Premises Liability Litigation

Current Information on Premises Liability Lawsuits

Premises liability litigation is a form of litigation that holds a land or property owner responsible for preventable injuries and harm caused on their property. Landowners are responsible for the safety of persons visiting their property, and can be blamed for torts, or civil wrongs, that are suffered on their premises because of their negligence. No one deserves to be injured or harmed when staying at a hotel, eating at a restaurant, or going to a party at an apartment complex. This page provides information for persons and the family members of persons who have been injured or harmed on another’s property. Premises liability litigation serves to provide for medical expenses and losses of the plaintiff, and can pressure a property owner to increase security measures in order to future prevent crime.

The Legal Definition of Premises Liability Litigation

A property owner may be held accountable for harm, injuries, or criminal acts that take place on their property if they have a breach of the Duty of Care, are found to be Negligent, and/or committed a Wrongful Act.

In other words, a property owner may be subject to premises liability litigation if a person is injured in an accident or incident that can be traced, at least in part, to a failure on their behalf to ensure safety.

Premises Liability LawsuitDetermining Liability

To determine who is liable in a premises liability litigation case, two main factors are considered:

First, did the owner/occupier of the property keep it safe? Owners (or in some cases, property occupiers) have a responsibility not to subject visitors on their property to an unreasonable risk of injury resulting from the design, construction, or condition of the property. If the owner knew or reasonably should have known about the unsafe condition, they may be held liable. Also, if they failed to repair the condition, repaired it in a way that did not fix it or that actually worsened it, or did not mark it or block it off, they may be held liable for the injury or accident. A common source of negligence in premises liability cases is lack of lighting or adequate security personnel. If negligence caused the injury, a property owner or occupier may be to blame.

Secondly, the visitor to the property who was harmed while there must have used the property in a normal fashion. If the visitor did something abnormal, such as jumping down a flight of stairs, and was injured, the property owner/occupier may not be responsible as no negligence was involved.

Premises liability litigation may happen alongside a lawsuit against a third party, as in sexual assault or aggravated assault cases. The property owner can be held responsible for their failure to provide adequate security or provide rapid response to an emergency. Persons who are harmed on such circumstances are not to blame for the incident; property owners have a responsibility to keep visitors safe.
