Premises liability refers to accidents and injuries which occur on the property of another. This can include a hotel, apartment complex, home, mall, retail store, amusement park or any other similar location.
Property owners have a legal responsibility to those who use or visit their property. This responsibility includes maintaining the grounds and ensuring that it is free from hazardous situations (broken stairs, uneven walkways, spills, slippery areas, etc.) If there is a hazard, the property owner should post a sign warning of the potential danger and take action to remedy the situation.
An individual who has been injured on another's property may be able to work with a personal injury lawyer in order to take legal action and seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and emotional pain and anguish.
