What Is Premises Liability?
Phoenix Premises Liability Lawyers
Premises liability law exists to protect the rights of individuals who
becomes injured on someone else's property. Usually, this is due to
some form of negligence on the part of the property owner through a lack
of prompt maintenance and care. This can happen at a number of locations
including private residences, retail stores, amusement parks, universities,
parking garages, construction sites, and more.
Common premises liability cases can include injuries sustained by:
- Cracked or uneven pavement in sidewalks or parking lots
- Insufficient security or nighttime lighting that may encourage criminal activity
- Unsteady or absent railings on stairwells
- Debris or spills on floors, leading to slip and fall accidents
- Defective equipment
- Dangerous electrical conditions
- Bites from unsecured dogs

or warn about the condition, and 4) that this failure to act directly
