Premises Liability

Committed Alexandria Attorneys Litigate Premises Liability Claims

Compassionate counsel works for your maximum recovery

Premises liability refers to the responsibility of property owners to provide reasonably safe conditions for visitors, workers, and residents. This means regularly inspecting their buildings, keeping everything to code, and when something is broken, dangerous, or potentially hazardous, pointing that out through signage.

However, patrons and other persons are also responsible for acting prudently, meaning that not all accidents result in valid injury claims — but it is wise to look into your legal rights if an accident does occur.

With premises liability, it comes down to what constitutes as dangerous. Examples include broken stairs, pools without signage stating “No Lifeguard on Duty,” broken glass that has not been replaced, faulty wires, all will make an area dangerous. Once the danger has been identified, it comes down to knowledge, negligence, and liability. If a property owner was unaware of the dangerous condition, then they cannot be held accountable unless they have not followed laws regarding building inspections.

What to do if you’ve suffered a premises liability accident

This makes premises liability claims some of the most complicated to pursue. Not only must a plaintiff prove injury, but you must also prove negligence, knowledge, and fault. If you are ever involved in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, follow these steps to ensure your legal rights are protected:

  • File a report with the manager or property owner and obtain a copy of the report.
  • Take photos of the scene, which caused the accident, and your personal injuries. This way there is evidence that a stair was broken, regardless of whether or not the property manager fixed it afterward.
  • Acquire contact information for managers, witnesses, and building owners.
  • Do not accept a settlement or sign any documents without first consulting an experienced attorney. These documents could jeopardize your claim or close your case forever.

Of course, you also want to get medical attention immediately. That provides additional documentation for your injury and prevents a defendant from claiming you were hurt by an intervening event.
