Premises liability is established if there is a negligent maintenance of the owner’s property. Negligent maintenance of the premises makes the owner liable for any injuries that occur. This type of neglect is seen in homes, apartments, and common areas. Additionally, stores, restaurants, malls, and other facilities need to protect their customers and individuals from slip/trip and falls on surfaces and objects, caused by the negligent maintenance of these areas. Injuries that occur while walking on sidewalks, parking lots, and within buildings involve premises liability claims. These accidents can also occur as a result of inadequate lighting.
