Understanding Liability Laws

If a property owner knows and expects that visitors will enter his or her property, he or she has a duty to take reasonable measures to prevent injuries occurring due to dangerous conditions, such as negligent security or property contamination. This means regularly inspecting the property for hazards and making any necessary repairs or adequately warning visitors that the danger exists. When the failure to do so leads to an injury, the property owner may be considered liable to cover the victim’s expenses.

When determining if the property owner is liable, the following elements will be considered:

  • The circumstances of the injured visitor’s presence on the property
  • The standard uses of the property
  • Whether or not the accident or injury was foreseeable
  • Whether or not the owner made reasonable effort to repair or warn visitors of a hazardous condition

Common examples of accidents that lead to premises liability claims include slip and falls, snow and ice accidents, swimming pool accidents, animal or dog attacks, and burn injuries from fires. Additionally, if you were the victim of an assault or other violent crime on a property that was not adequately guarded against criminal activity, you may have a claim on the grounds of negligent security.
