Premises Liability Lawsuits
Have You Been Injured on Another Person’s Property?
Under Pennsylvania state law, property owners are expected to keep their
property well-maintained and free of any known hazards. Property owners
can he held liable for paying compensatory damages if it can be proven
that they knew about a dangerous condition, or should have reasonably
known, and failed to take corrective action or at least warn guests of
the potential danger. Injured guests may be able to sue on the grounds
of negligence in this situation.
Examples of Premises Liability Claims
Premises liability law protects individuals who have suffered injuries
caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Loose or protruding concrete, carpeting, or floor boards
- Loose or absent handrails on staircases
- Liquid spills or other debris in walkways
- Inadequate lighting
- Faulty electrical systems
- Unrestrained dogs
- Unfenced swimming pools
- And much more
In some cases, a premises liability claim can even include an assault,
robbery, or rape that occurred because of a lack of reasonable security
measures on a property. A Philadelphia
