Generally, premises liability lawsuits refers to injury sustained on another person’s property as a result of a hazardous condition that is allowed or neglected by the landowner. These hazardous conditions range from accidents involving slip and fall or trip and fall from factors such as un-even pavement, icy walkway, inadequate warnings for wet floors, defective steps , to more serious conditions such as inadequate security on the premises, animal attacks, roof cave-ins, fires and etc. The landowner will be liable for any injury that occur from the un-safe condition on the premises.
However the concept of “comparative negligence” may apply if the visitor acts unreasonable and purposely gets injured as a result of an un-safe condition that is obvious to observe and can easily be avoided. Comparative negligence puts both the victim and the landowner at fault on a percentage level. So, for example, if both the victim and the defendant were at fault at 50 percent, the victim will only be entitled to 50 percent recovery out of the damage from the defendant.
