What You Need To Know About Premises Liability Cases

Premises liability cases are a type of personal injury case where the injury was caused by an unsafe or dangerous condition on someone’s property. If you think you may have a premises liability case on your hands, here’s what you need to know.

  • There are several different types of premises liability cases. A couple include dog bites, swimming pool accidents, defective conditions on property, snow and ice slip and fall incidents, and inadequate maintenance on the premises.
  • The basis for most personal injury cases and premises liability cases is negligance. However, just because you may have been injured on someone elses property doesn’t automatically mean the owner was negligent. In order to win these types of cases, there has to be proof.
  • Different states have different rules when it comes to premises liability cases. Some states require proof that the defendant owned, leased or occupied the property while others require proof that the defendent was negligent in the use of the property.
