Premises liability refers to that area of personal injury law in which the owner or occupier of a property is legally responsible for the injuries and accidents that take place on their premises. When such injuries are the result of negligence on the part of the owner, manager, or occupier of the property, then a personal injury claim or lawsuit may be filed on behalf of the injured victim to recover compensation for the losses and damages connected with his or her injuries.

Slip and fall injury claims are an example of legal action connected with premises liability. Other premises liability claims made be made based on equipment used on the premises or injuries sustained from the criminal actions of another where the premises owner has provided inadequate or negligent security. Injuries connected with premises liability may have occurred from falling objects, poor lighting, broken walking surfaces, or improper or poor signage. If the injured person was a social guest, invitee, or licensed person on the property at the owner's request, the premises owner may be liable for damages. Trespassers cannot sue property owners under premises liability.
An important factor in premises liability cases is whether or not the owner made a reasonable effort to ensure that visitors were not put at risk by hazardous conditions on the property which the owner knew about and should have taken care of. If you believe negligence on the part of the premises owner contributed to the injuries you have suffered in an accident or incident on the property, it is vital that you talk to the Frederick personal injury lawyer at the firm as soon as possible.
