It is the responsibility of businesses, government organizations or private home owners to ensure that their premises are kept safe for the general public and free from hazards. There are many different types of hazardous conditions that can come about from negligence, many which wind up in premises liability lawsuits to compensate for injuries.

Types of Premises Liability

Some of the more common types of negligence that can result in injury are as follows:

  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Poorly maintained stairways
  • Poor lighting in walkway areas
  • Poorly maintained elevators
  • Hazardous construction sites
  • Poorly maintained electrical functions
  • Toxic Fumes from gas or chemicals
  • Security failures
  • Swimming pool negligence resulting in accidents
  • Lack of protection from falling objects

Any of the above points can result in a person getting seriously injured and if you find yourself in a situation where you have sustained an injury due to someone else's negligence then you need to consult with an attorney.
