Types of Premises Liability Cases
A premises liability case is the umbrella term for any lawsuit involving an injury that happens on someone else’s property. To save you the trouble of looking for legal assistance capable of taking your case, we have taken the time to become familiar with all sorts of premises liability cases and issues.
Three common types of premises liability cases are:
- Slip and fall accidents: The most common type of premises liability case is the slip and fall accident, which is also one of the more common types of personal injury claims overall. Although you need to take reasonable precautions to avoid slipping or tripping on someone else’s property, the property owner has the responsibility to protect you from hazards that would make a slip and fall more likely, such as spilled products, cracked asphalt, or lifted carpeting. Slip and fall accident cases often involve retail store defendants.
- Dog bites: When visiting someone else’s home and they have a dog, they must make certain the animal is under control and well behaved. If their dog bites you, even if it has never attacked or acted aggressively before the dog owner and his homeowner’s insurance company are almost certainly required to compensate you.
- Negligent security: Certain store and land owners must take security measures to help protect visitors from crimes on their property, such as assaults and robberies. For example, an apartment complex in a high crime neighborhood should hire a security guard to patrol the complex and/or install security gates and cameras at key locations. Failing to take those security precautions could subject the proprietor to liability for any criminal harm done to visitors.
What Should You Do After a Premises Liability Accident?
It is extremely important that you seek medical attention for your injuries. Sometimes, an injury which seems like it's a small concern can actually be a lot more serious. Injuries we see from premises liability accidents include:
- Dislocations (typically caused by falls)
- Twisted or pulled joints
- Sexual and other physical assault injuries
- Paralysis (typically from severe falls)
- Spinal injuries
- Lacerations and bruises
- Animal bites
While regaining and preserving your health is the main concern, that isn't the only reason you should seek medical attention if you have been injured on someone else's property through no fault of your own. It can actually hurt your case if you fail to seek medical treatment. The property owner could argue that your injuries must not have been that serious.
