Every year, many people are hurt while in someone else’s home or place of business. People may be injured on a flight of stairs, by a building defect, or by the intentional, criminal act of a third party. Premises liability is the area of the law that establishes guidelines regarding duties that a property owner or occupier has to protect entrants from dangerous conditions or defects on the property. Generally, the law provides that property owners must keep their premises reasonably safe for people who are on the property.
Some examples of premises liability are: Slip and fall, dog bite, poor security, and more. Contact Mr. Bergin to learn more or to speak to his office about your case.
