How Common Are Premises Liability Injuries?
Premises injuries happen in a variety of different ways. They can occur on:
- Private residence property
- Business property
- Government/public property
Property owners and their agents have a duty to protect the people who have the right to be there: invitees and licensees. Some of the most common premises liability cases include:
- Slip and fall incidents due to wet floor or sidewalk conditions, grease spills, leaks in a roof, etc.
- Tripping over low lying obstacles such as merchandise in store aisles, loose carpeting, cords on the ground, or tree roots.
- Being struck by objects in a store falling from shelves or displays.
- Falling down unsafe stairs that do not have adequate lighting or handrails.
- Stair or balcony collapses due to wood rot.
If you are injured on another person’s property, get medical treatment, document the scene and injuries with a camera, and report the incident to an employee. Remember, the statute of limitations to file most personal injury cases in California is two years from the date of the incident.
