Types of Premises Liability Claims

Published on October 16, 2023

Recognizing the importance of premises liability and how to avoid injury when on someone’s property can not only protect you from harm but also contribute to a safer environment for all. Knowing how to identify potentially dangerous situations and taking steps to protect oneself can significantly reduce the risk of injuries and potential legal complications. This guide to premises liability will help individuals navigate their surroundings with caution, make informed decisions, and take appropriate precautions when encountering hazardous conditions.

What is premises liability?

Premises liability is a legal concept that holds property owners responsible for maintaining safe conditions on their premises and protecting visitors from potential harm. Whether it’s a commercial establishment, residential property, or public space, understanding premises liability is crucial for everyone.

The regulations governing premises liability mandate that the owners of any given property have a duty of care to those who are on their property. In both public and private spaces, it is necessary that sufficient action is taken to provide for the safety of visitors and other guests. This can include maintaining cracks in a sidewalk to prevent someone from tripping, or placing a sign alerting customers that a floor is slippery.

What is the difference between premises liability and personal liability?

Premises liability and personal liability are two distinct legal concepts that address different aspects of responsibility and accountability.

Premises liability primarily focuses on the duty of property owners to maintain safe conditions on their premises for visitors or customers. It arises when an individual is injured due to a dangerous condition on someone else’s property. In premises liability cases, the property owner or occupier may be held legally liable for the injuries sustained by the injured party if negligence or a failure to exercise reasonable care can be established.

On the other hand, personal liability refers to an individual’s legal responsibility for their own actions and behaviors that cause harm to others or their property. It encompasses a broad range of situations where an individual’s actions or omissions directly lead to injury, such as an automobile accident caused by reckless driving or a physical altercation resulting in harm. In personal liability cases, the individual who caused the harm is held accountable for their actions, and they may be required to compensate the injured party for the damages incurred.

While premises liability focuses on the duty of property owners to maintain safe conditions, personal liability centers on an individual’s direct responsibility for their actions. Understanding these distinctions is essential to navigate legal matters accurately and determine the appropriate course of action when seeking compensation or defending against claims of liability.

5 examples of premises liability

Examples of premises liability.

Premises liability encompasses a wide range of scenarios in which property owners or occupiers may be held responsible for injuries or accidents that occur on their premises. These cases can arise from various hazardous conditions or negligent actions. The following five common examples of premises liability, highlight the importance of recognizing these potential dangers and taking appropriate precautions to protect oneself.

1. Slip-and-fall accidents

Unfortunately, there is a large percentage of individuals who suffer slip-and-fall accidents due to the negligence of property owners. For that reason, it is crucial to understand the safety standards business owners are required to adhere to in case you suffer a devastating fall.

A person’s injury qualifies as a slip-and-fall incident if they slip and sustain injuries on someone else’s property. In terms of legal cases, slip-and-fall incidents generally fall under premises liability and typically occur on property that is owned and maintained by someone else. When a property owner fails to maintain their property, and injuries occur, those harmed are able to file legal claims against the property owner.

Examples of unsafe conditions that lead to slip-and-fall accidents

Premises liability cases stemming from slip, trip, and fall accidents, occur when property owners or custodians fail to fulfill their duty in maintaining a safe environment. While many property owners prioritize maintenance and upkeep, some may exhibit carelessness or negligence.

To establish a property owner’s negligence, the plaintiff must demonstrate that they either created an unsafe condition, had knowledge of the condition’s danger but neglected to address it, or should have reasonably discovered and rectified the hazard before the accident occurred.

  • Neglected hazard. A neglected hazard is a situation where an obvious hazard to people’s safety is neglected over a significant period of time. Examples can include a loose floor tile, unfenced construction site, or uneven pavement and pot-holes.
  • Potential hazard. Not only do property owners and custodians need to be aware of existing hazards, but they also have to ensure potential hazards are not needlessly created. Examples of potential hazards can include not putting enough trash bins in a large traffic area, or a sloping surface in a parking lot that is prone to accumulating patches of ice.

How long after an accident do you have to file a slip-and-fall claim?

Before filing a legal claim, it is imperative that you understand the filing requirements in the state in which you were injured. Being prepared ahead of time will ensure you are able to file a claim and get the compensation you rightfully deserve.

The amount of time a person has to file a legal claim in a slip and fall case varies depending on where they live. The states of Kentucky and Louisiana provide only a one-year statute of limitations for individuals interested in filing a legal claim.

States with a two year statute of limitations include:

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Delaware
  • Georgia
  • Hawaii
  • Idaho
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Iowa
  • Kansas
  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • North Dakota (for wrongful death only)
  • Pennsylvania
  • Texas
  • Virginia
  • West Virginia.

States with a three-year statute of limitations include:

  • Arkansas
  • Connecticut
  • DC
  • Maryland
  • Michigan
  • Mississippi
  • Montana
  • New Hampshire
  • New Mexico
  • New York
  • North Carolina
  • Rhode Island
  • South Carolina
  • South Dakota
  • Vermont
  • Washington
  • Wisconsin.

States with a four-year statute of limitations include:

  • Florida
  • Nebraska
  • Utah
  • Wyoming

The state of Missouri provides a five-year statute of limitations while those living in Maine, Minnesota, and North Dakota have up to six years to file. Individuals who live in Oregon have up to ten years after their incident to file a legal claim against the at-fault party.

What types of compensation can be recovered from a slip-and-fall claim?

Victims of slip-and-fall accidents often deal with excruciating pain and suffering. In many cases, they are required to go through extensive medical treatment. In addition to dealing with the costs for treatment, victims are often forced out of work due to their injuries.

For those reasons, individuals file slip-and-fall lawsuits against liable property owners to obtain financial reimbursements for various damages incurred from their accidents. Typically, those harmed can obtain restitution for:

  • Medical expenses. Victims are able to obtain compensation for all past, current, and future expenses for treatments necessary to address the injuries sustained in the slip-and-fall incident. This compensation covers all doctor visits, surgeries, hospital stays, exams, therapy, medications, medical equipment, and a variety of medical costs incurred.
  • Lost wages. Victims who have to take time off work for their recovery, appointments, or any other reason related to their incident can obtain restitution to cover the lost wages incurred.
  • Lost earnings. This type of award is available for victims who are forced out of work indefinitely for their injuries. Individuals who are no longer able to work can get restitution for the amount of money they would have earned over their career had they been able to continue working.
  • Pain and suffering. Courts recognize that slip-and-fall injuries can have a substantial impact on the health and wellbeing of a victim. Quite often, injuries and accidents cause sufferers to experience post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and various other mental health symptoms. Courts are able to award compensation to victims based on the impact their injuries have on their lives.
  • Punitive damages. In cases of extreme neglect, courts can award punitive damages to victims. These are not based on any type of loss in particular. Instead, they are used to punish the negligent property owner.

Being aware of what to expect in a slip-and-fall legal claims process is only the first step. It is crucial for those harmed to have adequate legal representation to help them with their slip-and-fall claim. Working with a team of reputable slip-and-fall lawyers will ensure you are in the best possible position to win your legal claim against a negligent business owner.

2. Dog bite accidents

Dog bites happen all the time in the United States, with a staggering 4.7 million happening every year. Out of these attacks, around 800,000 require some kind of medical treatment. With 2,400 dog bites each day and one happening about every 36 seconds overall, the numbers add up to around one in every 69 Americans being injured in a dog bite attack. Children are particularly vulnerable with over 50% of all dog bite victims being children, and a greater number of children have to seek medical treatment for these attacks.

Whenever a dog attacks you or a loved one, even if the owner is a close friend, you can potentially hold the owner of the animal liable for these attacks due to their failure to adhere to a duty of care. If you or a loved one has been injured by a dog bite, call our law offices at 877-917-5250 to discuss your case with a qualified legal professional today.

Who is legally and financially responsible for dog bite attacks?

When you are bitten by a dog, you are likely not expecting it. These attacks are sudden and can leave long lasting impacts on part of the victim, such as significant injuries, costly medical expenses, and even permanent disfigurement. In many cases, victims may be able to seek financial compensation with the help of an experienced dog bite attorney.

Some states practice strict liability, meaning that there is no need to prove fault on part of the owner because they are automatically responsible when their dog attacks another person or harms them in any way. In states without strict liability, plaintiff’s may have to go through more effort in order to establish beyond a reasonable doubt that the owner had knowledge of their animal’s aggression toward others.

There are several possible avenues to explore when seeking compensation for a dog bite injury:

The dog owner

In many cases, the owner of the dog can be held liable for damages resulting from a dog bite attack. In many states, the legal theory of strict liability means that owners may be automatically held responsible for any aggressive acts of their animal. However, in other states that do not practice strict liability, you will likely have to prove that the owner had prior knowledge of the dog’s aggressive tendencies. In certain states, the “one-bite law” states that if a dog has previously attacked someone, the owner would be held liable if it happens again.

The insurance provider

Many times in cases involving dog bite attacks, the owner’s insurance provider will cover the damages resulting from the incident. Similar to other personal injury lawsuits involving slip-and-falls or car crashes, the provider of the owner’s home insurance policy will pay for the costs of your treatment and expenses up to the set limit on the given insurance policy.

The limits for these policies are usually set anywhere from $100,000 to $300,000, depending on the individual’s policy. The insurance company will likely want you to provide proof of the extent of your injuries and that the owner’s negligence directly resulted in the incident itself. This can be accomplished through the state’s dog bite or negligence statute.

The municipality

In certain cases involving dog attacks, the municipality can be liable for injuries sustained from dog bites under the special duty rule. This regulation establishes that it is the role of the municipality to enforce animal control provisions.

Failure to do so would be a breach of this duty of care owed to the plaintiff. When an animal has a known track record of aggressive behavior, it is the duty of the city government to take actions against the animal and the owner in order to provide for the safety of the general public.

Failure to do so could mean that the city is liable for your injuries, given that the dog has acted aggressively in the past. In these cases, the city would assume liability for your injuries due to their own inaction and would cover your damages due to the attack.

Regulations that help prevent injuries from dog bites

While most dog owners utilize proper safety techniques, such as keeping their animals restrained as needed, owners can be negligent at times. To keep people safe from dogs, various ordinances have been enacted that address negligent or reckless behavior by owners of dangerous dogs. It is important that dog owners understand these rules and how to follow them. In addition to incurring fines or imprisonment, violation of any of these rules that also involved a bite could mean the victim is entitled to compensation.

Dog leash laws.

While there is no state law requiring dogs to be restrained, most cities require every dog to be confined on your property or on a leash. Dog parks are among limited exceptions, depending on the city you are in. Some city ordinances allow dogs to be off-leash if they are in the “immediate control of its handler.” It is recommended that all dog owners keep their animals on a leash, both to stay in compliance with the law and to be safe. In most jurisdictions, having a fence that is strong enough and high enough to keep a dog confined is enough to be in compliance with the law.

Vaccinations and pet licensing

In most cities, all domestic dogs and cats must be vaccinated against the rabies virus by the time the animal is four months old and at regular intervals thereafter. Depending on the city, pet owners are required to obtain a license stating the animal has had a rabies vaccination from a licensed veterinarian within a specified period of time (typically 120 days). Licenses typically expire based on the expiration date of the rabies vaccine the animal received.

Number of pets and standards of care

Each city will have different laws regulating how many dogs a person has and how they can be treated. An adult dog is defined as any canine over the age of six months. Owning too many dogs can result in a fine of up to $200. It is also illegal to abandon animals, fight them, be cruel to them or allow them to chase vehicles or people. Pet owners are required to clean up pet waste on private and public property, including yards, parks, sidewalks, and trails.

What to do when you see a dangerous dog

A “dangerous dog” is defined as one that, when unprovoked, has aggressively attacked and caused serious injury or death of a human being or a domestic animal. In some states, owners of “dangerous dogs” are even required to abide by specific regulations to ensure the safety of humans and other animals. These regulations include:

  • Dangerous dogs must be registered with the state
  • Owners of dangerous dogs must carry liability insurance of at least $50,000
  • Dangerous dogs must be confined indoors or confined outdoors in a secured, fenced-in pen or structure that prevents entry by children
  • When outside, dangerous dogs must be muzzled and restrained with a chain or leash by a person over the age of 16
  • Owners of dangerous dogs must post clearly visible warning signs that alert people and particularly children of the presence of a dangerous dog on their property

Dogs can act in unpredictable ways, especially around other dogs. If a dangerous dog attacks or behaves aggressively toward your dog, take these steps:

  1. Remove your dog from the situation. If your dog can walk, allow him to do so. If he is unable to walk, cautiously carry him. Make sure your dog is evaluated by a licensed veterinarian
  2. Gather as much information as you can on the aggressive pet and its owner. If the attack happened on the pet owner’s property, their homeowner’s insurance may cover some of the medical costs of the bite.
  3. Report the dog to animal control. Because animal control is required to keep records of all aggressive dog attacks, the report could initiate a conversation that prevents an even bigger tragedy in the future.
  4. Contact an attorney. A dog bite attorney can help you navigate the legal process and regain lost compensation after the event. Damages for victims of dog-on-dog aggression can include reimbursement for veterinary bills, animal medications, as well as kennel or hospital fees. Damages for a deceased dog can include replacement cost for the deceased pet.

3. Swimming pool accidents

When warmer weather comes around, we see many property owners prepare their swimming pools for use. Sadly, there are a variety of injuries and damages that can occur in swimming pools. Sadly, the majority of accidents that occur are due to the swimming pool negligence of the property owner. It is crucial for those injured to understand legal options that are available.

If you are unsure whether or not you have a feasible case, take the time to talk to the expert swimming pool accident attorneys at McIntyre Law, P.C.

Examples of pool equipment that can cause injuries

Pool equipment that can cause injuries.

When certain pool equipment is not installed correctly, or the components used are defective, it can result in serious injury of swimmers and possibly even death in certain cases. You should understand the potential hazards that are present in pools in order to protect the lives of you and your family members in the event of an Oklahoma pool accident.

  • Drains. Faulty drain covers, unsupervised swimming, and failure to inspect pools can make it more likely that someone can be injured or even killed due to drain entrapment. Many times, someone is injured because hair, body parts, or jewelry becomes stuck in a drain.
  • Wiring for lights. When pool light wiring is not installed properly, it can end fatally. These types of accidents involve the swimmer being electrocuted due to faulty wiring or improperly installed wiring used for pool lights, and these cases are on the rise in the United States.
  • Slides. If a pool slide is not properly maintained, or the owner of the pool is acting negligently, injuries can be caused when proper safety measures are not taken. If a proper warning is not provided to swimmers, or if someone falls or is injured when using a water slide, the owner of the property can possibly be held liable for the sustained injuries due to failure to inform guests or visitors of potential hazards.
  • Ladders. Above ground pool ladders are often made out of steel or aluminum, and when they are not designed adequately, can cause serious injuries to adults and children alike. These ladders have been known to cause deep lacerations and cuts as well as injuring of limbs and other ligaments that get caught in the rungs. Children are particularly susceptible to these kinds of injuries, especially when the ladder is particularly ill-designed.
  • Diving boards. Improper or reckless use, such as diving in shallow water or performing dangerous maneuvers, can lead to head, neck, or spinal injuries. Inadequate maintenance, such as worn or damaged boards, can also contribute to accidents, causing individuals to slip or lose their balance, resulting in falls and associated injuries.

Who can be held responsible for a swimming pool accident?

Liability for swimming pool accidents typically depends on premises liability laws in a given state. Private property owners are usually responsible for injuries sustained in pools located on their premises, while in apartment complexes, the property manager or owner can be held liable. Hotels and motels bear liability for injuries occurring in their pools, and government bodies responsible for public pools can be held accountable for failure to provide safety measures.

If you are injured in a pool, it is crucial that you take the steps necessary to protect your legal rights. These injuries are often debilitating and have long-term physical consequences that require extensive medical treatment to address. Victims who are injured in pool accidents can obtain compensation to help alleviate the costs for treatment, medical equipment, and various other damages resulting from the incident.

Understanding the liable party is crucial for any potential lawsuit seeking compensation for pool-related injuries. McIntyre Law, with over 84 years of experience, specializes in helping victims of pool accidents pursue full and fair compensation for medical treatment and related damages.

Tips for keeping children safe around swimming pools

Pools can be a source of great enjoyment and recreation, but they also pose certain risks, particularly for young children who may be more vulnerable to accidents. Taking proactive measures is of utmost importance to ensure their safety and provide peace of mind, consider implementing the following tips:

  • Establish ground rules with your child. This will help ensure they do not become the victim of a senseless accident.
  • Watch over your child without disruptions. Parents who are watching over their child should refrain from texting or reading while the pool is in use. Instead, keep your eyes on your child to ensure their safety. Although there are lifeguards on staff, there is always a possibility that an obstruction will block the lifeguard’s view of your child, which could be detrimental in case of an accident.
  • Use the buddy system. Taking this approach to protect your child will ensure someone is with them at all times. Having someone with your child who can personally watch them at all times will help alleviate any discomfort you feel from a crowded pool.
  • Prevent your child from diving into shallow parts of the pool. When one dives into a shallow body of water they have a very high risk of hitting the bottom head on and damaging either the vertebrae, ligaments, disks, spinal column or the spinal cord.

4. Negligent security

There are countless instances where people will utilize other people’s property. Whether a family is going to a theme park, visiting a restaurant, or attending an outdoor event, there are always risks that a crime will occur. When criminal activities cause injuries to guests, it is crucial for victims to know and understand their legal options.

When are business owners liable for criminal activity?

The level of responsibility a property owner maintains depends highly upon the type of guest on their property. Generally, there are three categories of guests. These categories include:

  • Invitees. Invitees are individuals who are invited onto a property and are the guests who are afforded the most protection. For homeowners, these could be guests they personally invited. Invitees are generally on a property for the benefit of a property owner.
  • Licensees. These individuals are also invited on to a property. The difference between an invitee and a licensee is that a licensee is generally on a property for their own amusement. For example, a licensee could be considered a guest at a party or even a family friend who is visiting. Licensees are also afforded legal protection from harm.
  • Trespassers. These individuals are those who enter upon property without an invitation and for no legitimate purpose. Individuals who are trespassers on a property are not generally provided any legal protection from harm. Property owners have no duty to ensure their premises are safe for a trespasser and they cannot be held liable for any injuries or damages sustained by uninvited guests.

When guests to a property are invitees or licensees, which are guests with permission to enter the property, the property owner has a duty to provide care and act in a reasonable manner to ensure they are safe from harm on their property. When property owners fail to do so, and guests are injured due to criminal activity, they can be held liable for damages incurred.

There are countless cases in which property owners are held liable for medical expenses, lost wages, and a variety of other damages incurred as the result of criminal activity. However, a property owner is not liable for damages unless it can be proven that the negligence of the property owner was the cause of the incident. Working with a reputable attorney will ensure you are able to get the justice you deserve for your injuries and damages.

Examples of negligent acts that can lead to criminal activity

There are numerous instances where a property owner can be held liable for injuries and damages incurred by a victim due to the actions of a third party. Some negligent acts property owners perform include:

  • Not property lighting an area. Inadequate lighting in parking garages, hallways, and other areas can increase the possibility for a crime to occur. Not only does lighting ensure guests are able to see where they are going, but it enables them to see potential dangers or dangerous people who may be lurking ahead. Property owners who do not provide adequate lighting in areas for guests can be held liable for any damages incurred due to the criminal acts of another person.
  • Providing inadequate security measures. Not having bouncers or an acceptable number of security guards on site can increase the chances of a person being injured by an unruly guest. Negligent security measures include not having enough security guards, not having enough cameras monitoring the property, and not performing screenings for weapons or other dangerous items on guests entering the premises. A lot of people file claims for inadequate security lawsuits when they are attacked or assaulted by individuals in poorly lit spaces and those areas without adequate monitoring.
  • Failing to survey the area and determine the crime level. This will help business owners plan security measures appropriate to protect their guests. A failure to adequately survey the area and determine the types of crimes that occur, how frequently they occur, and other important factors could be considered a negligent act that places a guest at risk of being injured.

What to do if you have been a victim of a crime on someone else’s property

How to build a case for an inadequate security lawsuit.

The following steps can help you begin building your case for an inadequate security lawsuit if you have been the victim of a crime on someone else’s private property.

  1. Report the incident to the police and the property owners. The first thing you should do is immediately alert the police and the business owners about the incident. The police will help document the scene, as well as your side of the story, and you need to let the owners of the property know that you have been harmed in some way.
  2. Seek immediate medical attention. Depending on the circumstances of the crime, you may need to seek immediate medical attention from a trusted and qualified medical physician. This will help establish that any resulting injuries from the crime were due to the incident, and not merely a pre-existing condition.
  3. Document the condition of the crime scene. Anytime you are involved in an accident, you should document the scene, and a crime scene is no exception. Use your phone to take pictures, gather contact information from potential witnesses, and document any sustained injuries as well. All this information can be potentially used as evidence if you decide to pursue a lawsuit.
  4. Demand copies of official security procedures. You need to demand that the business give you a copy of the official security procedures practiced at the location. If you were the victim of a crime on their property, it is likely the business did not comply with these procedures, giving you grounds for a lawsuit against the property owners.
  5. Contact an attorney as soon as possible. In order for a plaintiff to have a successful legal claim against a property owner, it is imperative for them to establish negligence. A qualified premises liability attorney can help you gather evidence and ultimately prove that the property owner had a duty of care to those visiting the property, that the property owner breached their duty of care, and that you suffered a physical or financial loss as a result.

5. Elevator accidents

Elevator accidents refer to incidents that occur within elevators, resulting in injuries or property damage. These accidents can take various forms, including slip and falls, entrapments, electrical malfunctions, door-related injuries, or sudden jolts. Elevator accidents are considered a form of premises liability because property owners or managers have a legal duty to ensure the safe operation and maintenance of elevators within their premises. If an accident occurs due to negligence in maintaining or operating the elevator, the property owner may be held liable for the resulting harm.

Statistics regarding elevator accidents in the United States highlight the significance of this issue. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there were an estimated 22,000 elevator and escalator-related injuries reported annually in the country. The CPSC further reported that between 2008 and 2018, elevator-related injuries resulted in an average of 30 fatalities per year. These statistics emphasize the importance of maintaining elevator safety standards and prompt responses to prevent accidents and protect individuals using elevators in public or private settings.

Common causes of elevator injuries

Elevator accidents can occur due to various factors, ranging from mechanical failures to human error. Identifying these causes is crucial in understanding the potential risks associated with elevators and taking appropriate precautions. Some common causes of elevator accidents include:

  • Mis-leveling. Mis-leveling happens when the elevator car does not align properly with the floor, leading to tripping hazards or dangerous gaps that can result in falls or injuries.
  • Improper speed. Elevators that travel at excessive speeds or experience sudden accelerations or decelerations can cause passengers to lose balance and suffer injuries.
  • Defective doors. Malfunctioning or defective elevator doors can unexpectedly close on passengers or fail to close properly, leading to entrapments, falls, or injuries.
  • Falls into elevator shafts. Accidents can occur when individuals fall into elevator shafts due to faulty barriers, inadequate maintenance, or human error.
  • Sudden jolts. Sudden jolts or abrupt stops can happen when elevators experience mechanical failures or power disruptions, potentially causing passengers to lose balance and sustain injuries.
  • Entrapments. Elevator entrapments occur when passengers become stuck inside a malfunctioning elevator, often due to power outages, mechanical issues, or faulty controls.

Understanding these causes of elevator accidents highlights the importance of regular maintenance, adherence to safety protocols, and prompt response to any signs of malfunction or potential hazards to ensure the safety of elevator users.

Who can be held responsible for an elevator accident?

In the event of an elevator accident, multiple parties may be held responsible, depending on the circumstances and factors contributing to the incident. These parties can include the elevator manufacturer, the elevator maintenance company, and the property owner or manager.

  • Elevator manufacturer. The elevator manufacturer may be held responsible if the accident resulted from a defect or flaw in the design or manufacturing of the elevator equipment. In such cases, the manufacturer may be liable for any injuries or damages caused by the defect.
  • Elevator maintenance company. The elevator maintenance company is responsible for ensuring the regular maintenance, inspections, and repairs of the elevator system. If the accident occurred due to inadequate maintenance or negligence on the part of the maintenance company, they may be held liable for any resulting harm.
  • Property owner or manager. The property owner or manager has a duty to maintain safe conditions on the premises, including the proper functioning of elevators. They may be held responsible for an elevator accident if it can be demonstrated that their failure to address known issues, provide necessary repairs, or comply with safety regulations contributed to the incident.

Determining the specific parties liable for an elevator accident requires a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident and the responsibilities of each party involved. It is important to consult legal professionals experienced in premises liability cases to understand the potential liability and seek appropriate legal remedies.
