The term "premises liability" refers to the legal responsibility one party owes to another for negligence-related injuries that occur on his or her property. The property in question may be commercial, residential, public or private and can include department stores, gas stations, business parking lots, city streets, school playgrounds and other areas where the public is provided access.
Significant injuries - such as brain damage or spinal cord injuries - can result from a wide range of premises-related accidents. If dangerous property conditions and subsequent injuries were caused by negligence on the part of a property owner or property manager, you may have the right to financial compensation for your lost wages, medical expenses, loss of companionship or other damages.
