What is Premises Liability?

At its core, premises liability revolves around the duty of property owners to ensure their property is safe for visitors.

This applies to various types of properties, including commercial, residential, and public spaces. The extent of liability and the expectations for safety can vary depending on the nature of the property and the status of the visitor.

Common Causes of Premises Liability Claims:

Premises liability claims commonly arise from situations like slip and fall accidents, inadequate maintenance, defective conditions, or insufficient security. For example, a customer slipping on a wet floor in a supermarket or a tenant being injured due to a broken stairway railing in an apartment complex are scenarios that could potentially lead to such claims.

Understanding The Legal Process:

A premises liability lawsuit typically begins with filing a claim and may proceed to court if a settlement isn’t reached. In these cases, evidence plays a crucial role. This can include accident reports, statements from witnesses, and photographs of the accident scene, which collectively help in establishing the facts of the case.

Property Owner Responsibilities:

Property owners are expected to maintain a reasonably safe environment. This involves regular maintenance, prompt repairs, and adequate security measures. The failure to meet these responsibilities can be seen as negligence, forming the basis for a premises liability lawsuit.

Victim’s Responsibilities:

In premises liability cases, the injured party’s own actions are also considered. Comparative negligence examines the role of the injured party in the accident. For instance, if an individual is injured while trespassing, this could significantly impact the case.

Statute of Limitations:

The statute of limitations is a critical aspect of premises liability lawsuits. This law sets a deadline for filing a lawsuit, which varies by state. Understanding these time limits is essential, as failing to file within the period can bar an individual from pursuing legal action.

I couldn't be more pleased with Kidneigh & Kaufman. Mr. Chrichton handled my auto-related personal injury case. He was professional, very experienced, empathetic, and maintained excellent communication throughout the duration of my case. I could always make contact with him for questions or clarifications, he provided excellent guidance, and I always felt that he had my best interests at heart. His paralegal Alexa was absolutely amazing, often answering my emails and calls in short order, keeping track of every aspect of my case, and providing invaluable assistance with navigating the complexities of insurance claims and other details. I wholeheartedly recommend the firm, and will certainly be returning to them in the future for my legal needs.
