Premises Liability

“Premises Liability” refers to accidents that occur due to the negligent maintenance, operation, or design of property owned by someone other than the accident victim. Premises liability includes claims against a landlord by a tenant or against the landowner for injuries suffered by an individual who was lawfully on the property. Premises liability actions have traditionally involved “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” injuries. Premises liability law is not, however, limited to such causes of action and also includes:

  • Construction accidents
  • Dangerous roadways
  • Defective lighting
  • Failure to correct hazardous or dangerous conditions
  • Injuries caused by the conduct of third persons on the premises
  • Landlord liability
  • Lead poisoning
  • Poor circulation or ventilation causing “sick building” syndrome
  • Sticky or slippery floors
  • Toxic chemical exposure
  • Toxic mold exposure

When determining liability in a premises liability action, the crucial elements are ownership, possession, and control of the premises. Under certain circumstances, the person who owns, possesses, or controls the premises may be responsible for injuries arising from a condition of the premises.
