When you set foot onto another party’s premises, whether it is the house of an acquaintance or a large supermarket that is part of a chain, you have every reason to expect that it is safe for you to do so. Under the legal doctrine of premises liability, the owners and managers of properties owe a duty of care to those who enter onto their premises; they have a responsibility to make certain that conditions are reasonably safe and that entrants onto their premises are protected from or warned of any potential hazards. When they fail to exercise this duty of care, and an injury occurs as a result, they can be held financially liable for any losses or expenses related to that injury.
Among the most common types of premises liability accidents are slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents can occur due to any number of causes; cases involving slip and fall accident causes of all types are expertly handled by Manchester, NH personal injury attorney John B.
