What Is Premises Liability?
When someone is injured due to hazards on a poorly maintained property, they can seek compensation from the property owner or leaseholder. Payment can be sought for many injury-related expenses, including medical bills, prescription medication costs, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, and even lost future wages in the event your injury precludes you from working.
There are many circumstances that can result in a premises liability case, including:
- Unnatural accumulations of snow, water, or ice on walkways or stairs
- Uneven stairs
- Obstructions in walkways or protruding into aisles
- Poorly or insufficiently lit grounds
- Insufficient security
- Failure to post hazard or safety signs
- Escalator or elevator-related injuries
If you've been injured on someone else's property, it is worth speaking with a premises liability lawyer familiar with handling these kinds of cases. They will be able to identify if you have grounds for a suit and for what related expenses you may seek compensation.
Time is of the essence to preserve and obtain possible video or photographic evidence of the accident or the defect.
