Premises liability is the legal obligation placed on property owners to make sure that visitors are safe while on their property. If someone is injured on their property due to negligence, the property owner may be liable for any damages caused. Here are some common premises liability claims that Moriarty Injury Lawyer can assist you with.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents can happen due to wet or slippery floors, uneven surfaces, poor lighting or other hazardous conditions. If you are injured due to a slip and fall accident, gathering evidence, such as photos of the accident scene, witness statements and medical records to support your claim, is essential.
Dog bites are another common type of premises liability claim. If a property owner has a dog on their property, they have a legal duty to ensure that the dog does not harm others. If a dog bites someone, the property owner may be liable for any damages caused. This includes medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
If property owners fail to provide adequate security measures, they may be held liable for any damages caused by criminal activity on their premises. This includes assault, robbery or any other illegal act. Negligent security claims can occur in various settings, including apartment buildings, hotels, shopping centers and office buildings.
Elevator and Escalator Accidents
Elevator and escalator accidents can occur due to faulty equipment, poor maintenance or inadequate safety measures. These accidents can result in severe injuries, including head and neck injuries, broken bones and spinal cord injuries. Therefore, property owners have a legal duty to ensure that their elevators and escalators are safe for visitors.
Swimming Pool Accidents
Swimming pool accidents can occur due to inadequate safety measures, such as the lack of fencing or safety covers. They can also occur due to poor maintenance or inadequate supervision. If a property owner has a swimming pool on their premises, they have a legal duty to ensure it is safe for visitors.
