Injuries caused by slips, trips or falls, inadequate security, lead poisoning, construction, farms, swimming pools, fires, explosions, exposure to hazardous materials, athletics, animal bites, and workplace injuries are far too common. Often, such injuries are caused by the negligence of another person.
A thorough understanding of the ever-changing and fact-specific law regarding the various and numerous incidents that result in premises liability is essential to successful legal representation.
Slip and fall accidents are covered by negligence law and deal with the concept of premises liability. Property owners have a "duty of care" to see that their property is safe. This includes ensuring that the building has no structural defects that could cause an accident, both inside and out.
In some states, the property owner may also have a duty to reduce problem areas caused by weather. A plaintiff or claimant also has a duty to exercise reasonable care to open and obvious dangers on the premises, so if any action of yours contributed to the accident, you may share in the negligence.
