Wrongful Death Caused by Premises Liability

Managers, supervisors, tenants, and property owners are responsible for offering a safe setting to make certain that no individual on the premises is endangered physically.

However, due to the high cost of maintenance, replacement or repair of building materials, individuals in charge will normally cut corners, disregard their legal responsibilities, or ignore the problem. Many individuals sustain catastrophic injuries, and may even die due to carelessness, negligence, or intentional actions of other individuals.

Surviving family members, as a result, will normally file a wrongful death caused by premises liability lawsuit pursuing monetary compensation. Filing a lawsuit can never diminish the process of grieving, or bring back a loved one.

Any individual in charge of a property, however, that does not obey the rules, and breaks the law needs to be held liable legally.

Ignoring public safety and violating building codes are normally a complete disregard for the well-being of individuals who are at-risk of fatality or injury.

The majority of wrongful death caused by premises liability lawsuits entail a number of factors which include the following: smoke, fire or explosion; exposure to hazardous toxins and chemicals; dog bites and other animal attacks; injury from spills, flooding, or water leaks; slips and falls; trips and falls; inadequate lighting; collapse of a building including porch railings, porches, and ceilings; building code or housing code violation; unprotected potholes, uneven surfaces, slippery sidewalks, and icy parking lots; physical assaults, attacks, and sexual assault; missing or negligent security; daycare or school injuries; swimming pool or drowning accidents; and any neglect to maintain or repair the premises properly.

Premises Liability Tort Law

Premises liability connected to tort law concerns the duties of tenants, occupiers, property owners, managers, and other individuals required to protect those invited from any hazardous or defective condition on the property.

Most lawsuits pertaining to premises liability are effective in proving negligence when at-fault parties have breached their responsibilities, and caused a fatality of someone visiting.

A premises liability wrongful death lawsuit, normally, is brought against owner personnel and management in charge of maintaining or operating any establishment, which is open to the public, like a residential home or a place of business.

This may include the following: grocery stores; shopping centers; parking garages; markets; high-rises; restaurants; universities, colleges, and schools; golf courses; day care centers; nursing homes, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities; community centers; residential homes; banks; and hotels and motels.

In addition to making sure that the property is free from any defective building material and well-maintained, premises liability normally extends to any act intentional happening on the site, which can cause the death of another individual.

Members of the family of a loved one killed due to an intentional act of other individuals visiting the property may have the opportunity to pursue monetary compensation via a premises liability wrongful death lawsuit.

If the incident or accident resulting in the death of a member of the family through negligence on the premises of another, it is imperative to hire a personal injury attorney with experience and skills who specializes in cases pertaining to wrongful death caused by premises liability.
