Dangerous premises are a risk to everyone

Slip and fall accidents fall under premises liability, an area of law that actually covers a significantly greater field of injurious incidents than just slip and falls. Negligent and dangerous conditions can exist in myriad buildings, sidewalks, bridges, vehicles, and many other places. And when they lead to a person suffering needlessly and avoidable harm, it is only right that the victim gets a chance to hold the at-fault party responsible for their inability to cure the risky condition.

Slip and fall accidents are an easy one to point to, though. When a business or property owner fails to recognize and properly clean up a wet or slippery substance on the ground, innocent and unsuspecting people can suffer serious injuries as a result of a slip and fall.

Trip and falls are another example of a slip and fall. Maybe a building manager leaves a dilapidated segment of carpeting in an apartment complex untouched for years, and eventually someone catches a pulled-up piece of the carpeting at just the right angle, ultimately falling and breaking bones as a result. This could lead to a premises liability lawsuit.

Other dangerous circumstances can lead to someone suing under the pretense of premises liability. Inadequate security a private venue is one example. Maybe a nightclub did not have enough security guards at an event that ultimately got out of hand.

Victims that suffer as a result of these negligent conditions should consult with an attorney to pursue their claims -- and in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the names to know are DelVecchio & Miller.
