St. Louis Premises Liability Lawyer
Understanding the Scope of Liability
Premises liability law refers to people who own or manage properties such as homeowners and landowners, managers of commercial and government buildings, and their responsibilities when a third party sustains injury while on the property. Injuries sustained, however, an act of negligence by those responsible for the property must be the cause of the accident. Some examples of negligence include broken steps and rails, icy sidewalks, wet floors, improper signage, inadequate lighting, negligent security and falling objects.
Slips and falls are common reasons to file a premises liability claim. Victims slip on icy sidewalks or wet floors, sustaining all sorts of injuries including concussions, broken bones, sprains and traumatic
brain injuries. If you or someone you know has recently suffered an injury due to negligence on someone else's property, it is important that you contact a
