Causes of On-Premises Injuries

Catastrophic injuries caused by dangerous premises can leave a person with extensive medical bills, therapy needs, special equipment needs, lost wages, and, in too many cases, permanent disability. The premises liability lawyers at Gray Ritter Graham in St. Louis help victims injured by dangerous premises recover the compensation they deserve.


At businesses and all manner of public places including stores, hotels, sports stadiums, hospitals, and nursing homes, you have the right to feel safe and leave unharmed. Premises liability covers a wide range of accidents, which is why having an experienced premises liability lawyer on your side can make all the difference when seeking just compensation.

A number of conditions and factors can lead to injuries. Some examples of potential on-premises hazards include:

  • Faulty doors
  • Unsecured rugs and doormats
  • Unrepaired flooring
  • Slippery surfaces caused by standing water or ice
  • Unsafe walkways and unmarked steps
  • Sudden changes in levels of a hallway
  • Open, unprotected holes in a sidewalk or parking lot
  • Dangerous, poorly designed playgrounds or activity centers
  • Amusement park rides that trap or eject riders
  • Escalator and elevator accidents
  • Poor building construction or design
  • Shoddy materials
  • Falling debris
  • Poor lighting
  • Lack of guardrails
  • Faulty stairs
  • Unattended storm damage
  • Defective electrical wiring
  • Building code violations
  • Insufficient or negligent security
  • Government officials and agencies failing to maintain safe streets, sidewalks, and other public areas, leading to municipal liability claims

Common Premises Liability Injuries

Usually, when on-premises accidents happen, they could have easily been prevented if the property owner had not neglected their responsibilities. Premises liability claims can vary, but the types of injuries that tend to result from preventable hazards include:

  • Broken bones
  • Serious head injuries including concussions and brain trauma
  • Spinal cord and neck injuries
  • Burns
  • Electric shocks

This is not a complete list of possible injuries. If you have suffered a serious injury at a business, public place, or on someone else’s property, you may have a premises liability claim. Contact us today to discuss your case.

Who is Responsible for Your Injuries?

In most cases, the property owner is legally liable for the cost of injuries sustained on the premises. They must exercise reasonable precautions to keep people on their property safe, and when they fail to do so, they may be found negligent.

A property owner may be negligent when:

  • The property had an unsafe condition
  • The property owner either knew about the condition or should have known if they had been caring for the property adequately
  • The owner did not fix or remove the hazard, nor did they properly warn you about it
  • You were injured in the accident caused by the unsafe condition on their property

This means that you wouldn’t have been injured at all, had the property owner been appropriately careful.

In some cases, there are multiple negligent parties—such as the property manager, a tenant, contractors working on the property, or an employee—and they all could be liable for your injuries. Let our premises liability lawyers help determine which party is at fault and build a strong case against them.

The most important thing to remember with premises liability claims is that no matter where you were or who the property owner is, you should not have to pay for injuries you received because of their negligence.
