Premises liability refers to the responsibility that property owners assume when other people suffer harm on their property. It implies that property owners have an obligation to ensure that their properties are safe, and when they fail to do this, resulting in another person’s injury or illness, they can be held legally and financially responsible. While we at the Chris Mayo Law Firm, know that people throughout San Antonio suffer harm in a range of different ways, there are some types of property hazards that tend to more commonly affect people.
SOME OF THE MORE COMMON PREMISES LIABILITY CASES
Unfortunately, accidents on another person’s property are very likely to occur if that property owner has not taken proper precautions to make the property safe. Some of the most common ways in which innocent people sustain undue harm as a result of this lack of care include:
- Slip and Fall
- Elevator / Escalator Injuries
- Porch Collapse
- Stair Collapse
- Lead Paint Poisoning
- Mercury Poisoning
- Swimming Pool Injuries
Whether a person is injured in these or other situations as a result of unsafe premises, he or she may be owed financial compensation from the property owner or manager.
