Did You Suffer a Serious Injury on Someone Else’s Property?
Landowners are responsible for keeping their property safe and hazard-free.

Common Property Hazards & Defects
Anything from a loose cable to an unfilled hole could be considered a hazard in a premises liability case.

- Building and ceiling collapse
- Unmarked wet floors
- Uneven or cracked pavement
- Inadequate lighting
- Worn and raised carpets
- Open drainage ditches
- Missing or broken railings
- Loose roofing materials
- Broken ladders or staircases
- Inadequate security
- Icy pavement or sidewalks
- Lack of adequate warning signs
- Dead trees or branches
- Unfenced swimming pools
- Dangerous pets
Filing a Lawsuit for Dangerous Property Conditions
If your injuries were caused by a preventable property hazard, you may be able to file a lawsuit to help you cover the medical expenses from your treatment and recovery, as well as any other damages you may have incurred, such as lost wages and pain and suffering. In order to file a file a successful premises liability lawsuit, however, you need to be able to prove a few things, including that you didn’t enter the property illegally and that the property owner reasonably knew, or should have known, about the hazard before you were injured.
Premises liability laws can be complicated, but an experienced premises liability lawyer can help you build a case that will put you in the best position possible to secure maximum compensation.
