Understanding Premises Liability Laws
Premises liability laws are in place to help protect tenants and invited guests from being injured. These laws require that property owners (whether private or public) maintain their property within reasonable standards of care. Unfortunately, many tenants and landlords are negligent or outright reckless when it comes to maintaining their properties, leading to accidents and injuries like yours.
There are many types of premises liability incidents, including:
- Elevator accidents
- Parking lot accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Negligent security
- Escalator accidents
- Lead poisoning
- Poolside accidents
