Lesser known places where premises liability accidents happen

Premises liability cases entail sustaining an injury on public property, or private property you have a legal right to be on, due to the owner's negligence. Accidents can be the result of lack of maintenance, improper construction, obstructions, poor security measures or other dangerous conditions.

Common accidents are slips, trips-and fall- in supermarkets, retail stores and other commercial buildings, often from wet floors or loose inventory. However, these are not the only places you should exercise caution. Hazards are all around you, including these locations:

Playgrounds

You take your kids to the park to have fun, not to get hurt, yet this happens more often than you may realize. Playground equipment is often high, can get hot or and may not undergo sufficient maintenance. These traits can lead to broken bones, concussions, burns and other injuries. The rate of traumatic brain injuries for playground accidents has increased, reveals the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Gyms

Do you work out at a private gym or play basketball at a public gymnasium? Most injuries probably come from the exercise, but sometimes the cause is the place itself. Equipment may malfunction, or surfaces may be slippery. These cases can be more challenging if you signed a waiver before use, but they are still worth pursuing.

Stadiums

There is nothing like a night out for a ball game, concert or other entertainment at a stadium. Things can easily get out of hand at these events, though. The large mess can make slips or  trips-and-falls likelier to happen. Lots of stairs mean greater risk of accident, and the high use of the arena can mean seats and other components get damaged quickly.

Offices

Working at the office may seem like the safest place of employment, and for the most part, you are right. However, offices have their share of hazards as well. Most common are objects striking or falling on you. Defective equipment can also result in injuries. In this case, you may be able to file a workers' compensation claim.

 If you have suffered an injury due to a property owner's negligence, you may be able to claim compensation. Speak with an experienced personal injury attorney concerning your legal options.
