Premises liability cases most often involve accidents that happen to residents of apartment buildings and other residential complexes.
The fault often lies with negligent owners, landlords and building managers who delay, or avoid making much-needed repairs to correct unsafe living conditions. Dangerous conditions such as uneven floor and pavements, broken sidewalks, snow and ice covered surfaces, defective elevators, broken door locks, broken steps, objects that fall from the roofs of buildings can lead to serious accidents.
Anyone responsible for the care and upkeep of a building including business owners, landlords, private property owners and managers, can be held liable for not providing a safe and secure environment for residents and guests.
Filing a premises liability claim in a timely manner is critical in instances where statutes of limitations apply. As such, the best thing for victims of premises liability to do is to speak with an experienced premises liability lawyer.
