Types of Premises Liability Cases

Published on March 2nd, 2023

What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability cases are personal injury cases where an injury occurs on a property that is occupied, managed, or owned by another person, organization, or business owner. In these situations, the person in charge of taking care of the property may be liable for injuries sustained by an individual who had a right to be on that property, such as a customer or guest.

Situations often seen in premises liability cases are slip and fall accidents. These accidents can result in concussions, neck injuries, broken bones, sprains, and a variety of other serious injuries. Common causes of slip and fall accidents may include broken steps, a wet spot on the floor, or improperly blocked off construction areas.

Slip and falls are not the only type of premises liability accidents our Rockford personal injury attorneys see on a regular basis. Other common types of premises liability claims include:

  • Elevator or Escalator Accidents
  • Stair Collapse/Stair Accidents
  • Fires
  • Amusement Park Accidents
  • Inadequate Security
  • Falling Objects
  • Food Poisoning
  • Swimming Pool Accidents
  • Faulty Electronic Exit & Entrance Doors

Premises liability accidents can be quite serious, and sometimes the injuries sustained result in death. When this occurs, surviving family members may choose to file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for medical bills, economic damages, funeral costs, and other losses.
