Personal Injury Premises Liability

What should I do if I have been injured on unsafe property owned by an individual or business?

Property owners have a responsibility to keep their properties safe and secure to protect people from serious injury. Far too often, people are seriously injured at apartment complexes, rental properties, grocery stores, retail stores and other places because there were unsafe conditions on the property.

If you have been injured on property owned by a business, landlord, private homeowner or other entity, contact Langdon & Emison for a free case evaluation. We will evaluate your potential claim at no upfront cost to you to determine whether you have a premises liability claim.

What is Premises Liability?

A premises liability lawsuit holds a property owner responsible for causing a person’s injuries because the owner neglected the property or failed to maintain it in a safe manner. Common premises liability cases include:

  • Owners of apartment complexes, rental properties or houses fail to maintain safe and sound structures, such as stairs.
  • Apartment complexes and hotels provide inadequate security, leading to injuries from battery, sexual assault or gunshots.
  • Residences fail to test and maintain critical equipment such as fire detectors and call-for-aid systems when elderly residents need emergency assistance.
  • Utility companies fail to maintain safe power lines or provide adequate training to utility workers, resulting in electrical shock injuries or electrocutions.

Slip and Fall Cases

A “slip and fall” is one of the most common types of premises liability cases. The slip and fall lawyers at Langdon & Emison will investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident to determine who may be legally responsible for your injuries. Common conditions that lead to slip and fall accidents include:

  • Unsafe stairs.
  • Wet or slippery floors or other surfaces.
  • Work equipment in public areas that created an unnecessary hazard to others.
  • Deteriorated or uneven sidewalks and parking lots.
  • Poor lighting.
  • Merchandise falling from shelving.
  • Torn carpeting or unbalanced flooring.
  • Defective furniture.
  • Potholes in parking lots or other public areas.
  • Dog bites.
