Under Arizona law, anyone who owns property has a legal obligation to keep it safe from hazards. If property owners fail to properly maintain their property and someone incurs injury as a result, they may be liable for damages under premise liability law. It is like a public-policy contract for safety.
While many accidents are minor, some result in serious and even catastrophic injuries. If you or a loved one are struggling with medical bills, lost wages, or other damages associated with an accident incurred on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Entities like businesses, public parks, homes, and government buildings must maintain their properties to prevent foreseeable injury. Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of premise liability accidents, so much that it’s sometimes called slip and fall liability. However, premise liability law encompasses all kinds of scenarios, including:
- Pool accidents;
- Elevator and escalator accidents;
- Security lapses;
- Slip, trip, and fall accidents;
- Dog bites;
- Asbestos or lead-related illness; or
- Amusement park injuries.
Premise liability cases can become very complicated. These all have different legal guidelines and insurance considerations, making each case unique. Gage Mathers has experience with each kind of premises liability case.
