Premises liability is the responsibility of a property owner to maintain their property, which could be their land, their home, or even a business, in a way that is safe. Of course, that doesn’t mean the law in Arizona regarding premises liability is that straightforward. However, it does mean that people, including corporations, have a legal obligation to keep their property reasonably safe for those who are invited or welcome to be on the premises.
In Mesa, one of the most common premises liability claims is a slip and fall. However, that’s not the only common example. Others include:
It’s important that the proper defendant is named in your claim, especially if a lawsuit is filed. There could even be more than one defendant, depending on the facts of your case. In a slip and fall that occurred in a retail space, for example, it could be that the manager and an employee are both responsible for your injuries if they knew of the wet or slippery floor and chose to not follow the store policy and place signs or follow the other protocols. The store owner may also be liable.
If there’s improper lighting and you’re injured, it could be that the person in charge of ensuring proper lighting is the defendant. It could be the light manufacturer if the light fixture or other parts are defective.
