What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is a legal concept that defines the legal responsibility of property owners for injuries resulting from unsafe conditions due to their negligence. Both public and private property owners are legally obligated to ensure the safety of their premises for visitors.
When they fail in this duty, whether through intention or oversight, it constitutes negligence in the eyes of the law. If an individual sustains injuries on their property as a result of this negligence, they may be held accountable for the associated costs of those injuries.
Examples of Premises Liability Cases
Premises liability cases can stem from a variety of situations. Here are some illustrative instances:
- A slippery surface, like a spill in a store.
- Construction defects, such as exposed electrical wires or holes in concrete pathways.
- Poorly maintained stairways, including broken steps.
- Unmarked and damaged handrails in dimly lit hallways.
- And many more scenarios.
Among the most frequent examples of premises liability cases are:
- Slip and fall accidents.
- Elevator and escalator incidents.
- Swimming pool mishaps.
- Accidents resulting from snow and ice.
- Incidents are caused by defective flooring, hazardous steps, loose handrails, and other maintenance-related issues.
- Cases involving negligent security measures.
Common Premises Liability Injuries

- Head and Brain Injuries
- Back and Neck Injuries
- Dog Bites
- Broken, Fractured, or Dislocated Bones
- Foodborne Illnesses
