    What Causes A Slip And Fall Or Premises Liability Injury

    Land owners/renters have the duty to maintain a safe property, and most premises liability injuries could be avoided if maintenance is performed properly.  The property owner/renter has the responsibility to repair or remove any hazard that could cause injury to others.  If the hazard cannot be repaired or removed, the owner/renter has  the duty to adequately warn others of the hazard to prevent injury.  Common causes of premises liability injuries include standing water or slippery floors, changes in flooring level or surface (such as changing from tile to carpet), uneven gravel or pavement, cracked or damaged sidewalks or walkways, broken or loose handrails, foreign objects in walkways, potholes or curbs, inadequate lighting, and faulty wiring.

    What Is A Premises Liability Injury Claim?

    • Trip and fall injuries caused by damaged walkways or stairs, or poor upkeep
    • Falling debris resulting in personal injury
    • Construction site injures, particularly involving persons other than workers
    • Inadequate security (lights, surveillance) resulting in an assault by a third party
    • Serious burns from fire or faulty wiring or plumbing defects
    • Workplace injuries causes by improper maintenance or other property issue
    • Nursing home negligence causing falls by a resident
    • Any other defect on property causing injury
    • Dangerous dogs or animals that cause injury

    FAQs

    What is a premises liabiltiy injury claim?

    Animal bite injuries are among the most tragic injuries we see – often leaving a victim with intense pain, permanent scars, and psychological trauma.  Even more tragic, children are frequent victims of animal attacks – especially dog bites.  Animal bite injury victims commonly suffer from bruising, lacerations and scarring.  They may need to take shots to prevent infection and may require ongoing medical treatment.  In Kentucky, victims of dog bites may be able to recover for injuries sustained by direct contact with the dog and those sustained in an effort to avoid the attack.  Dog bite injury cases fall under the umbrella of premises liability.
