Premises Liability Hazards
There are multiple types of accidents that fall under premises liability law. They can be due to any of the following:
- Slips and falls due to a slippery surface
- Uneven surfaces
- Falling objects
- Poor lighting or negligent security that allows an assault to occur
- Construction site accidents
- Swimming pool accidents or drowning
- Insufficient railings
When a person or business allows another person on their property, they are assuming the liability for that person's well-being. This means that anytime a surface is uneven or slippery, but isn't marked with warning signs, your injuries can be the fault of the property owner. It also means that falling objects, even a tree, are the responsibility of the owner. Also, allowing a person to enter your swimming pool or to jump on your trampoline means that the property owner is assuming responsibility for the safety of that person.
