Landowners, retailers, and business owners (and any business where customers come to shop) must use reasonable care in keeping the premises safe for its customers. Oftentimes referred to as “slip and fall”, these cases typically involve a customer who is injured on the premises of a business owner while browsing and/or shopping. Other premises liability cases involve negligent security such as criminal attacks in an apartment complex where little or no security was provided to protect the tenants of the apartments from crime and other perpetrators. Premises liability cases may involve defective equipment, improperly installed equipment and/or appliances, and/or defective construction of the entryways, exit ways, stairways and other places where business owners would reasonably expect a customer to walk when shopping at the business. Other premises liability cases are more complex, perhaps involving a hotel fire caused by defectively installed and/or improperly maintained equipment such as the appliances and/or heating and air conditioning units found in most any hotel room.As a victim of premises liability, you are most likely entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, lost earnings, and compensation for human pain and suffering related to physical and/or mental injury.
