Building codes exist for a reason. People who own properties—such as homeowners, business owners, and landlords—all have to keep their properties up to a certain standard of safety to protect themselves and those who enter their properties. When corners are cut and when property owners are negligent in upholding these standards, accidents happen.

What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability refers to any accident caused by unsafe conditions on someone’s property.

This can be anything from:

  • Trips caused by uneven pavement
  • Slips caused by spills
  • Falling object injuries caused by improperly stacked shelves
  • Or accidents caused by improper lighting

Premises liability accidents usually happen when the owner of a property does not maintain safe conditions and does not issue adequate warnings of known dangers.

What Are Common Types of Premises Liability Claims?

There are a wide variety of premises liability claims. Keep in mind that in order to be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, you must have been injured while working.

The most common types of premises liability claims include:

  • Building code violations
  • Falls on snow and ice
  • Broken railings
  • Damaged stairs and uneven sidewalks
  • Potholes
  • Inadequate lighting in parking lots, stairways, etc.
  • Inadequate security, which may lead to robbery, rape, assaults, etc.
  • Slippery substances on the floor
  • Improperly stacked shelves

Who Is Liable in Workplace Premises Liability Cases?

Under Massachusetts law, business owners and homeowners are responsible for maintaining safe conditions for those that enter their premises. When these safety standards are not upheld and someone gets hurt, the owner of the premises may be held liable for your injuries.

This includes instances in which an employer or the owner of a building where you work is negligent. Each premises liability case is different, as several factors are taken into consideration when determining liability.

This is why it’s important to consult with an attorney who focuses on these types of claims to find out if you have a case to pursue. For example, if a shopper slipped on a spill in a supermarket, it may seem that the owner of the premises would be liable for that shopper’s injuries.

However, if the spill was cleaned up in good time and a warning sign was put up, the owner may not be held liable after all. In order to determine liability, a variety of factors are taken into consideration.

How to Prove Liability

The victim must prove that:

  • The property owner created unsafe conditions by not cleaning up a spill, not displaying caution signs, improperly stacking shelves, not keeping the building up to code, etc.
  • The property owner knew of these unsafe conditions but did not take action to correct them
  • The property owner should have known about the dangers and taken action to fix the problems
