Requirements for a Premises Liability Case

Property owners or those who are in control of property have what is known as a "duty of care" to protect the safety of those who enter or use their property. If someone is injured because a property owner did not meet that duty of care, they may be able to pursue compensation through a premises liability lawsuit. To demonstrate that a property owner is liable for injuries which occurred on their premises, all of the following elements must typically be proved:

  • A dangerous condition existed on the premises that presented an unreasonable risk of injury.
  • The property owner knew or should have known about this dangerous condition.
  • The dangerous condition was not "open and obvious."
  • The injured party was not aware of the dangerous condition.
  • The property owner did not take reasonable measures to correct the dangerous condition or reduce the risks of injury.
  • The injury occurred as a result of the dangerous condition.

Types of Premises Liability Cases

A wide variety of injuries can occur because of the negligence of property owners. Injury victims may be able to pursue compensation in cases involving:

  • Slip and falls - A property owner's failure to address slippery floors or tripping hazards can result in serious fall injuries.
  • Swimming pools - People may be injured in public or private pools if proper lifeguards or safety equipment are not provided or if other dangerous conditions exist. 
  • Dangerous playgrounds - Children may be injured if playground equipment is defective or if playgrounds are not properly maintained.
  • Falling objects - A person may be injured by merchandise which falls from a store's shelves or by tools or materials which fall from a construction site.
  • Negligent security - A property owner may be liable if their failure to provide proper security resulted in a person being injured in an assault.
  • Dangerous apartments - Landlords may be liable for injuries suffered by tenants because proper maintenance or repairs were not completed.
  • Amusement parks and carnivals - Carnival rides can cause serious injuries if they are not operated correctly or if people are not properly warned about the risks of using these rides.
