Premises Liability

Representing the Injured After a Trip, Slip or Fall Accident

Premises liability deals with unsafe property conditions that result in an injury to a visitor to the property. When you enter a store, an office, a sports complex, a park or another business or government property, you reasonably expect it to be safe. In fact, the owners have a duty to maintain the property in good condition and to warn you of hazards. While the concept of premises liability law may seem straightforward, its application can be complex and nuanced depending on the facts of a particular case. Your right to collect damages for an injury you sustain on another person’s or corporation’s property is based on the doctrine of premises liability.

Hensley Cloninger & Greer, P.C., has more than three decades of experience in personal injury litigation. Our lawyers investigate the condition of the property at the time of your accident to determine whether the owner is at fault. We then collect evidence of dangers to prove negligence and build a strong claim for maximum possible damages.

Common Dangerous Premise Accidents

A very common type of premises liability case is the slip-and-fall accident involving a slippery substance on the defendant’s property. Another common type of premises liability is the trip-and-fall accident involving a permanent or fixed object, such as a crack, brick or functional item on the property. A trip, slip or fall can be serious, potentially resulting in debilitating injuries, such as spinal damage, herniated discs, head trauma, fractures or severe soft tissue injuries. 

Many trip, slip and fall cases are avoidable but for the negligence of the proprietor, for example:

  • Snow and ice on walkways and stairs
  • Slippery surfaces in swimming pool and recreation areas
  • Unsupervised pools and playgrounds
  • Broken railings on balconies and landings
  • Spilled liquids in grocery store aisles
  • Cracked sidewalks and pavement
  • Overstocked market shelves
  • Unmarked construction zones
  • Collapsing scaffolding
