Premises liability cases always involve negligence, just as in any other personal injury case. In these incidences, the victim becomes injured when he or she becomes injured on property that should have reasonably been kept safe or well-maintained.
At Rheingold, Giuffra, Ruffo & Plotkin LLP, we represent those injured due to premises liability and property owner negligence. If you believe you have a case and would like to explore your legal options, please reach out to our firm to request an appointment!
Understanding Negligence Due to Premises Liability
Note that just because you were hurt on another person’s property, it will not automatically mean that negligence played a role. To add to this, unsafe or poorly maintained would be insufficient grounds to prove that negligence played a role and why one should be owed due compensation. In order to prove that a property owner was negligent, the owner should have been aware of the problem and yet failed to take action or correct it.
These are only some examples of possible premises liability:
- Slip and falls
- Poor lighting
- Elevator accidents
- Injuries due to slipping on ice
- Injuries from failed or fallen equipment
- Toxic or chemical exposure
- Inadequate maintenance of the premises
- Failure to take measures and prevent criminal activity
- Inadequate security or surveillance that leads to an injury or assault
