Common Types of Premises Liability Claims
Premises liability is a legal term that refers to the responsibility every property owner assumes when others visit his or her property. If the property is somehow neglected or unsafe, causing a tenant or visitor harm in the form of an illness or injury, then the owner might be held liable for the harm the person has endured and related costs.
