Establishments most-likely to be in the middle of a premises liability case

By: Darrell Castle

Are you a naturally-clumsy person who’s prone to fall up the stairs or trip over your foot? If so, there are some places you may want to avoid – however the problem is that these places are popular and places you probably want to go!

  • hotels

  • motels

  • apartment buildings

  • shopping centers

  • retail stores

  • sports stadiums

  • restaurants

  • bars 

  • movie theaters

What do all of these places have in common? They’re everyday, and some necessary, locations that have a lot of foot traffic! However, they’re also places that are more likely to find themselves defending premises liability cases, according to Legal Examiner.

It can be relatively-easy for a landlord, manager or owner to find himself or herself in the middle of a premises liability case – all it takes is a little negligence and an unfavorable situation.

Trash on the ground…a loose nail in a stair rail…a spilled drink…all of these factors and more are problems that come with heavy foot traffic mixed with wear and tear of an establishment. But, if left untreated, it becomes negligence, and if that negligence leads to an injury, it becomes a lawsuit.

Given the right circumstances, a lawsuit may be justified. Managers and landlords have a duty to keep their customers, clients and tenants safe. If you’re a person who’s been injured due to someone else’s failure to keep his or her property safe, you deserve compensation for damages – medical bills, lost wages from time off work, pain, suffering and more.

If you think you have a premises liability case, you need an attorney you can trust – one who’ll fight for the compensation you deserve. You need an attorney you can get to know and talk to. You need an experienced personal injury attorney and Darrell Castle & Associates has a team of them.
