Serious Personal Injury Law

Premises Liability

Property owners in Arizona are required to keep their property safe for visitors. The two primary types of cases we handle in this context are: 1) Severe slip and falls; and 2) Negligent Security.

Statistics overwhelming show that slip and falls are dangerous and expensive. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease and Control Prevention), one in five falls cause significant injury. The CDC further reports that falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injury and are responsible for more than 95% of hip fractures. CDC statistics also show that over 800,000 people in the U.S. a year are admitted to the hospital for fall-related injuries, and annual medical costs for falls exceed a staggering $50 billion. The average hospital cost per fall is $30,000, a figure that increases with age and does not include ongoing treatment for injuries.

Given these astounding statistics, it unquestionably important for landowners to keep their premise safe for visitors. Businesses generally owe customers a duty of reasonable care to keep the property reasonably safe. Homeowners generally owe guests a duty to warn of dangerous conditions that pose an unreasonable risk of harm, so long as the owner knows of the condition and the condition is not obvious to guests. Generally, property owners do not owe a duty to trespassers, with exceptions applying to child trespassers.

In addition to keeping their premise safe from hazardous conditions, in Arizona owners also owe a duty to take reasonable steps to keep their premise safe from foreseeable criminal activity. A common example is an attack in the parking lot of store or restaurant due to lack of security, cameras, or lighting.

If you or a loved one are among those who have suffered a significant injury and high medical costs because of a fall or criminal act that occurred on someone else’s property while you were a customer or guest, it is important to speak with a skilled and experienced litigator.
