Premises Liability Injuries

Any property owner has a duty to maintain a safe environment for anyone that is on that property. This includes homeowners and business owners. Both can purchase premises liability insurance that covers accidents and injuries that may occur on their property. When a store owner neglects to keep safe walkways or adequate security, they can put their customers at risk of injury. If you are injured due to unsafe premises, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries from the property owner or their insurance company.

The general rule for premises liability law is that when an owner or occupier of land, by expressed or implied invitation, induces or leads others to come upon his/her premises for any lawful purpose, he/she is liable in damages to such persons. They are liable for injuries caused by failure to exercise ordinary care in keeping the premises and approaches safe. The owner or occupier of the premises owes the invitee the duty of ordinary care in keeping the premises and approaches safe. This is generally a nondelegable duty, so unless the owner has fully surrendered control of the premises to an independent contractor, the fact that injury resulted from the contractor’s negligence will not insulate the owner from liability.

Types of Premises Liability Injuries

Premises liability injuries come in many forms. It is not just slipping on a wet floor or sitting on a broken chair that can cause injury. Construction of the building, security measures and other factors can create unsafe environments that can lead to injuries. Some common types of premises liability injuries and risks include:

If you have been injured when on another person’s or business’ property due to unsafe conditions, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries. Contact the Law Office of Dwayne L. Brown to discuss your claim.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.

Attorney Brown resolved my case to my absolute satisfaction and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.
