Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that more than one million Americans are victims of slip and fall accidents every year. About 30% of these victims suffer moderate to severe injuries. In Alaska, property owners are required to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition for visitors, employees, customers, and any other person legally permitted on the property. If you were hurt in an accident on another person's property, you may have grounds to hold the property owner responsible and recover compensation for your injuries.

Under Alaska law, property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition. Business owners are also required to take "reasonable care under the circumstances" to prevent injuries or harm to shoppers or customers on the property.
Any property owner or business owner who fails in this expected legal "duty of care" may be held responsible for any accident or injuries suffered by the victim while lawfully on the property.
Through a premises liability claim, an injured person may hold the property owner or business owner responsible for accidents that occurred due to the dangerous, hazardous, or unsafe condition of the premises.

Premises-related accidents are not limited to private properties. Such accidents can also occur on public properties owned or managed by government entities.
Private Properties: These consist of residential and commercial buildings, such as residential apartments, office buildings, restaurants, retail stores, local supermarkets, and grocery stores.
Public Properties: These include public playgrounds, public schools, theme parks, public libraries, sidewalks, roadways, parking lots, oilfields, and government buildings.
In premises liability lawsuits, private and public property negligence are considered to be the same. Just as an injured person can pursue damages for being hurt on private property, victims can also seek compensation from the government for premises-related injuries sustained on public property.
Notwithstanding how severe your injuries may be, proving fault and establishing liability in a premises liability case can involve a lot of complexities. You need to prove that the property owner knew about the unsafe or dangerous conditions but failed to do anything about it.
