Premises Liability Archives

Warning signs do not always mean you can't seek compensation

One way that businesses and homeowners try to avoid having to pay someone compensation if they get hurt on the property is by putting up warning signs. While they may argue that they do this to keep people safe -- and it may help -- the focus is often on liability. If someone gets hurt and threatens to sue, they assume they can just point to the sign and avoid payment.

Lighting still needs to be safe, even when prioritizing the view

Preserving natural beauty is always something that has been important in Arizona. For instance, nearly 20 years ago, Flagstaff became the first International Dark Sky City in the world. This was done to try to reduce light pollution so that residents could observe an unobstructed view of the night sky, without the light pollution so common in other cities.

How do people break into buildings?

When you stay in a hotel, an apartment, a vacation rental or any other type of property that you do not own, you expect that the owner took proper steps to keep you safe. This means using proper security methods to make sure you do not get harmed during some type of criminal activity, like a break-in.

Establishing liability after a slip-and-fall injury

Property managers in Arizona have a duty to their guests to maintain safe premises and remove any known dangers. Property owners should also post signs if a danger is present so that guests can avoid getting hurt by it. When a property owner fails to fulfill this duty to his or her property visitors, resulting injuries could give rise to a premises liability claim.

2 important issues relating to hotels and premises liability

Arizona hotels receive a lot of visitors and guests. To ensure that these guests don't get hurt, the property owners and managers of these hotels need to keep their premises safe and free of unnecessary dangers. Failure to do so could render the property owners at fault and liable in the event of a serious injury.
