Premises liability and public attractions

Theme parks and other public attractions like ice-skating rinks are often a great way to spend free time with family, especially as the holidays draw near. However, these types of attractions are often much more dangerous than you might expect, and can play a role in very serious injuries or even death.

What if I'm injured at a music festival?

Summer is fully upon us, which for many people means it's music festival season. The booming popularity of outdoor music festivals over the last 15 years or so has created many opportunities to witness some amazing lineups of the best artists in every genre, but it also has brought many dangers that festival-goers often don't consider until its too late. If you plan to attend a festival this summer, be sure to have a plan in case an injury occurs.

Man wins years-long premises liability suit

When a person is injured, the owner or occupant of the place where the injury occurred often faces responsibility for the injury under a premises liability suit. The realities of premises liability suits was demonstrated recently in the resolution of years-long case of a Bridgeport man who injured his back while delivering supplies to a pizza parlor in 2010.

Is my hotel liable for my injury?

As the weather begins to look like spring and warm into summer, many families are creating a plan for a weekend getaway or a longer vacation. Unfortunately, a slip-and-fall accident can happen anywhere, and may occur while you and your family are staying in a hotel or some other home-away-from-home. So, if you or your loved one is injured on the premises of a hotel, what should you do?

What is public liability insurance?

As a business owner, one part of becoming a legitimate operation is securing proper insurance to protect your business. Of course, not all insurance policies are created equal, and not every insurance provider offers exactly the same coverage or operates under the same terms. While most businesses choose to secure general liability insurance, some businesses seek out public liability insurance.

Premises liability is not always a simple matter

Premises liabilities suits often involve people injured in areas where the responsible party is not entirely clear. If you have been injured in by poorly maintained property, it is important to get the help you need to find the appropriate responsible party so you can pursue justice for your injuries. However, that is sometimes easier said than done.

The attractive nuisance in premises liability

There are a number of ways that a private individual may face a premises liability suit, rather than a business or other impersonal entity. Generally, a court considering a private premises liability suit will look to the degree of negligence present on the part of the defendant, as well as the relationship between the injured party and the defendant. For instance, if an individual is injured on private property, but is not there as a guest of the owner in some recognizable capacity, it is very difficult to press liability charges. There are, however, some exceptions.

What is host liability?

Hosting the event of the year is often a badge of honor sought after by many individuals who love the thrill of throwing the perfect party. However, hosting a party can have surprising legal implications — especially if there is alcohol served. Once alcohol is introduced into the equation, a host must take certain precautions to protect him or herself or risk litigation if there is an accident, even after the guests leave the event.

Understanding premises liability in your area

Injuries are an ever present possibility, no matter who you are or what your style may be. One of the most common types of personal injuries are those that occur while on the property of another person or company. If you have been injured while on someone else's property, you may be eligible to recover compensation through a premises liability suit, depending on the specific facts of your experience.
