A lot of things can make a property dangerous—and a property owner potentially negligent and at fault when a visitor on the premises is injured. We commonly think of premises liability as a slip and fall accident on an icy sidewalk, but it can include:A serious face or neck injury resulting from a dog bite or animal attack The accidental drowning of a child who had access to an unprotected swimming pool An assault occurring in a “secure” building or parking lot Suffering a back injury from a fall on a slippery floor in a shopping mall A hip fracture from a trip and fall accident over items left on the floor in a nursing home Suffering a broken leg, wrist or arm from a fall in a stairwell with no handrails A crushing injury from a defective door closing on a person’s arm or back A head injury from being struck by items falling from store shelves
