Premises liability categories and their significance

When a property owner or manager does not have safety measures in place, or management does not enforce the set measures, it can create dangerous conditions. For those who suffer an injury while on a property due to dangerous conditions, it may be possible to seek compensation. 

What happens after a commercial property slip-and-fall accident?

Under the theory of premises liability, a property owner may be legally liable for a Hoosier's injuries following a slip-and-fall accident on their property. This applies not only to residential property owners, but also to commercial property owners, such as those who own grocery stores or other retail stores.

Was waterpark death the result of dangerous property conditions?


Hoosiers may seek out the adventures of waterparks over the course of the hot summer season, as many families do. Unfortunately, what should have been a fun family day at the waterpark for one Kansas family ended in tragedy, following a deadly accident. A 10-year-old boy died while riding on the world's tallest water slide, called the Verrückt, at Schlitterbahn waterpark in Kansas City.

How should property owners protect visitors to their pools?


As Indiana weather heats up, some residents are undoubtedly preparing for summer and time spent with family and friends around a backyard pool. While this should be an enjoyable experience, it is important to be aware that pools also present the possibility of real danger. A negligent property owner may allow hazardous conditions to exist that ultimately lead to tragic accidents. These property owners may be found responsible under the theory of premises liability for conditions that are unsafe.

Attorney aids Indianans following slip-and-fall accidents


When an Indianan slips and falls, his or her first concern may be about seeking prompt medical care. This is particularly important if he or she has suffered significant injuries. After obtaining medical care, a person's attention may turn to the reason for his or her slip-and-fall accident. Often, a slip-and-fall accident occurs due to a property owner's negligence in maintaining safe premises. Whether due to inadequate lighting or a wet floor, hazardous conditions can be dangerous for customers and other visitors.

How does an Indianan establish fault in a slip-and-fall case?


There are many ways that an Indianan might slip and fall on another's property. Whether due to a wet floor or lack of repair, there may be hazardous conditions that are not readily visible to an Indianan that lead to a dangerous fall. When an Indiana resident is injured in a slip-and-fall accident, he or she may choose to pursue a personal injury lawsuit to recover damages from the negligent property owner. It can be helpful for the victim of a slip-and-fall accident to understand how a court will determine that someone else is legally responsible for the victim's injuries.

Crash victims file premises liability suit after music festival


Indiana residents may envision a music festival as an event at which attendees can hear live music, enjoy good company and have a fun time. They likely do not envision an event at which attendees may be hit by a car in the middle of a crowd while enjoying the festivities.

Property conditions affect premises liability cases in Indiana


Premises liability turns on the idea that when a person enters another's property, he or she may reasonably expect that he or she will not become injured. In Indiana this concept means that a property owner has a responsibility to maintain an environment that is relatively safe. When a person becomes injured on another's Indiana property, however, many questions may arise, particularly if an injury stems from dangerous cold weather conditions.

Hazardous winter conditions abound in Indiana


It is the season for more than just holiday parties and gift giving. Unfortunately, it may also be the season for outdoor hazards that lead to slip-and-fall accidents. It is important for Indiana residents to know what types of dangerous property conditions to be on the lookout for as the weather turns colder.
