Types of Premises Liability Cases
Premises liability claims are centered around a dangerous hazard on a piece
of property that should not have been there had reasonable safety efforts
had been taken. If it can be determined that the property controller was
negligent in their duty to protect visitors and guests, then the argument
can be made that they should pay for the injured party’s damages.
For example: I retail store manager that does not clean up a spill near the cash registers
after one guest already pointed it out to them is being negligent in their
duty to appropriately react to dangers, even those they did not directly cause.
Premises liability cases usually originate from one of the following:
Slip and fall injuries: Spills, loose carpeting, wires and cords across walkways, and more can
all cause perhaps the most common type of premises liability claims: slip
and fall injuries.
Dog bite and animal attacks: A homeowner has the right to own and raise a pet to their liking, but any
welcome guests to that home have the right to be protected from that pet’s
Inefficient security: If there is reason to believe that a location requires security to protect
its patrons, the lack of that necessary security personnel could be indicative
of a property owner’s negligence.
Toxic exposure: Many retail and office locations use strong chemical cleaners on a routine
basis. When handled incorrectly, these same cleaners can put visitors
at undue risk of toxic exposure.
