What Is Premises Liability?
Under the law, owners of establishments are responsible for ensuring that the premises are reasonably safe and secure from anticipated dangers. These cases normally result from criminal acts such as shootings, fights, stabbings, or other physical violence (including sexual assault), where severe injury or death occurs when an establishment owner fails to implement adequate safety measures. The establishment owner and those contractors charged with security may be held responsible for the injuries suffered by individuals or groups of individuals on the premises. While the laws vary from state to state, Beasley Allen’s premises liability lawyers are actively investigating and litigating these cases where severe injury or death results.
Premises Liability May Include:
- Untrained or under-trained security guards
- Inadequate traffic control devices to slow traffic and protect pedestrians
- Lax security protocols
- Absent or inadequate recording devices such as security cameras
- Foreseeability – failure to address potential causes of harm when establishment owners know or have reason to know the danger exists
