Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable
Minor and major accidents occur every day as a result of unsafe infrastructures. What most people don’t know is that the definition of premises liability laws state that it is the responsibility of every property owner to ensure that his or her premises are safe for all who encounter them. This includes those who own properties with unsafe environments such as construction companies.

Types of Premises Liability Cases We Handle
Whether in a casino, nightclub, bar, or remote parking area of a local shopping mall, the businesses that invite you to spend your hard-earned money at their establishments owe a duty to you to keep their premises reasonably safe.
Common premises liability cases that we handle include:
- Construction accidents
- Dog bites
- Electrical shock
- Playground injuries
- Slip and fall
- Broken sidewalks and parking lots
- Workplace injuries
- Ice and snow injuries
- Negligent security
Additionally, let’s not forget the risk from construction zones. Many pedestrians are injured each year where urban construction overlaps private property on sidewalks and streets. The interplay between private, public, and local governments can make these difficult cases to pursue.
At Ginsburg & Associates Trial Lawyers, our legal team recognizes that multiple experts are often needed to determine fault and establish appropriate damages for severe injuries.
What Can I Recover From a Premises Liability Case?
If you decide to pursue a claim, you may be able to win compensation that cover your economic and non-economic losses.
This may include:
- Lost wages
- Past and future medical expenses
- Damage to property
- Emotional distress
How to Prove Negligence in a Premises Liability Case
If an individual was injured on a property, it does not automatically mean that the owner or property manager was at fault. It depends on the situation.
To prove negligence, you must prove:
- You were seriously injured
- An unsafe condition on the property was what caused the injury
- The owner was aware of the unsafe condition or should have known about it and failed to warn others or make repairs
Understanding Premises Liability Law
The Philadelphia building collapse on June 5, 2013, was a perfect example of why premises liability laws are in place. Over a dozen people were seriously injured and several innocent victims lost their lives.
However, despite the many improvements in the law, many premises liability cases such as slips on wet floors that were unmarked or injuries caused by poorly arranged objects in a store still go unreported. These accidents may seem minor but can cause serious damage and financial strains on the victim. Such accidents can happen anywhere including restaurants, clubs, hotels, or even residential areas.
A property owner’s responsibility can arise from:
- A sidewalk or parking lot that is in disrepair
- A torn rug inside a building
- A falling ceiling
It can also be based on a walkway that is not marked to draw the attention of a person who is about to walk on it, as required by local codes. Our Philadelphia premises liability lawyers also pay attention to security issues. When a business creates an environment that puts its customers at risk, they can be liable if they have not taken reasonable efforts to provide for their customer’s safety.
Are Businesses Liable For Customers' Injuries?
Yes -- businesses are liable for accidents that cause injuries to their customers or patrons. By law, they must ensure that their premises is well-maintained and keeps customers safe from hazards that may cause injury or harm.
