What are some of the most common examples of premises liability claims?

There are a wide variety of scenarios that may constitute a premises liability lawsuit. For example, if you slipped and fell on a wet floor due to no fault of your own, you may have a claim. If you tripped and fell because of an unsafe stairwell, you may also have a claim. If you were injured on someone else’s property due to an unsafe property condition, you may have a premises liability claim.

How do I know if I have a valid premises liability claim?

To win a premises liability claim, you are required to prove several things. First, you must prove that the property owner in question owed you a duty of care. You will then have to prove that the property owner either knew or should have known about the unsafe property condition, failed to take timely action to remedy the issue, and that you were injured and sustained damages as a result. This is known as satisfying the burden of proof. As long as you can do so, you should win your personal injury claim.
