Slips, Falls and Other Premises Liability
Premises liability refers to the legal obligations of property owners and occupiers to prevent injuries to people on their property. The most common cause of premises liability claims is injuries resulting from a slip and fall or a trip on an uneven floor surface, ice, spilled liquid or other debris. The liability of the property owner and/or occupier varies significantly depending on the state in which the accident occurred. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to help you determine the property owner’s liability in your jurisdiction. If you or someone you know has been injured as the result of an unsafe condition on someone else’s property, you should speak to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible following the accident.
