Types of Premises Liability Claims

People sustain injuries on commercial or residential properties for many reasons, from falling tree branches and unsafe staircases to merchandise obstructing a walkway or aisle in a retail store.

These are some of the most common situations that could give rise to a valid premises liability claim:

  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Wet or slippery walkways or surfaces
  • Electric shock from exposed wires
  • Elevator malfunctions
  • Fires
  • Exposure to hazardous or toxic chemicals
  • Falling objects, like tree branches or ceilings
  • Structural defects in a building or walkway
  • Injuries at amusement parks

While each of these situations may sound like an obvious case of negligence, victims may not always have adequate grounds for filing a premises liability claim. That is why you need to speak with a qualified attorney if you have been injured on someone else's property.

Our Savannah premises liability lawyers are well-versed in the legal requirements for a legitimate premises liability claim. We will thoughtfully review the details of your claim and inform you of all of the legal options available.

If you were a victim of negligence, our skilled attorneys know how to prove that a property owner or business owner did not uphold their responsibility to provide a safe environment for patrons of their establishment.

The Nye Law Group's Savannah premises liability lawyers will aggressively pursue all of the compensation you deserve to help you recover from the damages you have suffered.

Negligent Security Claims

You may also be able to file a premises liability lawsuit if you are the victim of a crime on another person or entity's property, particularly at a concert hall, parking garage or other public space.

The law requires property owners to take adequate steps to protect visitors from forseeable hazards, including crimes, such as kidnapping, robbery and assault. That is why property owners must make sure their property is not poorly lit, there is adequate security and visitors are warned about potential problems.

When property owners do not fulfill their obligations, they can be held liable for the injuries you suffer.

If you have a valid premises liability claim, our attorneys will fight for all of the compensation that you are entitled. If it is necessary to take your case to court to achieve justice, we have the resources and the capability to do so.

Filing a Premises Liability Claim

Your ability to file a claim for premises liability is based on how you were classified when you entered someone else's property. The law classifies people entering a property in one of three ways:

Trepasser: This applies to those who enter a property without permission from the owner or person occupying the property. If the owner did not give the trespasser permission to enter their property or they were not aware of the trespasser, the owner usually does not have a legal obligation to warn the trespasser about any hazards that could cause injury.

This classification would apply to a solicitor who walks onto your front yard or other part of your property to promote a product or ask for a donation.

Invitee: The law considers you an invitee if you had explicit permission from a property owner to enter their property. You are considered an invitee when you enter a retail store, meaning that the owner or manager of the store must maintain a safe environment and warn you about any potential dangers.

Another example of an invitee is someone who enters a property with the understanding that they will provide the property owner with a commercial benefit, which might include home repair or renovation.

Licensee: This designation is similar to invitees, except visitors to the property are not there for commercial purposes. Licensees could include friends, neighbors and family members who were invited into someone’s home. In these situations, the property owner must warn licensees about anything that could cause them injury.

Our Savannah premises liability lawyers are well versed in the details of these classifications and the other laws governing premises liability. We will utilize all of our knowledge and experience when handling your claim so you have the best chance to recover fair compensation for your injuries.
