Premises Liability In-Depth

Premises liability is an area of law that deals with injuries that arise on public and private property. Property owners and tenants have a duty to make sure that people who come onto their property are not injured by dangerous conditions or defects. When a person is injured due to the negligence of a landlord or tenant, then the injured person may file a premises liability lawsuit to recover compensation for medical expenses and other damages arising out of their injury.

Common grounds for premises liability lawsuits include:

  • Slip-and-falls
  • Vicious dogs
  • Inadequate security
  • Poorly lit or maintained stairwells
  • Toxic substances such as lead-based paint, mold and asbestos

There are many situations in which both a tenant and a landlord will be liable for injuries that occur on property. Examples include slip-and-falls that happen in a mall or at a friend's apartment.
