Premises liability is when an individual is injured due to the negligence of a property owner. All property owners have the duty and responsibility to provide a safe environment for visitors and guests on their property. It does not matter if the property is owned by an individual, corporation or the government. These entities or individuals owe a duty of care to everyone on their property to prevent injuries from dangerous, unsafe and hazardous conditions.
Some of the types of premises liability cases are as follows:
- Broken or uneven sidewalks or roads
- Wet or slippery floors
- Broken or defective stairways
- Dark or Inadequate lighting conditions
- Snow and ice patches like black ice on parking lots, sidewalks and driveways
- Elevator defects such as uneven stops and sudden falls

- Defective or damaged gas line, water leaks
- Fire hazards such as trash, ashtrays, etc.
