When we enter a premises, whether it is a hotel or a pub or a hall we rented to throw a party in, we expect that premises to be reasonably free of hazards. If there are any dangers that threaten us, we expect to be warned of those dangers, such as a wet floor sign being placed on a freshly mopped walkway warning us to tread with care. However, not every premises owner is responsible and safety-minded, and too many of them are willfully negligent in the interests of saving a few pennies. Corners are cut, codes ignored, and this can lead to devastating injuries for innocent people. If you were injured while on a premises such as a restaurant or rented banquet hall and want to talk to a premises liability lawyer, the attorneys at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. can help you navigate the legal process.
When people are invited onto a premises, whether a rented hall or restaurant or hotel that is open to the public, the owner or manager of the premises has a duty of care to those people. This means that they have a duty to ensure that the premises is reasonably safe for use, and that any safety issues will be pointed out to guests or customers. For example, if a hotel lobby has loose carpeting because of missing carpet tacks, the owner or manager needs to either warn guests with a sign and cordon off the dangerous area, or put down new carpet tacks to secure the loose carpeting in order to make the area safe to tread on again.
