Frequently Asked Questions About Premises Liability Claims

Premises liability claims are not that familiar to many people, and many are confused about how they work. Here are some of the questions we hear the most:

Who is responsible for accidents on private property?

Generally speaking, if you are injured on someone else’s property, you may be able to hold either (or both) the owner or occupier of the property liable for your injuries. Property owners and occupiers – such as business owners whose storefronts occupy commercial space – each have a duty to keep the property in reasonably safe condition for visitors. When obvious or known hazards are not addressed and that leads to injuries, they have to take responsibility.

What injuries can occur on private property?

Premises liability claims are much more common than people think. Some common claims revolve around:

  • Broken bones from slips, trips and falls
  • Bite wounds from unsecured animals or dangerous dogs
  • Crush injuries from falling merchandise in a store
  • Traumatic brain injuries from falls and other issues
  • Spinal cord damage from falls on defective stairs
  • Drownings in unsecured pools
  • Trauma and injuries from assaults due to negligent security

In short, premises liability claims can involve life-altering injuries, which is why it is so important to have an experienced attorney handle your claim.

How long do I have to file a claim for premises liability?

Every state imposes a time limit on personal injury claims. This is known as the statute of limitations. In Washington, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years. After that time, you would be barred from making any further claims. However, evidence can disappear and memories can fade long before three years have passed, which is why it is smart to contact an attorney as soon as you think you have a claim.
