Wondering whether you have a case?
PREMISES LIABILITY ATTORNEY
Premises Liability Cases Have Four Main Requirements
Ownership of the Property
The first key factor in a premises liability case in Utah is proving that the person who caused the injury owned, occupied, or leased the property where the injury occurred.
The next step is to show that the owner was negligent in their care of the property by failing to provide a safe location for visitors.
Presence of an Injury
Another aspect of your case is the ability to prove that you were harmed in some way, and to prove the extent to which the injury has affected your life.
Impact of Negligence
You must prove that the property owner’s negligence was a major factor in causing your injuries.

Premises Liability Cases
Premises liability laws apply to the owner or caretaker of a private home, a park, a hotel or a school — any place where an individual or the public is invited. In a premises liability case, it must be shown that an injury resulted from negligence, meaning that the owner or property manager knew or should have known about a hazard, and did nothing to safeguard the visitor. At the very least, if a hazard cannot be eliminated, adequate warnings must be posted. The law holds that even trespassers are entitled to warning about an obvious hazard.
There are a variety of accidents that can trigger a premises liability lawsuit. Some of the more common accidents include:
Slip and Fall – A walkway containing a hazard, such as spilled liquid or debris, can be an accident waiting to happen. Slip and falls are the most common type of injury accident, and though many cause minor scrapes and sprains, some can prove catastrophic or even fatal.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning – A malfunctioning heater can emit odorless carbon monoxide gas that can prove deadly when inhaled for a sustained period of time. These accidents are common in cold weather months, especially in older apartment buildings.
Dog Bites – Dog attacks can cause severe, disfiguring injury, and children are frequent victims. Dogs known to be dangerous must be properly penned or leashed to avoid attacking a visitor or passerby.
Drowning – Water is considered an “attractive nuisance” to children, and pools are expected to be properly fenced and gated.
Parking Area Crime – When a business is known to be in a high crime area, the parking lot should be secure and well lit. Victims of violent crime in parking areas may have a premises liability case.
Firearm Accidents – Unfortunately, accidents involving firearms occur all too frequently. Although many specifics shape these cases, property owners may be held responsible for accidental shootings.
