If you were injured while visiting a place of business, you may be able to obtain compensation. Premises liability law generally holds property owners and possessors responsible for injuries that occur on their premises because the owner or possessor failed to make the property safe or failed to warn about dangers that they knew or should reasonably have known.
If a property owner neglects this responsibility and someone slips and falls, is bitten by a dog kept on the property, or is exposed to toxic materials like mold, asbestos, or lead, the property owner is responsible for any damages the visitor suffers. A property owner is also responsible for any unsafe conditions that could attract children, such as swimming pools and trampolines, as well as any damage to neighboring property that occurs because of the property owner’s action or neglect of conditions.
