MONTANA PREMISES LIABILITY LAW
Commercial and Residential property owners and managers have a legal responsibility to maintain their homes, stores, and general grounds in good condition. They are also required to properly warn visitors and travelers if there are known hazard within their premise that needs to be avoided. When they fail to do so, and you suffered harm as a result, you may have the right to file for compensation for the injuries you sustained.
Common Types of Premises Liability Case
Slip and Fall is known to be the most common type of injury that is often a premise liability case. From wet floors, cracked pavements, uneven steps, to unattended trash, and even snow and ice covered sidewalks, these are all potential hazards that can cause someone to either trip, slip, or fall and can lead to serious and traumatic injuries such as broken and dislocated bones, severe soft tissue lacerations, deep bruising, hip fractures, spinal and brain injuries.
Other types of accident that can happen in premises may vary depending on the hazard or threats that are present. You may also file a lawsuit involving injuries that are caused by:
- Inadequate security
- Unsafe structures
- Building collapses
- Falling objects
- Construction zone conditions
- Elevator or escalator failures
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Dog bites
How can you prove the property owner’s negligence in filing a premises liability case?
