It is important for homeowners and businesses to post warning signs to notify visitors of potential hazards lingering on the property. Regular maintenance checks must be conducted to catch any defective equipment, but if nothing can be done to remove the risk, then the property owner is expected to provide warning signs to give visitors a heads up to be careful while walking in. Unfortunately, there are property owners that do not inspect their premises for potential hazards. This is a negligent action that can get them into serious trouble. Any visitor who gets injured while on someone’s property as a result of the property owner’s negligence should consider a premises liability lawsuit against the person or company at-fault.

Premises liability lawsuits are usually filed against businesses for slip and fall cases. This incident has commonly occurred in retail and grocery stores. However, people can get hurt in all kinds of places, including lobbies, parking lots, hallways, and so on.
Business owners have a duty of care for visitors. By law, they must take reasonable actions to make sure those stepping onto their property are protected. There are three types of visitors, including:
Commercial general liability (CGL) insurance is made to protect a business owner from a variety of claims, such as personal injury, negligence, and property damage that is caused by the company’s products, operations, or premises. An important factor of a CGL policy is premises liability coverage. This will cover damages for bodily injury and property damage.
There are a variety of accidents that can happen: a customer might trip on a hidden extension cord, break a bone falling over an improperly placed carpet, or slip on a wet area and hit the ground. These examples will require premises liability coverage to compensate for a victim’s medical expenses, lost wages, emotional distress, and so on.
Premises liability insurance may not cover every type of situation relating to a visitor getting hurt. To get a better idea on what this means, here is an example:
A medical expert is performing a procedure on a patient. During this process, they accidentally harm the patient. This type of injury will not be covered by the premises liability insurance policy. Additional other scenarios that will not be covered include:
