What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is a legal term for a concept that exists in every state. It holds property owners and managers responsible for the safety of their premises and anyone who enters the property.
This means that if someone is injured on your property, you can be held liable for the damages if the injury was caused by a dangerous condition that you could have reasonably prevented. Premises liability claims are typically brought against property owners and occupiers, such as homeowners, landlords, schools, businesses, and government entities.
Examples of Premises Liability
Property damage and personal injury can result from a wide range of incidents that occur on someone else's property.
- Car, motorcycle, and other vehicle accidents in private parking lots
- Falls, including slip and fall accidents and falls from heights
- Swimming pool accidents, including accidental drowning
- Amusement park and theme park accidents
- Exposure to harmful substances, such as toxic mold or chemicals
- Violent crime, often as a result of negligent or inadequate security
- Dog bites and other animal attacks
When you are injured due to unsafe or defective conditions on someone else’s property, you have the right to fight for fair compensation for your injuries and damages. At Galileo Law, PLLC, we know how to effectively navigate the legal system, and we have the resources to advocate tirelessly for you.
What Is the Statute of Limitations for Premises Liability Cases?
Every state has a statute of limitations that sets a time limit on when you can file a personal injury claim. The clock usually starts on the date on which the incident occurs, and you will have a limited amount of time to submit your claim. If you miss the deadline, you will likely be unable to bring your lawsuit at all.
In Washington, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years. This means that you will have three years from the date of the incident to file a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner or another liable party.
