Premises liability is one of Murray Guari's primary practice areas, in which we have a strong track record. The term generally refers to accidents that occur when someone is injured on another person's property. The injury could be due to lack of or negligent maintenance, unsafe or dangerous conditions on the property, hazards on the property, or lack of security on the property. There are many different types of accidents and injuries that can occur, but premises liability injuries are often slips, trips or falls as a result of:
- Aquatic Accidents
- Water/wet floors
- Debris or other obstacles on the ground or floor
- Slippery substances
- Abrupt changes in flooring
- Poor lighting
- Hidden hazards like a gap or hole in the ground that is hard to see
Property owners (owners of residential and commercial buildings, shopping centers, parking facilities, hotels and casinos, amusement parks, airports, healthcare facilities, restaurants and night clubs, universities and schools, etc.) are expected to maintain their property in a manner that does not cause injury to those that visit the property. It is the responsibility of the property's owner and management to ensure that safe conditions exist at all times. Cases often arise when property owners knew or should have known of the dangerous conditions present on their properties and did not adequately protect the victim from harm.
