Charlotte Premises Liability Attorney
Premises Liability Lawyer in Charlotte, NC
The phrase “premises liability” is a legal term that refers to the responsibility that property owners have to keep visitors reasonably safe from injury. All property owners are subject to this legal responsibility: commercial property owners, government landowners and private property owners, as well as those who manage property for others. If a person suffers an injury while on property owned by another, the property owner may be legally responsible to pay financial compensation. Should this sound like your situation, you need to reach out to a Charlotte, North Carolina premises liability lawyer as soon as possible.
Premises liability lawsuits include situations such as:
- A slip and fall accident caused by a spilled substance in a retail store
- A trip and fall accident caused by a broken stairway or unrepaired potholes in a store parking lot
- Injury caused by improperly stacked merchandise falling onto a customer
- An assault that could have been prevented if the store or apartment complex provided adequate security personnel or lighting
- An injury at a swimming pool or playground caused by damaged equipment or inadequate supervision
In most, but not all, premises liability lawsuits, the plaintiff must show evidence that the property owner knew about the dangerous condition, or should have known about the dangerous condition, but did not make repairs or remedy the dangerous condition in a timely manner. Also, the property owner may be liable for failing to warn about a hazard about which the property owner knew or should have known.
