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.
