What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is a complex area of personal injury law that may hold a property owner or occupant responsible when a person is injured because of a hazardous condition on the land.
In the state of Tennessee, property owners hold a legal responsibility to make sure their premise is safe and secure. If any hazards arise, property owners must either fix the hazard or notify visitors of potential dangers. If a visitor is injured due to unsafe conditions that have not been acknowledged, the property owner can be responsible for both damages and losses. These cases are known as Premise Liability cases, and they can get extremely complicated. If you believe you have been injured due to unsafe conditions on a property, contact a Memphis premise liability lawyer to discuss your case.

What are Common Premises Liability Claims?
Premises liability claims involve injuries caused by dangerous conditions on property. While most premises liability claims involve slip-and-fall injuries caused by dangerous conditions, other claims may involve injuries caused by:
- Escalator and elevator incidents
- Pool accidents
- Inadequately stored merchandise in a store
- Unmarked changes in floor height
- Snow and ice accidents
- Criminal activity due to inadequate security
- Dog or other animal bites
Many times, premise liability cases come with unique issues and can involve related claims. For example, you may file a premise liability claim against a resort owner for failing to put locks on their doors, but also file a theft claim against the person who broke in and stole your purse. By contacting a Memphis premise liability lawyer, you can quickly determine who the responsible party is and if you can recoup damages.
PREMISE LIABILITY LAW
The law typically requires residential and business property owners to maintain premises in a condition that is reasonably safe for those lawfully entering the property. Most property owners are protected by insurance coverage, and insurance companies are experienced in defending premises liability claims to minimize their exposure to pay medical bills, loss of income, and damages for physical pain and suffering.
