Property owners have a duty to provide a safe environment to people invited on their property. If someone is injured due to negligence on the part of the owner, the injured party has the right to file suit.
However, this does not mean simply because a person slips and falls on another person’s property there is a valid legal basis for a lawsuit; the injury must result from negligence. Negligence refers to proof that the owner of the property was aware or should have been aware that the property was unsafe and did not fulfill their obligation to do what was necessary to make the premises safe.
Premises liability cases can include several types of injurious situations like defective conditions, animal attacks, inadequate security leading to assault or injury, weather conditions, fires, toxic fumes, swimming pool accidents, and many more.
