Phoenix Premises Liability Attorney
What Is Premises Liability?
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
What Are My Rights as a Victim?
If you have been hurt on another person’s property, team up with a lawyer to determine your legal options and what will work best for your case. Depending on your unique circumstances, you may be able to hold one or more parties liable for your injury by proving that 1) you sustained an injury, 2) a dangerous condition existed on the property, 3) the property owner knew about it, or should have known about it, and failed to correct or warn about the condition, and 4) that this failure to act directly caused your injury.
A variety of injuries can be sustained by unsafe and improperly maintained conditions due to negligent maintenance. These can include:
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Bone fractures
- Head injuries
Proving negligence ultimately means that the accident should have been avoidable if the property owner exercised a reasonable amount of care.
