Premises Liability

Woodstock Premises Liability Lawyer

What is premises liability?

Premises liability cases involve accidents and injuries that take place on the property of another. The word "premises" in this context is referring to a tangible area, while "liability" is referring to fault or guilt for something. Putting these two terms together, in the legal arena, means that a property owner was at fault for causing a person injury because of some negligent or careless action.

Property owners have a certain level of responsibility to maintain their property in such a way so as to help others avoid potential harm. One example would be a grocery store that had a jagged edge on one of their produce shelves. They have a responsibility to maintain this edge so that their customers or employees are not injured on it.

If someone is injured because of the jagged edge, they may be able to file a premises liability case against the owner. There are two major types of premises liability cases. One is the slip and fall injury and the other is negligent security that causes injury. In order to qualify for these types of cases, there are a few standards that must be met.

The defendant must actually own the property in question for a claim to be filed against them, the person who was injured must have been allowed to be on the premises and finally, there must be proven negligence on behalf of the property owner. If these are true of your case, get in touch with a Woodstock personal injury lawyer from our firm.
