What is Premises Liability?
Businesses, retailers, entertainment venues, and property owners in general are responsible for the safety of their premises. When disrepair or physical hazards cause injury to patrons and customers, those who own or manage the property in question can be held responsible. The Minneapolis premises liability attorneys at GoldenbergLaw, PLLC, our lawyers work with accident investigators and safety experts in exposing negligence on the part of hotels, businesses, retailers, sports arenas, schools, and others in causing accidents that injure our clients. While property owners are responsible for the physical upkeep of their premises, they can also be held liable for security lapses that result in physical assault.
If you have suffered physical injury due to hazardous conditions or an absence of personal security, contact premises liability attorneys at the law office of GoldenbergLaw, PLLC today and schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.

Foreseeability and Premises Liability
The issue of liability often revolves around the concepts of a “duty of care” and “foreseeability.” Since businesses and retailers expect patrons on their premises, they have a duty to ensure people aren’t exposed to hazards and dangers. Additionally, when construction is necessary or when the threat of crime is a possibility, property owners should foresee potential dangers and take action to either minimize or eradicate them.
