Several different types of cases fall under the heading "Premises Liability". Basically, this category of cases includes a wide variety of cases arising out of the negligence of business owners and/or possessors of property.
Some examples of cases that fall in this category are slip and fall accidents caused by the failure of a property owner to clear ice and snow off of his walkways; trip and fall accidents caused by dangerous obstructions on walking surfaces; merchandise falling off of store shelves onto customers; injuries caused by unsafe conditions on business premises; injuries due to improper or inadequate security; injuries caused by the negligent sale or supply of alcoholic beverages to individuals; landlord negligence and hotel/resort negligence.
While these cases are quite varied, the common element which binds these cases together in one "category" of cases is the unique legal duties which the law imposes upon business owners and possessors of land. Dan O'Brien, John Orlando and Julia Lee have vast experience in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey representing individuals who have been injured due to the negligence of business owners and/or possessors of land. These cases include significant recoveries on behalf of individuals injured at amusement parks, apartment tenants injured due to the landlord's failure to maintain the common areas of the apartment complex; apartment tenants injured due to improper security of the apartment building; customers at stores injured due to hazardous conditions at the stores; hotel guests injured due to negligent maintenance of the hotel; individuals injured as a result of liquor law violations; repairmen injured due to dangerous conditions at the premises where they have been called in to do repairs; individuals injured due to improper lighting; individuals injured due to failure of property owners to maintain their sidewalks; and numerous other types of cases falling under the broad category of business and premises liability.
