Premise liability occurs when a person is injured due to an accident which could have been avoided had the person charged with the due diligence required to protect the public fails to perform such due diligence.

Every accident that happens in and around a premises or property is considered as a type of premise liability. This includes:

  • Slip and fall accidents,
  • • Construction accidents,
  • • Dog bite accidents and
  • • Explosions and fire accidents.

    • 2. A licensee or lessee of the premises;
    • 3. A social guest of an apartment; or
    • 4. A trespasser in the premises.
