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.

Put a heavyweight in your corner; call Lanier Law Group at (855) 757-4204 or contact us online to request a free consultation today. 

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.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
