Premises Liability

Were You Injured On Someone Else’s Property In Utah?

Property owners have the obligation to take reasonable precautions to prevent harm to visitors, whether the property is a workplace, a residential house, an entertainment building, a government complex or a public space. If owners or property managers fail to take the necessary precautions, they could be held liable for any injuries that take place on their premises.

There are several things that property owners need to make sure are nonexistent on their premises to prevent possible harm to others, including:

  • Hazardous conditions
  • Open excavations or holes
  • Uneven ground or broken concrete
  • Standing water or wet floors
  • Curbs that are falling apart
  • Piled snow or iced walkways
  • Objects that could fall
  • Inadequate security
  • Dim lighting
  • Mats on the ground that are unsecured
  • Defective chairs or benches
  • Unfinished construction areas that have exposed glass or nails

Common Premises Liability Claims

The person who possesses or manages the property could be held responsible for any injuries caused by unsafe conditions on the premises. If the premises owner fails to warn visitors or take proper security measures and an injury takes place, they can be held liable through a personal injury claim or lawsuit. Some common types of premises liability cases include:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Contractor liability
  • Security hazards
  • Dog bites

What Kind Of Compensation Should I Receive?

Premises liability law in Utah can be complex, so it is important to understand what damages you may be entitled to recover. The amount of compensation you may be able to obtain for your premises liability case will depend upon such factors as:

  • Pain and suffering

  • Current and ongoing medical bills
  • Current and future assisted care costs
