Understanding Premises Liability Law
When you are welcomed onto someone else’s property, you are relying on the property owner to have your safety in mind. Unfortunately, premises liability accidents are quite common.
What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability laws hold property owners responsible for any injuries people face on their premises that could have been avoided. Slippery floors, cracks in a walkway, faulty electrical wiring — these are just some of the potential hazards that could put visitors at risk. As a visitor, guest or customer in North Carolina, you may be entitled to a compensation for any injuries you suffer due to a negligence for safety on the property.
Some examples of harmful accidents include:
- Tripping over cracked concrete on someone’s sidewalk
- Falling down a neglected slippery stairway in a mall
- Being exposed to harmful chemicals in a building that has not been inspected
- Experiencing robbery in a public building due to a lack of security
- Being hit by falling retail products that were not securely stacked

Because injuries range widely and not all are easily treated, being financially compensated for your losses can help cover any costs that have resulted from your accident. This includes medical bills for your recovery process, a loss of wages from being unable to go to work, or perhaps even covering costs for a funeral in the case of a fatality.
If you or your loved one has been hurt in an accident on someone else’s property, you can rely on us to conduct a thorough investigation of your case, determine liability and tenaciously fight for your compensation. With strong trial experience, we are prepared to handle your case in front of a jury if necessary.
