3 examples of premises liability claims

At Rosenthal & Kreeger, LLP, we represent Roseville residents in their premises liability claims. Usually, when plaintiffs hear the word "premises liability," they think of dangerous property conditions that result in a slip, trip or fall, but this category of personal injury law is much broader than slip-and-fall cases alone.

Let's take a look at three examples of premises liability situations that will better illuminate the full scope of this legal category:

-- Negligent security issues: When you enter a property, the owner of the property needs to make sure that you're safe -- and not just from cracks in the sidewalk. The owner needs to make sure that you're safe from criminal activity. If you're walking to your vehicle in a shopping center parking lot, for example, the property owner should provide security to watch out for violent criminals who could attack you.

-- Animal attack cases: The owner of an animal can be liable in cases where the animal attacks an unsuspecting victim. In some cases, the animal owner's homeowners' insurance policy may be on the hook to pay for injuries stemming from an animal attack.

-- Collapsing balconies: During a party or celebration, it's not unheard of for a Roseville home or apartment to fill up with guests. If too many guests venture out onto a balcony and it collapses, the property owner could be liable.

The above examples are just a handful of possible premises liability claims to illustrate who all-consuming this category of the law can be.
