Under the premises liability law, any condition that is unsafe and could have reasonably been prevented by a property owner or manager is grounds for a premises liability lawsuit if it caused an injury to someone else. Common premises liability claims are as follows:

  • Defective conditions (such as broken stairs)
  • Faulty construction
  • Lack of warning signs for any dangerous areas or conditions
  • Poor lighting
  • Uneven walking surfaces (such as floors, carpets, or sidewalks)
  • Unmarked wet floors
  • Unsafe food products
  • Workplace injuries (includes construction accidents)
