Premises Liability

An unexpected injury can occur anywhere, but perhaps the last place you’d foresee getting hurt is while stopping by a friend’s house or a place of business. If you’re visiting someone else’s property, you have a right to expect that you’ll be safe.

The landlord or property owner has a responsibility to make sure the area is safe, but also to warn you about any potential dangers.

Sometimes, landlords fail to uphold their duty, resulting in the injury of yourself or a family member. In these cases, you have a right to receive compensation for medical bills and other damages.

The premises liability lawyers at DeMayo Law Offices have years of experience working on premises liability cases. We are well versed in premises liability laws and have built a reputation for aggressive, effective representation for our injured clients.

Types of Premises Liability Accidents

There are a number of premises liability cases. Landlords who do not maintain their properties or look out for the safety of their visitors/inhabitants are failing to comply with their legal duty to keep tenants safe. Injuries can be mild to severe, ranging from broken bones to spinal cord injuries.

Premises liability accidents can include:

 Robberies and Security Breaches

Premises liability cases don’t just include accidents. If your residence was broken into, you may have a cause of action against the owner of the property. It is his/her responsibility to ensure the location is safe, but all too often a lack of effective security results in housing situations that are prone to crime.

If you’ve been injured or assaulted by an intruder because of a negligent property owner or landlord, a thorough investigation may reveal evidence that is very important for your case. Evidence that the building or complex was ill-prepared to protect against an assailant can be vital to proving your case. Such evidence may include:

  • Overgrown bushes
  • Dim lighting in common areas
  • Deserted, poorly lit parking lots
  • Broken locks
  • Breach of duty by security officers
  • Lack of burglar alarms or other security measures
