The most common type of premise liability cases are slip & fall accidents where a customer or guest on the property slips and falls because the flooring was uneven, torn or slippery or because a handrail wasn’t secure and failed when they attempted to use it.
Deterioration of a deck or steps due to exposure to the elements or age can cause them to fail and injure someone who has a right to be on the property. Elevators that malfunction and improper covers on subterranean areas that fail can cause serious falls that cause disabilities or death.
Injuries can also occur when something falls on someone such as merchandise that was stored on a high shelf or materials fall off a roof that is being worked on. If something like this has happened to you, a premises liability lawyer can help.
