Premises Liability and Dangerous Condition aka “Trip and Fall”
“Premises liability” is a type of personal injury lawsuit brought by a person injured by a dangerous condition on another’s property. Under premises liability laws, property owners may be held financially responsible for accidents or injuries that occur due to their negligence. One of the more common examples are cases where our client fell due to a dangerous condition, and was seriously injured. These falls may be caused by improper facility maintenance, poor building construction, inadequate warnings, insufficient lighting, inadequate handrails or stairs, dangerous animals on premises and other defects.
If you are injured due to a faulty design or manufacture of a product, you may be entitled to compensation if you correctly used the product and were nevertheless injured.
