Protect Your Business From a Premises Liability Lawsuit

Businesses have a responsibility to keep their customers safe. Here’s how to make sure you are protected from a premises liability lawsuit.

Every business should want to make their environment safe for customers and employees, but any safety issue can be means for a premises liability lawsuit.  From slip and fall to major injury, you can be held responsible for the safety — or lack of safety — for everyone who steps inside your business. To make sure you are protected against a premises liability lawsuit, follow these tips:

Check Your Contracts

Landlords often include a clause to ensure that you carry the responsibility for keeping the safety and maintenance of your business.  Be aware of these clauses and be sure to take these responsibilities seriously. Even if your landlord is sued, you may be the one who is burdened with the lawsuit and financial expenses.

Inspect & Maintain

The safety of your building is not something to let slide off your busy to-do list.  Inspecting your business regularly for safety issues like leaks, inadequate lighting or fire exit availability will help keep you aware of any issues you need to fix.  Be sure to have any safety issues you find documented and corrected as soon as possible by trusted professionals.

If you find a safety hazard and can not fix it immediately, be sure to issue warnings to customers and employees.  Warning signs are not perfect solutions but will give you the peace of mind that your customers are aware of risks.

General Liability Insurance

Having insurance can help mitigate any financial burden of a premises liability lawsuit.  If your business has been accused of a safety issue, insurance payments can help fix the problem or be put toward a lawsuit cost.

Have a Lawyer for Your Business
