What Premises Liability Covers
People are injured or hurt every day on private and public properties, suffering serious injuries that require expensive medical procedures and rehabilitation. The law requires property owners to keep their premises reasonably safe for people who are on the property lawfully. In some cases, this duty extends to inspecting the property in order to discover dangerous conditions, and provide warnings about conditions they find, or repairs when possible.
