What Are Common Premises Liability Cases?
The underlying premise of any premises liability case is that an incident occurs due to a property owner (residential or commercial) fails to maintain reasonably safe conditions. Example: A store owner knows there is a leaky corner of their building and fails to put up a "Caution" sign. If someone accidentally slips, that store owner breached his or her duty of care and is negligent for knowing about the problem and not doing anything to prevent injuries.
Here are a few of the most common circumstances where premises liability cases crop up:
- At waterparks or recreation centers
- Summercamps, swimming pools, parks
- On rental or private properties
- Tripping due to inadequate lighting
- Amusement parks
- Due to broken equipment (gyms, activities, etc.)
- While in a commercial place of business
- Fire or electrical problems
- Inadequate snow and ice removal
Premises liability cases are among the highest-paid in regards to personal injury. This is due to the fact that there are often several at-fault parties, such as the business owner, the property owner, and whomever else was negligent. It's important for our St. Louis premises liability lawyers to investigate your claim and make sure you have the best legal representation possible in order to secure just and fair compensation.
Taking a fall or being injured due to broken equipment can lead to an assortment of injuries that may require thousands of dollars in medical expenses, rehabilitation, and lost wages. This may include damaged spines and necks, broken bones, burns, scars, emotional trauma, and other injuries. If there were a "plus side" to pursuing a premises liability case, it is that you can rest easy knowing that a (reasonable) business or property owner will take care of the problem and make sure it doesn't happen to anyone else in the future.
