Understanding Premises Liability Matters

In Rhode Island and across the country, property owners and managers can be held legally responsible if a failure to provide reasonably safe grounds causes a lawful visitor to experience harm. An example may be a defective stair that causes an elderly customer in a restaurant to trip and fall.

Another example may be a parking structure that has poor lighting and a lack of security personnel, resulting in a physical assault on a person trying to find their vehicle. If the owner or manager of the property failed to act with reasonable care in maintaining safe grounds, this may provide the injured party with a valid premises liability lawsuit.

Our Rhode Island premises liability attorneys experience includes work in the following types of premises liability cases, among others:

  • Negligent security
  • Violent and sexual assaults occurring on the property
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Negligent provision of alcohol
  • Dangerous conditions
  • Hidden dangers on the property
  • Custodial care
