What are Common Hazards?
Anything from a loose cable to an unfilled hole could be considered a hazard in a premises liability case. Some of the most common hazards to look out for include:
- Unmarked wet floors
- Poor lighting
- Open wells
- Open drainage ditches
- Missing or broken railings
- Loose roofing materials
- Inadequate security
- Icy pavement or sidewalks
- Dog bites
- Dead trees or branches
- Dangerous pets
- Broken ladders or staircases
In order to file a file a premises liability lawsuit, you need to be able to prove a few things including that you didn’t enter the property illegally and that the property owner reasonably could have known about the hazard before you were injured. Some temporary hazards like a liquid spill can become more complicated – how long was the spill left uncleaned, and is it a recurring issue in that area? Premises liability law can be complicated, but an experienced attorney can help you build a case that will put you in the best position possible to secure the compensation you deserve.
