Premises liability refers to accidents or injuries that occur on the property of someone else, usually because of a hazardous condition or lax security. Injuries that fall under this category can be sustained in public or private places, such as buildings, construction sites, and parking lots.
Under state and federal law, property owners are obligated to keep their premises safe. When they fail to do so, innocent people can suffer life-altering personal injuries.
