would be a slip and fall injury incurred in a public place where the floor is wet, causing a dangerous condition, and the area is not blocked off or marked properly.

Premises liability injuries are not limited to slip and fall accidents, however. They can happen at any time, in any place where due diligence was not exercised by the property owner in order to keep people safe from harm. Here are few examples:

  • Amusement park accidents
  • Animal attacks
  • Defective entrances/exits in stores
  • Faulty elevators/escalators
  • Food poisoning
  • Inadequate security leading to assault
  • Swimming pool accidents

In addition to being able to file a claim for your own injuries in a premises liability case, you may be able to file a claim if an accident resulting from an unsafe condition has resulted in the fatality of a loved one. Wrongful death cases allow the next of kin to recover economic damages as well as compensation for loss of consortium, pain and suffering for your loved one if they suffered before they passed, and other various damages.
