Albany Premise Liability Attorneys
Imagine you’re walking through a coffee shop to meet with a friend and suddenly you trip on a loose board in the hardwood flooring and fall. Or, you’re shopping for groceries after work and slip on a wet spot on the linoleum. Accidents like these happen to unsuspecting people every day, and when they are caused by the property owner’s negligence or irresponsibility, the law of premises liability applies. Premises liability law is designed to protect patrons by holding property owners accountable for maintaining a safe environment.
There are various circumstances that might cause a premises liability situation, including;
- Slipping on wet, greasy, oily, or icy surfaces
- Tripping over uneven flooring, torn carpeting, small steps, trash, etc.
- Accidents caused by failure to repair or adequately maintain premises
- Accidents that occur as a result of unsafe construction sites
- Insufficient postings or lack of signs warning of a potentially unsafe condition
