If your back injury occurred on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation under the legal principle known as premises liability. Business and property owners have a duty to provide a safe environment for customers, employees, guests, visitors and others who enter their property. There are a variety of circumstances where premises liability may apply including slip and fall, elevator and escalator accidents, and criminal attacks which occur as a result of negligent security. Back and neck injuries caused by overzealous security may also fall under premises liability or may be the responsibility of the security guard’s employer if a separate security company was used.
