INJURED ON THE PREMISES

Property owners are responsible for maintaining a relatively safe environment which gives those entering the property a reasonable expectation of safety. The legal theory of “premises liability” holds owners and residents liable for injuries sustained on property that is considered dangerous. These accidents include “slip-and-falls,” tripping, and something hitting or falling on someone. The status of the visitor (invitee, social guest, licensee, or trespasser) can sometimes have a bearing on the case. The age of the visitor and the property owner’s status as a landlord may also play roles in determining liability (a landowner’s duty to warn is different with respect to children who are not authorized to be on a property).

If you were injured on someone’s property it does not necessarily mean that the property owner was negligent. You have to show that the property owner knew or should reasonably have known that the premises were in an unsafe condition, and still failed to take proper steps to remedy the situation.
