Businesses, even private parties, are indemnified by Utah law to have premises that are safe for shoppers, tenants, and hotel guests. Stairways must be cleared of obstructions, areas where commoners are not allowed to enter must be properly fenced off, and rental units must be safe for those paying for their occupancy. It’s unfortunate that many premises owners fail to uphold their end of the bargain, which causes serious personal injury to individuals statewide.
In 2015, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported 31,744,062 nationwide nonfatal injuries, of which 29.5% of those reported accidents resulted from unintentional falls, and another 12.8% involved victims being struck by or up against another inanimate object. While these statistics fail to account for those which occurred negligently, it’s safe to assume with the volume of cases in Utah courts that plenty resulted from premises liability issues.
