Premises liability is the duty of an owner or occupier of real estate to protect people on their property from dangerous conditions and defects in the property. If they fail to provide a safe environment and a visitor suffers an injury or dies, they are liable. Premises liability lawyers at Burnetti, P.A. hold negligent property owners accountable and fight for victims injured by negligent maintenance or disregard for safety.
Premises Liability Claims
Slip and fall accidents, negligent security, and poorly maintained property all fall under premises liability laws. While individuals have a personal duty to watch where they are walking and understand that there may be obstructions in aisles, property owners have a responsibility to keep their establishments safe. Establishments may include a home, store, shop, office, restaurant, hotel or commercial building. If you have been injured or lost a loved one to any of the following circumstances, you may be eligible to file a premises liability claim for monetary compensation:
- Slip and falls
- Trip and falls
- Negligent security
- Tripping over a loose carpet
- Falling in potholes
- Being hit by falling merchandise, shelves, lights or other objects
- Tripping or falling on stairs that violate building codes
- Being victimized in a crime, such as a robber at an ATM, due to inadequate security
- Having a child injured due to a daycare’s negligence
