Factors in Premises Liability Accidents
Premises liability lawsuits often stem from slip-and-fall accidents, in which negligent maintenance contributes to unsafe conditions that can result in personal injury. Common factors in premises liability cases include:
- Inadequate security
- Wet, icy or otherwise slippery walkways
- Inadequate lighting
- Inaccessible emergency exits
- Lack of warning of potential hazards
- Unsafe handrails, guardrails or stairs
In premises liability lawsuits, the injured person must establish that the property was dangerous, that the designated party responsible for maintaining the property knew or should have know about the dangers, and that the responsible party failed to correct or warn about the dangers in a reasonable period of time.
Protecting Your Rights After a Premises Liability Injury
If you were hurt on public or private property and you believe your injury was the result of negligent security, inadequate maintenance or failure to warn of risks, it’s important to document as much about the circumstances of your injury as possible, including:
- Photos or video of the location in which your injury occurred
- Photos or video of your injuries
- Contact information for any witnesses
