What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is the area of law that governs what happens when you are injured on someone else’s property due to an unknown hazard. Slip and fall accidents and animal attacks are two of the most common types of New Haven premises liability cases. However, there are many other types as well, including cases involving the following circumstances:
- Inadequate lighting;
- Inadequate security;
- Roof cave-ins; and
- Swimming pool accidents
Any residential, commercial, or public space can be the scene of a premises liability accident, including:
- Apartment buildings;
- Office buildings;
- Sports facilities;
- Private homes;
- Shopping malls;
- Nursing homes; and
- Treatment centers
Property owners have a responsibility to ensure that their property is free from hazards and unsafe conditions. If a property owner failed to meet this obligation, and you were injured as a result, you may be able to hold them liable to compensate you for damages, such as:
- Medical expenses;
- Lost wages and income;
- Property damage;
- Pain and suffering; and
- Any resulting permanent disability
In addition to the property owner, property managers, tenants, contractors, and corporate entities may also be held liable. Furthermore, if more than one party had the right to control the property, then they may all be held liable.
