Premises Liability and Slip and Fall Cases

Premises liability cases, which include slip and fall accidents, are usually the result of a property owner (business or a private homeowner) who is negligent in maintaining their property. Premise liability cases can also include:

  • dog bites
  • slip and fall injuries on the unnatural accumulations of snow and ice
  • dangerous playgrounds
  • underage drinking at a private home
  • uneven sidewalks, driveways and parking lots
  • slip and fall on dirty floor in stores and restaurants
  • firework injuries
  • inadequate security
  • faulty smoke detectors
  • defective electric service
  • swimming pool accidents

When you or your loved one is injured on the premises owned by a business or a private homeowner, it is imperative to document the dangerous condition of the property that caused the injury. Carefully document the dangerous condition by taking photographs or video of the dangerous condition as soon as possible.

If you believe that your injuries resulted from a dangerous condition on someone else's property, you may have the right to compensation.

Important Client Tip:

For some premise liability cases, your lawyer may want to utilize an expert witness, such as an engineer to inspect the premises as soon as possible following your injury. Even if you have taken pictures of the dangerous condition, contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible to determine whether an expert witness should perform an inspection of the scene as soon as possible.
