Slip-and-falls aren't the only cause of unsafe premises

When it comes to lawsuits that deal with premises liability, one of the common events that triggers this legal action is a slip-and-fall incident. This usually occurs when an unsafe premises leads to a person slipping and falling, such as on a dilapidated or slippery surface.

However, slip-and-fall accidents are just one thing that can trigger a premises liability lawsuit. There are two other common forms of this type of lawsuit. Exposure to a toxic element can lead to the victim suffering terrible medical conditions, and it can also lead to a lawsuit. It is also far from uncommon for a building or property owner to be sued for failing to provide an adequate amount of security.

Even though there are many ways that a premises liability lawsuit can come about, and even though to the victim it may seem clear that the accused parties are responsible, it's never as easy as it may seem to prove that the property owner or accused party was, in fact, negligent. It always helps to be prepared. Photos of the area that caused the incident, or getting eyewitness accounts from those who were nearby can go a long way in helping you prove that the accused party is guilty of maintaining an unsafe premises.
