North Carolina Premises Liability Lawyers
Serving Clients throughout the State since 1997
Both private and public property owners have a duty of reasonable care to guests, visitors, and others who are legally on their premises. This means that property owners are responsible for conducting proper premises upkeep and maintenance, limiting dangerous conditions, and/or warning visitors of any hazards that may exist. When property owners fail to do this, they put innocent people at risk.
If you were injured on someone else’s property and you believe a negligent property owner, manager, or another party was at fault, reach out to the team at Lanier Law Group. Our North Carolina premises liability lawyers can help determine if you have grounds for a claim and, if so, what compensation you may be entitled to receive. We are prepared to put decades of experience and our aggressive, personalized approach to personal injury law on your side.
What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability refers to the responsibility of property owners to keep reasonably safe premises for visitors. This applies to anyone who is legally on the property, such as an invited guest, a customer, an employee, a tenant, or anyone in a public place, such as a park. However, the law does not typically afford such protections to those who are unlawfully on public or private property, such as trespassers.
To bring a premises liability claim in North Carolina, you will need to prove the following elements:
- The property owner owed you a duty of care (in other words, you were lawfully on the property)
- A dangerous condition existed
- The property owner knew of or should have known of the dangerous condition
- The property owner failed to take reasonable action to fix, address, or warn of the dangerous condition
- You were injured as a result
- Due to your injuries, you suffered damages (medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc.)
“Dangerous conditions” vary but often include things like spilled merchandise, accumulated water or ice, improper signage, unsafe swimming pools, improper or inadequate maintenance, unsafe stairs, lack of proper hand rails, and more.
