Premises liability is more than slip and fall accidents

Whenever we speak of premises liability cases, we often refer to them as slip and fall accidents. This is easier for most people to understand, and because such accidents seem to be heard of and spoken of more often than other premises liability claims, one may suspect they are fairly open-and-shut. However, it is important to remember that there is more to premises liability cases than slipping at someone’s house and banging your head.

Premises liability claims do not only occur in residential areas or homes; they can occur on any premises in which there is a negligent property factor that contributed to an injury. This can include injury due to unexpected smoke inhalation that could have been avoided if the premises had a properly functioning smoke detector, for example. Even animals that cause injury to visitors can qualify as a premises liability claim if proper warning was not issued about the dangers of the animal.

These are only a few examples of what kinds of issues a premises liability case could deal with, and you can find even more examples at our premises liability website.
