Premises can be defined as a building and/or the land it is on. Whatever happens on those premises is the responsibility of the owner of the premises and is therefore liable.
Premises Liability cases are also known as slip and fall cases. Claims are based on someone suffering an injury due to slipping, tripping, or falling as a result of a dangerous condition that existed because the owner of the property was negligent in preventing it.
For instance, let’s say you live in an old neighborhood, with old trees. Some of the sidewalk in front of your house is buckled up from the tree’s roots growing underneath. If someone trips over the sidewalk on your premises, you may be liable for that person’s injuries and damages may be awarded as a result.
This is just one example, there are many more situations that can lead to a slip & fall lawsuit. Slippery floors, broken stairs, missing railings, poor lighting, loose carpet, or malfunctioning equipment may cause a slip & fall injury. A premises liability claim may be filed as a result of any condition that causes injury that could have been avoided, had the property owner acted to prevent the injury from occurring
