Premises liability cases are sometimes wrongly thought of as “slip and fall” cases. While they certainly can encompass a slip and fall situation, there are so many other possible accidents and injuries that are caused by premises liability.
Any time a building is unsafe, particularly when the owner or landlord has been informed of its lack of safeness and has chosen to do nothing about it, liability is a real concern. And sometimes innocent people are hurt on those premises – a poorly maintained railing gives way, an apartment building in a high crime area fails to provide adequate security, or a spill on the floor at a grocery store is not mopped up in a timely manner.
Due to the expansive nature of premises liability cases, injuries can include broken bones, head injuries, injuries related to an assault, infliction of fear by not providing a safe place to live, and even including death. Your attorney in a premises liability case needs to be able to work with homeowner's or business insurance companies as well as the landlord or owner of the premises in order to recover maximum damages for your claim. And he or she must be ready to take your case to trial in case it does not settle.
