Premises liability lawyers are personal injury attorneys who deal with cases such as slip and fall, animal bites, and construction injuries. These attorneys focus their practices on the nuances of property owner responsibility. Through extensive practice, a premises liability attorney is best able to represent the interests of someone who has been injured while on another person’s property.

Premises liability is founded on the principle that property owners are obligated to reasonably ensure the safety of other persons on their properties. A premises liability lawyer seeks to establish a clear link between the property owner’s actions (or lack of action) and any injuries suffered by the plaintiff.
Although slip and fall cases are some of the more common lawsuits arising from premises liability, other incidents can form the basis of a property liability lawsuit. Dog bites, construction accidents that occur on a property, and even injuries caused by falling debris are examples of accidents that can trigger a premises liability lawsuit.
Building a Winning Premises Liability Lawsuit
Two basic elements must be proven for a premises liability judgment in favor of the plaintiff: presence of a dangerous condition and property owner knowledge of the dangerous condition.
Establishing the existence of a dangerous condition in court is done through evidence. Photographs, reliable testimony, and other types of evidence are presented to convince a judge or jury that a dangerous condition is clearly present.
Proving that a property owner had knowledge of a dangerous condition can be a challenging aspect of a premises liability lawsuit. An experienced premises liability lawyer understands the subtleties required to legally prove that an owner is indeed aware of a dangerous condition on his or her property and chose to ignore his or her responsibility.
As part of building a winning lawsuit, premises liability attorneys will also demonstrate the consequences of property owner negligence to the greater community. If a property owner has been thoroughly derelict in his or her duty to keep a property safe, a premises liability lawyer may press for punitive damages.
