Premises Liability aka Slip & Fall
If negligent, property owners are held responsible for financial damages due to an injury that occurred on their property. Premises liability applies to individuals (home owner claims), as well as to entities, such as businesses who fail to meet a standard of care. Property owners and managers have the responsibility to maintain a safe environment for others who may come onto the property. Types of "Premises liability" cases include, but are not limited to the following:
Falling due to a wet substance not removed after a reasonable time,
Falling due to a poorly maintained floor or staircase;
Burns or injuries in a fire caused by negligence;
Injuries due to poorly lit or insecure parking lots or parking garages; and
Injuries due to generally poorly maintained property.
Contact a Kentucky Lawyer, Teddy Mims, to obtain compensation for your injuries as a result of the negligence of another, including the failure to maintain a safe environment for their customers or guests. However, the time you have to file a claim is limited in Kentucky. The Statute of Limitations for a premises liability case in Kentucky is one year from the date of incident causing the injury.
