Premises liability refers to the liability the owner or occupier of a building or property has when a visitor suffers an accident on his or her property. If the owner was aware of the dangerous condition or was negligent, he or she could be held liable for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages incurred. 
A Belleville man is on the road to recovery after a dog attack left him with serious injuries. Known as man’s best friend, dogs offer companionship, security, assistance, and other support to their owners. Sometimes, however, they cause serious injuries that have lasting effects.  A week after he was attacked by two unknown dogs, the Belleville man remained in the hospital, recovering from the dog bite injuries and receiving rabies treatment.

Property Owner Pays $1 Million In Women’s Shooting Death

Posted By:

In a new twist in premises liability law, a settlement has been reached by the family of a woman killed in a drug-related shooting. The family will receive $1 million from the owner of a crime-ridden apartment complex for the wrongful death of this young woman.

Decedent was 19 years old when she was gunned down in August of 2011 while sitting outside the apartment complex. She was an innocent bystander without knowledge of the drug transaction that resulted in the fatal shooting.

The lawsuit against the property owner alleged that the owner failed to provide adequate security given the acknowledged dangerous threats which existed in the complex. Two men were killed in the shooting a young infant who subsequently recovered from a gunshot would to the head.

This settlement will act as a warning and precedent for all landlords who lease properties in crime ridden areas. Many of these units are Section 8 housing where the landlord receives guaranteed rental payments from the government. Instead of maintaining the properties, these landlords ofter pocket the income and neglect the safety of there tenants. Tenants in these properties need to be proactive in demanding that the property is secure, in repair and up to code. City authorities are spread thin and cannot be counted on to assure that every building is safe and habitable. Tenant involvement is required – the “old squeaky wheel” will help to protect the safety of all tenants.
