Injured? Contact Utah’s Best Premises Liability Injury Attorney

Under premises liability, property owners can be liable for any injury or illness that takes place on their property due to negligence. There are few exceptions to the aforementioned, so premises liability can cover a vast multitude of cases. For a successful personal injury suit, it doesn’t matter what the direct cause of the injury actually was, all that matters is that the property owner’s negligence somehow contributed to a person’s injury. This is true for both commercial and residential properties. Though many property owners look for ways to eschew responsibility, it is their responsibility to make sure their property is safe for their guests.

Property owners are responsible for making sure that their property is adequately maintained. If there are structural faults in buildings on the property, they need to be remedied, or the property owner could risk being liable for damages their guests sustain. For example, if you know your back patio is at risk for collapsing, you are liable if the patio collapses on your guests at the family barbeque. This is because you knew, or reasonably should have known, that your back patio presented a danger.

Not only are property owners responsible for the buildings on their property, they’re also responsible for anything on their property that could be dangerous. This means that if a property owner has a pet that bites someone, the property owner is liable for the victim’s injuries. Or, if a person falls in a river on the property and drowns, the property owner may be liable if their negligence somehow contributed to a guest drowning. Under premises liability, a claim doesn’t have to involve a faulty structure, a dangerous animal, or a dangerous land formation. Property owners could even be found liable for an injury that was the result of an icy sidewalk.

Finally, property owners are required to take additional care in making sure their property doesn’t harbor any attractive nuisances and, if it does, they need to make sure that they aren’t easily accessible. An attractive nuisance is anything that might lure a child onto your property. Typically, an attractive nuisance represents a danger that a child is not readily able to anticipate. A good example of this is a trampoline or a dog. A child might come onto your property and jump on your trampoline. If the child were to fall off the trampoline and hurt themselves, the property owner may be liable because the child couldn’t understand the danger in the trampoline. Property owners have a higher duty of care toward children, even if the children are trespassingand children are almost never considered trespassers from a legal standpoint. So, if a child were to hurt themselves while jumping on a trampoline on someone else’s property, the property owner would be liable, even if the child was technically trespassing.
