Even though premises liability cases are often referred to as slip, trip, and fall cases, slips and falls are actually a type of premises liability case. Broadly speaking, premises liability cases involve injuries or deaths caused by negligence on a property or location owned by someone other than the victim.

twoThere are two primary conditions that determine whether an incident could be considered a premises liability case. The accident, injury, or death must occur on someone else’s property.

twoThere must be proof that the property manager or owner’s negligence caused the accident.

ThreeThe injured person’s representative must show that damages occurred due to the accident.



Determining Negligence 

Confirming that a claim is a premises liability case is one thing, but after that, you still have to prove the property owner or manager’s negligence caused the accident. 

Generally speaking, for an individual, company, or organization to be found negligent, your representation needs to prove that the land owner or manager had some duty to you, knew about a safety risk (or should have known about it), and should have made the hazard safe within a reasonable timeframe. 

In order to receive compensation for damages, you’ll also have to prove that the negligence caused the damages you claim. 

Premises liability cases have some other nuances that can make them more difficult than other personal injury claims. That is because oftentimes juries believe that both the defendant and the injured share fault for the accident. 

On most properties, you must be less than 50% responsible for an incident to receive compensation for damages. However, on select premises, like government facilities, you must have 0% fault to receive compensation. 

As you can tell, there are many nuances and conditions that can prove or disprove negligence. Having the right premises liability attorney on your side will ensure your claim is backed with the evidence and arguments needed to win the case.

Perhaps the most common example of a slip, trip, and fall case includes a store with slippery, wet floors and no “wet floor” signage to provide adequate warning. However, despite the way people talk about them, slip, trip, and fall cases are a type of premises liability case, but they’re not the only example of premises liability.

Workplace exposure to toxic chemicals, falling objects due to poor infrastructure, and more can fit into the premises liability claim category.
