Injuries On Private Property
Every property owner has a legal responsibility to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition. The extent of the legal duty differs between a commercial property owner, a private property owner and a governmental property owner. But the basic legal duty is the same.
The concept is known as premises liability. If a person is injured on the property of another, and if the injury could have been prevented by the property owner’s reasonable actions to keep the property safe, then the property owner is legally bound to compensate the injured person for financial losses associated with the accident.
Premises liability cases involve occurrences like:
- Slip-and-fall accidents in a grocery store or restaurant caused by a slippery substance on the floor that no one cleaned up
- Trip-and-fall accidents in a commercial parking lot due to an unrepaired pothole
- Assaults or robberies in shopping malls, apartment complexes, parking lots or stores, when the property owner knew of the danger but was negligent about increasing security
- Dog bites and animal attacks, because animal owners are legally responsible for injuries their animals cause
