18 Types of Premises Liability

When you stop to think about how many places you visit in a day, week, or month it starts to add up. We are so comfortable walking into new stores or strange places with the assumption that we will feel safe. And why shouldn’t we? There are so many rules and regulations that property owners and Leasers need to follow to ensure that it is safe for the public. However, sometimes for reasons beyond our understanding, the places we visit are not safe. The places we visit do not do their homework or keep up the work necessary to create a safe space for visitors. If you or someone you love gets injured while on someone’s property, you need to seek legal assistance. Our premises liability lawyers in Philadelphia at Dan Doyle Law Group have seen it all. In fact. we have seen so many cases that we have dedicated our practice to 18 different types of premises liability claims.

What is a Premises Liability?

In short, individuals or companies are liable to anyone who is hurt while on their property to the extent that the person was acting reasonably when they were injured. Property owners have a duty to ensure that their space is safe for people. This duty is breached when someone suffers an injury. The most common premises liability claims are slips and falls. Other scenarios involve falling objects, failure to maintain areas that accumulate water or ice, poorly lit areas including stairwells and parking lots, and sidewalk or roadway defects. Owning a building isn’t easy, but is your job to ensure the safety of the people who use the building.
