What Is a Premises Liability Cause of Action?

A cause of action refers to a reason to bring a claim for damages against another party. In a premises liability case, the victim’s reason for bringing a claim is the unsafe property and the injuries it caused.

Most premises liability claims name the property owner as the defendant. It’s a property owner’s legal duty to maintain a premises that’s free from hazards, risks, and defects. The failure to maintain a safe property is negligence. A premises liability lawsuit in Arizona seeks to hold the at-fault property owner liable, meaning the defendant will have to pay for the victim’s losses.

The All-Too-Common Slip-and-Fall

We’ve represented clients in a wide range of premises liability disputes, but slip-and-fall injuries are the most common. The reasons for these injuries include:

  • Slipping on spilled water
  • Tripping on a poorly marked hazard such as a raised threshold
  • Unkempt property
  • Uneven pavement or flooring
  • Building code violations
  • Mis-leveled elevators or malfunctioning escalators

During a slip-and-fall claim, it will be your responsibility (or that of your attorney) to prove that a reasonable property owner would have addressed the hazard that caused your fall. This will establish the defendant’s liability for your slip-and-fall accident.

Negligent Supervision of Property

This type of claim applies to owners, occupants, or businesses that don’t take proper care to ensure the personal safety of guests. This type of negligence comes in different forms such as:

  • A victim is injured by another guest due to a lack of security
  • A victim is injured due to unsafe recreational equipment
  • A victim is bitten by the resident’s pet
  • A victim has injuries from an elevator, escalator, or stairwell accident
  • A victim drowns in an unsafe or unrestricted swimming pool
  • A victim is injured in a fire or flood
  • A victim has injuries from a dangerous or defective work environment

You may have grounds for a lawsuit after many types of accidents in Phoenix. Several circumstances could lead to a negligence claim against the owner or controller of a piece of property or building.

Common Premises Liability Injuries

Dangerous premises in Arizona could inflict a variety of serious injuries on a victim. Injuries sustained from a hazard on someone else’s property could cost thousands of dollars in medical expenses. It could also reduce your wages by forcing you to take time off work. Shapiro Law Team can accept premises liability claims in Maricopa County that involve injuries like:

  • Bone fractures
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Herniated disks

A serious injury deserves attention from a premises liability lawyer in Phoenix. Your lawyer won’t let you settle for less than your injury demands. A lawyer will make it easy to collect medical documents, records, x-rays, scans, test results, and other types of evidence to help you prove the extent of your injury to an insurance company or jury. Then, your lawyer will fight for maximum compensation for your damages.

Premises Liability and Apartment Injuries

Accidents and injuries while on a rental property could point to the liability of the owner. Your landlord, for example, could owe you compensation for an accident that occurred in your apartment. This could be the case if your injury arose because of a property defect a reasonable and prudent landlord should have prevented. For instance, if you have damages because of a maintenance problem your landlord knew or reasonably should have known about (e.g. a leaky pipe or mold), he or she could owe you for failing to remedy the issue on time.

The same could be true if you get injured while staying at a hotel or Airbnb. If the accident occurred because of a negligent failure on the property owner’s part, he or she could be liable for your hospital bills and other damages. If, however, you caused your own injuries by failing to uphold your end of a rental agreement, you may be partially responsible.
