Caution Wet Floor Sign

Premises liability cases are presented to attorneys when injury victims feel that they were hurt because of a careless property owner’s missteps. Many different kinds of injury cases can stem from poorly maintained properties. But all of these cases depend on the victim’s ability to prove that the owner failed to use reasonable care in the maintenance of the property where the injury occurred. If you or someone you care about has been injured on someone else’s property, you might have a strong personal injury case on your hands.

Here are the top three reasons attorneys see premises liability cases.

    1. Slip and Fall?
      Slip and fall accidents are the top reason for premises liability cases, bar none. Crumbling walkways or stairs, loose handrails, ice, and wet floors are just a few of the ways people commonly fall and become injured. These and other conditions are supposed to be remedied right away by the property owner. They may fix the problem or block off the area to prevent pedestrian traffic, but failing to do either is considered negligence.

 

    1. Injured in a Swimming Pool?
      Swimming pool accidents are another major source of premises liability cases. Shallow areas must be clearly marked as No Diving zones. Water must be maintained to prevent the spread of disease. The areas around the pool must be coated with a non-slip product to prevent the wet surfaces from becoming slick. Failing to meet these and other essential requirements results in many pool-related injuries every year.

 

  1. Harmed by Toxic Fumes?
    A number of conditions can cause the build-up of toxic fumes in a building, but it often comes down to poor ventilation. Carbon monoxide poisoning is usually due to a leaking furnace, but a simple carbon monoxide detector will alert people in the vicinity to the invisible hazardous condition. Failing to address a gas leak or maintain monitors can make people sick and even cause death.

 

Do You Have a Premises Liability Case on Your Hands?

If you have been injured on someone else’s property, do you believe that the injury could have been prevented by following reasonable maintenance practices? If so, consider consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney. He or she can review your case and help you determine whether you should pursue damages to help you recover from and pay for your injury.
