FACT: Landowners have a legal duty to ensure their property is free from dangerous or potentially harmful conditions.
In Pennsylvania, if you were hurt while on someone else’s property or premises, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim to recover financial compensation. That is because individuals and companies who are in possession of land can be held responsible for any preventable injuries sustained by individuals on that land.
Common examples of premises liability cases include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Amusement park accidents
- Snow and ice accidents
- Apartment complex break-ins
- Sexual assault on premises
- Drowning accidents
- Hotel/motel liability

Dangerous Premises Conditions
All people have a reasonable expectation of safety whenever they visit public or private land. Broadly speaking, all property managers are obligated to prevent defects or harmful conditions whenever possible. If the condition of the store, apartment complex, office building, shopping mall, restaurant, etc. is unsafe, the owner of the premises is liable for accidents that occur as a result. The specific claim made by victims of these accidents is that the premises manager knew or should have known about the dangerous defect, and by doing nothing allowed harm to visitors or tenants.
Situations that can lead to a lawsuit include:
- Slippery or ice-covered floors
- Broken stairs
- Missing railings
- Poor lighting
- Loose carpet
- Malfunctioning equipment
- Uneven sidewalks
- Negligent security
A premises liability claim may be filed as a result of any condition that causes avoidable injury, had the property owner acted to prevent the injury from occurring. For instance, let’s say you live in an old neighborhood where there are a lot of large, old trees. Some of the sidewalk in front of your house is buckled up from the tree’s roots growing underneath. If someone trips over the sidewalk on your premises, you may be liable for that person’s injuries and damages may be awarded as a result.
