Premises Liability

A premises liability lawsuit holds a property owner responsible for any damages arising out of an injury on that person or entity's property. In Washington State, owners that occupy a property must make a reasonable effort to maintain a safe environment for visitors to it. Failure to keep the property safe for visitors results in "premises liability." Common situations that may give rise to premises liability lawsuits are:

  • Animal and Dog Bites
  • Slip and Fall Accidents
  • Dangerous Property
  • Negligent or Inadequate Security
  • Swimming Pool Injury
  • Inadequate Maintenance
  • Children on Property
  • Retail Store Liability
  • Restaurant Liability

Owners or occupants must regularly inspect the property to find dangerous conditions and either repair them or put up a warning so that lawful visitors are not injured. Any owner that fails to meet this duty, such as by knowing of a dangerous condition and failing to warn visitors, can be held liable for visitors' injuries that result from it.

Nevertheless, a visitor has the duty to use reasonable care to keep himself or herself safe. To the extent the visitor fails to use reasonable care, the recovery can be reduced by his or her percentage of fault.

When I received the divorce papers from my husband, I was extremely worried and didn’t know what to do. I found Alice and Northwest Law Group through a friend, and just after my first meeting with Alice, I felt as though a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. She explained everything to me and continued to do so as she represented me through the conclusion of my case. I don’t know what I would have done without Alice! - Z.B
