Any homeowner or business property owner should be aware that a certain amount of safety for those coming to their premises is required. The laws are generally clear that if someone is injured on your premises, the owner is liable if it can be proved premises neglect caused the injury. There are any number of places one can be held liable if negligent – public or private properties, government buildings or theaters, for example. If there are temporary unsafe conditions on any premises, there need to be warning signs clearly defining the danger, such as if wet snow that has left puddles on the way into a store, signage needs to be posted to ensure visitors are aware.
There are countless ways an owner could be sued for premises liability, but there are some common ones frequently resulting in injury. Some examples are sidewalks with cracks or holes, swimming pools not securely fenced in a yard, or lack of stability of products in a store that might drop on people. Owners will work hard to prove that their premises were safe; the burden of proof is on the plaintiff, who has to prove that premises neglect caused their injury.
