Premises Liability

 

Landlords, employers, elevator companies, and mass transit authorities can all be responsible for injuries on property or equipment they operate. Every year, people are injured in accidents that occur when premises are not properly maintained and managed.

 

  • Injuries can range from broken limbs to more severe brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, even death
  • It is estimated that more than 1 million people are injured annually in accidents in which they slip, trip or fall, resulting in about 17,000 deaths

 

Unsafe work conditions, wet or icy floors and sidewalks, inadequate lighting or poor maintenance can all be causes of so-called slip-and-fall accidents.
 

  • In 2012, the US Department of Labor reported that there were 668 work-related deaths due to falls, slips, and trips
  • A study conducted by the University of Florida found that back injuries were the most common injuries from slips and falls, accounting for about 1/3 of the total
  • More than 1/3 of slip and fall injuries were to joints, including the wrist, elbow, shoulder, ankle, knee, and hip

 

People are also injured or die from injuries related to a variety of other premises, including private and public property, such as nursing homes.
 

In many of these cases for both workplace and non-workplace slip-and-fall injuries, the employers or property owners may have been negligent in their responsibility to provide a safe jobsite or premises. That could make them liable for damages.
