All about premises liability litigation, and how we can help.

Greenville, NC Premises Liability Lawyer



You may feel embarrassed if you slip or fall while out in public. Believe it or not, this is one of the best outcomes you can hope for. Falls can, and often do, result in injuries that can sometimes be severe. When these occur at a location that someone else owns and operates, it may have been due to their negligence. 

Property owners (or non-owner residents) are responsible for maintaining a relatively safe environment so that people who come onto the property don’t suffer an injury. This responsibility is known as “premises liability,” which holds property owners and residents liable for accidents and injuries on their property. 

A premise liability claim may be based upon injuries sustained due to a result of: 

  • Wet and Unmarked Surfaces
  • Uncleared Snow and Ice
  • Outdated or Incorrect Electrical Wiring
  • Code Violations
  • Safety Violations
  • Haphazard Construction
  • Insufficient Lighting
  • Hazards Without Warnings
  • Insufficient Maintenance
  • Uneven Surfaces

Liability is determined by the laws and procedures of the state in which the injury occurred. In some states, the court will focus on the status of the injured visitor in determining liability. In other states, the focus will be on the condition of the property and the activities of both the owner and visitor. In most cases, the totality of the circumstances will be considered.
