Premises liability is a broad area of the law and encompasses many different types of accidents and scenarios involving personal injury. Premises liability matters can occur in almost any circumstance and at almost any place. They can occur at supermarkets, mall parking lots, apartment complexes, amusement parks, sports arenas, a neighbor’s sidewalk, restaurants or just about any other place where negligence may occur.
The most common premises liability scenario involves slip-and-falls or trip and falls. If you have been injured in a premises liability matter, it is important to document the exact time, date and circumstances of the incident. It is also important to obtain the names of each and every potential witness to the accident as witnesses may be needed in resolving the matter at a later point in time.

Stairways or Steps
