How do premises injuries occur?
Premises liability cases arise when someone is injured on another person’s property or on business premises due to negligence or carelessness. Property owners, whether commercial or residential, have a duty to ensure the safety of those who have a right and expectation to be on their property. We commonly handle cases arising from the following scenarios:
- Slip and fall/trip and fall incidents due to hazardous conditions on the floor:
- Spills or leaks on the floor
- Debris or merchandise in aisles and walkways
- Cords running across the floor
- Unmarked wet floors from cleaning
- No handrails available
- Uneven walking surfaces
- Injuries from inadequately maintained premises
- Cracks in sidewalk or pavement
- Faulty electrical work
- Store displays falling
- Store shelves falling
- Furniture collapse in hotels or cruise ships
- Swimming pool or hot tub incidents
- Failure to install a fence as required by law
- No lifeguards present
- Lack of pool maintenance
- Misuse of pool chemicals
- Inadequate security on the premises
- Failure to provide security personnel
- Lack of sufficient lighting
- No locks on doors or windows

What are some common premises injuries?
Injuries that arise from premises liability cases vary in severity, but often include the following:
- Broken and dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations or punctures
- Internal organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Spinal cord injuries
- Whiplash injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
These injuries can lead to major expenses for victims and their families. Not only do they have to contend with medical bills, but also lost income if they cannot work as well as pain and suffering damages. These cases can become incredibly complex and often involve multiple parties. An attorney will work to secure all evidence in the case, including surveillance of the incident, eyewitness statements, accident reports, medical records, and more.
