Premises liability cases consist of accidents that take place as a result of unsafe conditions or negligent maintenance on property that is owned by someone other than the victim of the accident. Slip and fall accidents occur quite frequently. The accident may occur on a stairway, on a sidewalk, or in numerous other dangerous locations. These injuries can be very serious to the victim and result in severe pain and suffering. Substantial medical treatment, inability to work, and physical impairment or disability can result from negligent property owners.

If the accident takes place on someone else's property, there is a possibility that the occupant or owner of the property has an insurance plan that includes coverage for compensation of your medical expenses. Other damages, such as lost wages, pain and suffering and disability, may not be covered by the insurance coverage. In a premises liability case it is the victim's responsibility to prove that the owner or occupant's negligence was the cause of the accident.

Premises liability lawsuits can spring from any number of situations, such as a slippery floor in a restaurant or an ill-functioning electric gate. Premises liability law also pertains to injuries that occur because of a failure to protect a person from harm caused by third persons on the premises. An example of this might be insufficient or missing signage in a parking structure that leads to a collision.

Another variation is known as premises security law. In this scenario, a crime victim may sue a landowner or business establishment if that owner failed to provide adequate security against criminal acts; for example, if a person is mugged at a shopping area where there is insufficient lighting to deter crime. Other common causes of negligence in premises cases include failure to train security personnel, failure to warn against the potential of criminal activity, and negligent supervision of employees.
