Premise liability cases arise when someone is hurt on the property of another. The law will question whether a landowner breached their duty of care to ensure their property was in a reasonably safe condition. Often these cases occur when someone slips and falls. Sometimes the ground is icy or wet and sometimes the walking surface is defective. Premise liability cases can arise whenever a dangerous condition is present, even on public sidewalks. In many circumstances, attacks by dogs are considered premise liability cases when the danger occurs on the property of another person or entity.
