Generally speaking, premises liability is based on the principle of negligence and proving liability is very essential to these types of claims. Liability is determined by the laws and procedures of the state in which the injury occurred. In some instances, the primary focus may be on the status of the injured visitor in order to determine liability. In other instances, the focus may be the activities of both the owner and visitor and the condition of the property. When you step onto someone’s property, you have a reasonable expectation that you will not be injured. Therefore, a property owner or the party responsible for the maintenance of the property may be held liable if you sustained injuries that were caused by a dangerous or unsafe condition on the property.
A common example of premises liability cases include those in which an individual is attacked or killed due to a property owner's failure to provide adequate lighting or security or warn individuals of foreseeable criminal activity at the property. Such negligence may occur at an apartment complex, hotel, nightclub, shopping center, or other commercial establishment.
