Causes of Premise Liability
Slip and Fall Accidents: Slippery or wet floors, uneven surfaces, loose floor coverings, inadequate lighting, or lack of warning signs can lead to slip and fall accidents. Property owners have a duty to maintain safe walking surfaces and promptly address any hazards that could cause falls.

Poorly Maintained Walkways and Staircases: Cracked or broken sidewalks, potholes, loose handrails, or poorly maintained staircases can pose significant risks to pedestrians. Inadequate maintenance, failure to repair or warn visitors about potential hazards, or negligent design and construction can contribute to accidents on these pathways.

Hazardous Conditions: Property owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are free from hazardous conditions. This includes addressing issues such as loose or falling objects, exposed wiring, leaking pipes, toxic chemicals, inadequate security measures, or other dangerous conditions that can cause harm to visitors.

Inadequate Security: Property owners may be held liable if they fail to provide adequate security measures that result in criminal acts, such as assaults, robberies, or other violent incidents. Negligent security can include insufficient lighting, malfunctioning security systems, lack of surveillance cameras, or failure to warn visitors about known risks.

Defective Conditions: Property owners can be held liable for injuries caused by defective conditions on their premises, such as faulty elevators, escalators, or other machinery. This also includes defects in the design, construction, or maintenance of buildings or structures that result in accidents or injuries.

Swimming Pool Accidents: Property owners who have swimming pools or other bodies of water on their premises must take appropriate safety measures to prevent accidents. This includes providing proper fencing, signage, and safety equipment, as well as regular maintenance and adherence to local safety regulations.

Inadequate Maintenance of Parking Lots: Property owners who fail to maintain parking lots in a safe condition can be held liable for accidents and injuries. This includes addressing issues such as potholes, inadequate signage, inadequate lighting, or failure to remove ice and snow in a timely manner.

Negligent Hiring or Training: In cases where employees cause harm to visitors or customers, property owners may be held liable for negligent hiring or inadequate training. This can include situations where employees engage in misconduct, assault, or negligence that leads to injuries.

Resulting Injuries
Slip and Fall Injuries: Slip and fall accidents are a common type of premises liability claim. They can result in various injuries, including broken bones, fractures, sprains, and contusions. Depending on the severity of the fall, individuals may experience injuries to their arms, legs, hips, and wrists.

Head and Brain Injuries: Falls on poorly maintained premises or due to hazardous conditions can lead to head injuries, including concussions, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), and skull fractures. These injuries can have long-term consequences, affecting cognitive abilities, motor skills, and overall quality of life.

Back and Spinal Cord Injuries: Inadequate maintenance, uneven surfaces, or hazardous obstacles can cause individuals to fall or experience accidents that result in back and spinal cord injuries. These injuries can range from herniated discs and spinal fractures to more severe conditions like paralysis and permanent disability.

Fractures and Dislocations: Uneven walkways, broken stairs, or insufficient lighting can contribute to trips and falls, leading to fractures and dislocations. Commonly affected areas include wrists, ankles, arms, and shoulders.

Soft Tissue Injuries: Accidents on poorly maintained premises can cause strains, sprains, and tears in muscles, ligaments, and tendons. These injuries can result in pain, limited mobility, and may require extensive medical treatment, including physical therapy.

Cuts, Bruises, and Lacerations: Hazardous conditions such as broken glass, exposed nails, or sharp edges on premises can cause cuts, bruises, and lacerations. Depending on the severity, these injuries may require stitches or surgical intervention and can leave permanent scars.

Burns: Premises with faulty electrical systems, inadequate safety measures, or improper handling of flammable materials can lead to fires or chemical burns. These incidents can cause severe pain, scarring, and long-term physical and emotional trauma.

Emotional Distress: In premises liability cases, individuals may also suffer emotional distress due to the trauma and anxiety caused by the accident. This can include symptoms such as anxiety disorders, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental health issues.
