Information on Premises Liability
If you have suffered an injury on someone else's property due to their negligence with regards to the property, you may be protected under premises liability law. When someone owns a property, they must be aware of all potential dangers that the property poses to anyone on it. It is the property owner's responsibility to take care of or put warning signs out for anything that could potentially be a safety hazard to the people on his or her property. If you have been injured due to a property owner's negligence, contact a Longview personal injury attorney today.
The most common type of premises liability accident is the "slip and fall" or "trip and fall." While at first, a slip and fall may seem like no big deal, if you or a loved one hits your head during the accident, you could suffer any number of catastrophic injury, including a spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury. A slip and fall is not to be taken lightly. Common causes of premises liability accidents can include the following:
- Uneven or broken pavement
- Wet floors
- Loose rugs
- Rain or ice
You may be surprised to learn that premises liability law is in effect at shopping malls, parking garages, parking lots, school campuses, apartment complexes, and even your workplace. If you have suffered an injury due to improper premises maintenance, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering.
