Common Types of Premises Liability Claims
If a person is injured at someone else’s house or at a store, is that considered a premises liability claim? Most likely, yes. Although many people know that slips and falls are common in premises liability claims, there are many other types of injuries and accidents that warrant such a claim.
Types of Premises Liability
Besides slips and falls, maintenance issues also may cause injury to visitors. For example, improper landscaping can cause a tree branch to fall on a pedestrian or vehicle, and property defects may cause injuries. For example, a tear in the carpet can cause a portion of it to come up and create a tripping hazard. Drowning and animal attacks also may leave property owners liable for damages.
Premises security liability claims, meanwhile, may involve businesses that are open at all hours, such as apartment buildings and hotels. Some venues may have high levels of criminal activity, and the victims may claim that improper lighting and lack of security have brought about crimes such as rape and assault.
