“Premises Liability” is defined under Pennsylvania Law as the liability of either the property owner, or, of the party responsible for maintaining the property. In the event that a person is subjected to an injury resulting from the existence of a dangerous condition on the property, said property owner or party responsible for maintaining the property may be held legally liable.
Landowners are required to maintain their property in a manner that does not cause injury to those that, for various reasons, visit their property. Often times, this pertains to both business owners and homeowners. Sometimes, however, accidents and problems occur on the property of others. If the accident was caused by the negligence of the owner, then an individual may have a premise liability claim.
