Premises Liability is a term used to describe the legal responsibility that landowners and occupiers of a property have for accidents and injuries that occur on their property. Premises liability claims often involve accidents that occur due to negligent maintenance or unsafe and dangerous conditions of property. Common situations giving rise to premises liability claims include uneven floor or walking surfaces, slippery surfaces, and broken sidewalks and steps.
Another area of premises liability involves inadequate security. Inadequate security claims usually involve situations where someone is the victim of a crime on a business premises. Often, these claims involve hotels, shopping centers, apartments and parking garages, where there is knowledge of prior criminal activity on the premises yet the business establishment fails to protect their customers or guests. Unfortunately, many of these claims involve victims who have been severely injured, raped or killed as a result of a business establishment failing to protect its customers from known criminal activity.
