Many Iowans are active during the summer and fall seasons vacationing, getting together with family or friends, biking, running, walking and attending various events. When visiting the many locations on a busy itinerary, injuries can occur because of unexpected or unsafe property conditions.
Premises liability law involves injury that occurs in places such as residential and commercial buildings, shopping centers and parking facilities, hotels, restaurants, amusement parks, airports, and nightclubs. People hurt at any of these various locations due to negligence on the part of the owner or operator of the premises may have grounds for a personal injury claim.
It could be any number of injuries such as a fall from an unprotected height, faulty machinery at an amusement park, slips and falls caused by uneven or broken pavement and falls from structures, like decks and stairs due to disrepair and a whole host of other dangers from unsafe property conditions. The general rule under the law is that owners or operators of the premises have a duty to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition or, at the very least, provide a posted warning regarding a dangerous condition that is known to the owner/operator or that they should have known about.
