Premises Liability Slip and Fall Personal Injury Claims in North Carolina


North Carolina law requires business and land owners to keep their property safe and secure from dangerous conditions. If you suffer a personal injury because of someone’s failure to remove or protect against such a dangerous condition, you may be able to state a claim under North Carolina premises liability law. The Raleigh attorneys of Maginnis Law, PLLC are experienced in handling premises liability personal injury cases and can litigate your claim all the way through trial if necessary.

A premises liability claim is in essence a negligence action against the business or land owner. Many different circumstances can lead to premises liability claims, but the most common is a slip and fall personal injury. Slip and fall claims literally involve a visitor to property falling and injuring him or herself as a result of the land or business owner’s negligence. A couple of common examples are the tenant who falls down a flight of stairs because of the landlord’s failure to remove ice or the visitor to a department store who slips because of the owner’s failure to clean up standing water from a slippery floor. While the facts of slip and fall cases can vary widely, the important consideration is simply that a business or land owner failed to take some corrective action and you were injured as a result.

If your personal injury lawyer can prove the business or land owner’s liability, you will be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If it is proven that the business owner’s liability was so reckless as to be “willful and wanton,” you will also be entitled to recover punitive damages.
