Premises liability lawsuits for businesses

Thousands of Pennsylvania residents visit hospital emergency rooms each year after falling prey to slip-and-fall accidents. Lawsuits stemming from slips, trips and falls are among the most common kinds of personal injury litigation. Building owners usually limit their exposure to this kind of legal action by inserting provisions in their leases that make safety the responsibility of tenants, and it is usually the occupiers of premises that are named as defendants in slip-and-fall lawsuits.

Compensation may be available for slip and fall injury

Almost everyone has, at one time or another, taken a misstep and fallen to the ground without suffering from anything more serious than a bruised ego. Tripping and falling can, however, result in serious personal injury that might entitle the victim to receive compensation from the owner of the property on which the fall occurs. This was the situation that caused a Pennsylvania man to sue the operators of a casino after he fell while entering their facility.

Outdoor party attractions can be hazardous

Outdoor events can be particularly popular during good weather in Pennsylvania. Modern event attractions can be fun because they can be set up in a variety of private or public settings to accommodate a wide range of ages and interests. A rock climbing experience, bounce house, or trampoline can provide a way to add a sense of fun and adventure to one's events. However, premises liability can become a serious issue if the portable attractions used at an event cause injuries to participants. This was the case for a man who attended a picnic for his wife's employer in New Jersey recently.

Injuries that occur at a business

In Pennsylvania and around the country, accidents will happen. If someone is injured on a business's property, a lawsuit could be filed against the business owner. The business owner is responsible for keeping patrons, visitors and employees safe. The business owner, whether renting or owning, is nearly always responsible for any injuries, such as a slip and fall, under what is called premises liability.
