Common Types of Premises Liability Claims

The National Safety Council reports that the third leading cause of unintentional injury death is from falling, and many of these incidents are caused by an initial slip-and-fall hazard. Although trip, slip, or fall hazards may not sound that serious on their own, a wet or uneven surface can pose a serious threat to health and safety, and it can be particularly dangerous for the elderly or those with existing disabilities.

For this exact reason, it’s important for property owners to keep their premises reasonably clean and free from slip-and-fall hazards, as well as maintain their property on an ongoing basis. There are also many other types of repair and security needs that, if improperly maintained by the owner, can pose a major safety risk for visitors.

Some of the most common causes for a premises liability claim include:

  • Animal bites and attacks
  • Violence due to inadequate security
  • Broken and faulty stairs
  • Absent or broken hand railings
  • Damaged and torn carpeting
  • Slippery floors
  • Toxic chemical exposure
  • Lead paint injuries

In order to prove a premises liability claim for one of the accidents listed above, however, you will need to demonstrate that the property owner had a “duty of care” to fix it. You must also make it clear that the property owner knew about the hazard, understood that it could pose a safety risk to the public, and still failed to fix the issue in an appropriate amount of time.
