Premise liability lawsuits hold property owners responsible for damages due to injuries a person sustained on that person’s entity. Property owners must make effort to maintain a safe environment for visitors. Failure to maintain the property can lead to premises liability lawsuits. Some of the most common premise liability lawsuits we handle include:
- Dog bites
- Slip and fall accidents
- Hazardous property
- Negligence or improper security
- Pool injuries
- Improper maintenance
- Commercial liability
If you have sustained injuries on commercial property or at an apartment complex, there are certain legal implications landlords and property holders are required to meet. A landlord is not responsible for injuries of a tenant’s guest as the tenant is in control of the condition of their property. Latent defects are one area that do need to be repaired by landlords as they need to be repaired in a timely, non-negligent manner.
Owners and occupants must regularly inspect their property to ensure repairs are made to prevent dangerous conditions to tenants. If owners fail in their responsibility to meet these legal obligations, they can be held liable for injuries to visitors.
