Premises Liability: Who Is Liable?

A premises liability lawsuit not only helps an injured person seek justice and compensation. It may also help prevent a similar accident from happening again.
Here are just a few situations or locations in which an injured person might have a premises liability case:

- Structural defects – like broken staircases, for example
- Insufficient or negligent security
- A sidewalk, parking lot or driveway covered with snow or ice
- Slippery floors
The person who bears responsibility in these instances varies. A premises liability case may be brought against the owner of a business or home, a contractor or subcontractor who fails to maintain a safe job site, or even local or state governments if the incident occurs on public property.
