What Is Premises Liability Law?
Businesses and homeowners in North Carolina are responsible for keeping their property in a reasonably safe condition for invited guests. If you are injured due to a dangerous or defective property condition, the owner may be liable for all of the damages you suffer.
Examples of dangerous or defective property conditions include:
- Slippery floors
- Stairs with missing handrails or uneven steps
- Decks with rotting wood
- Cracks or holes in sidewalks or floors
- Untrimmed shrubs that limit visibility at an intersection
- Misplaced items or debris that present a tripping hazard
- Swimming pools with unlocked gates or missing covers
- Missing warnings
- Hotels with inadequate security
If you are injured due to a dangerous condition on another person’s property, you may think that the property owner’s insurance would readily pay for your damages. Unfortunately, most insurance companies refuse to pay anything unless you can prove negligence on the part of the property owner. It usually takes an attorney’s help to document your damages and prove liability for your personal injury claim.
