Types of Premises Liability Claims
You can come to our firm if you need help filing a claim for:
Slip and fall: Slip/trip and fall accidents are among the most common types of premises
liability claims filed. Lifted carpets, slick floors, loose cables, and
more are all hazards that can send someone tumbling down.
Negligent security: Certain property owners should take security measures to protect people
on their property from crime. If they do not, they can be held liable
for assaults, robberies, and so on that occur there.
Dog bite: If you are bitten by someone’s dog while you are lawfully visiting
their property, then you might be able to sue for compensation by filing
a claim against their homeowners’ insurance policy.
Attractive nuisance: When a child is injured after being lured into someone’s yard by
a pool or another hazard that looks entertaining to a child, the attractive
nuisance doctrine can be used to hold that property owner accountable.
Premises Liability Cases Depend on Open & Obvious Hazards
For most premises liability claims to have a strong foothold, the hazard
in question must have been “open and obvious.” A hazard is
in the open if it can be accessed with relative ease by a visitor or passerby.
A hazard is obvious if the property owner should have noticed it if they
had been reasonable in their attempts to maintain the property safely.
When a visitor is hurt by a hazard that the property owner should have
noticed but did not, a premises liability claim might follow. The same
is true if the property owner knew of the hazard but made no effort to
protect visitors, guests, and others from it.
Property owners often try to use the open and obvious hazard argument in
their defense. They can argue that the claimant should have noticed and
avoided the hazard if it was in the open and obvious to notice. This argument
depends on shifting liability for the condition of the property onto the
visitor, which might not get far if the claimant has an experienced legal
team on their side.
