What You Need To Know About Premises Liability Claims

Premises liability claims arise when an individual is hurt on another party’s property. Any negligent action (or failure to act) by a property owner can be the cause for a premises liability claim. These types of cases can be complex, so it is essential to retain a premises liability attorney to help you understand all of your legal options. 

Premises liability injuries can be caused by a wide variety of factors, such as:

  • Broken-up asphalt or concrete
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Patches of ice or snow
  • Failure to provide adequate security
  • Slips or trips due to food or drink left on the floor
  • Worn or torn flooring
  • Defective railings
  • Failure to provide slip-resistant material on stairs
  • Holes or depressions
  • Failure to warn of dangerous conditions

No two accidents or injuries are identical. Types of injuries that commonly occur due to the negligence of a property owner include:

  • Abrasions and cuts
  • Brain injuries
  • Blunt force trauma
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Dog bites
  • Electrocution
  • Injuries due to an assault
  • Paralysis
  • Rape

Pursuant to Pennsylvania law, you typically have only two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit, so it is important to seek legal help as quickly as possible. In addition, evidence necessary to prove liability can be lost over time, so the quicker you retain a lawyer, the more likely you are to successfully recover for your injuries.
