Premises Liability Law

Premises liability is an area of law covering claims against the owner or occupier of a store, apartment complex, hotel, retail building, or other property for an injury occurring on that property. Premises liability claims commonly involve slip and fall accidents, dog bites, construction defects, industrial incidents, elevator and escalator incidents, and claims for negligent security or assault.

A property owner is not automatically responsible for an injury simply because an incident happened on his property. To win a case, the victim must prove that the owner of the property was negligent in failing to correct or warn of known hazardous conditions. Steven Barnett has a proven track record of winning cases and he will use this experience to help you.

If you have been injured on another’s property, here are a few things you should do:

  • Get immediate medical attention, if necessary;
  • Identify the property owner or occupier (rent/lease);
  • Take a lot of pictures of the property defect that caused your injuries;
  • Take pictures of your injuries;
  • Get insurance information for the property;
  • In writing, immediately request any video for the 24 hours surrounding the incident.The letter should be sent certified and regular mail addressed to the property owner and manager. It should also state that this involves “potential litigation”.
