What Are Common Types of Premises Liability Claims?
Premises liability is a broad term that can describe various types of claims. In general, premises liability cases are personal injury claims. These types of claims stem from a situation where a dangerous condition on someone’s property causes an accident, leading to significant injuries and financial losses on the victim’s part. Falls are generally the most common type of premises liability claim.
Other types of premises liability claims can involve any of the following:
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Falls from heights
- Wet or slippery floors
- Dog bites
- Dangerous animals
- Uneven or cracked flooring
- Uneven or cracked sidewalks
- Loose cords or wires
- Unmarked stairs
- Stairs without railing or stairs with broken railing
- Loose carpets, rugs, or tiles
- Lack of warning signs
- Poor maintenance
- Poor lighting conditions
- Elevator accidents
- Escalator accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Burns from faulty or outdated electric cords or appliances
- Inadequate security measures
- Negligent security
“Common” doesn’t mean it is easy for an accident victim to recover the money they deserve. Often, it takes legal intervention by an experienced attorney to help an individual pursue the compensation they deserve following any premises liability accident. If you are unsure whether an accident rises to the level of a premises liability claim, discuss your situation with a knowledgeable premises liability lawyer in Houston.
