If you are injured while on another person's property, the legal principle of premises liability dictates that the manager or owner of that property is responsible for your injuries if the accident was caused by negligence. While some accidents are unavoidable, many can be directly attributed to carelessness on the part of the property owner, such as failure to remove hazards on the property or to warn against known dangers. Nearly any property owner can be sued for premises liability, from a private homeowner to a restaurant, hotel or retail store, or even a landlord who fails to provide reasonable security measures. There are many situations which can lead one to be injured while on another person's property; the most common circumstances include:
- Poor lighting conditions
- Poor layout or design of the property
- Poor maintenance or repair of the property
- Broken handrails / stairwells
- Slippery or wet floors
