Common Causes of Premises Liability Accidents

The most common type of premises liability accident is a slip and fall accident. However, there are many issues which may be considered a dangerous hazard in a premises liability case. Premises liability laws can apply to a wide range of situations, from being bit by a dog on the street to falling down in a bank or store. We work to prove that the property owner or manager was aware of the hazardous condition and failed to prevent the accident.

A few examples of common causes of premises liability accidents include:

  • Poor lighting
  • Wet floors
  • Potholes
  • Missing railings
  • Broken railings
  • Inadequate security
  • Icy sidewalks
  • Dangerous dogs
  • Broken staircases

What to Do After an Accident On Another's Premises

If you slipped and fell or have been otherwise hurt on someone else's premises, there are steps you can take to improve your claim. At Whiting Hagg Hagg Dorsey & Hagg, LLP, we understand that being injured often means receiving immediate medical care. However, if you are able to do so, you should report the fall to the company's owner or management, take notes, record all of the necessary information, and get witnesses' contact information. You should also seek medical attention even if your injuries do not immediately seem severe. Finally and most importantly, you should speak with a Rapid City premises liability lawyer as soon as possible.
