Every year, thousands of people are seriously injured in slip-and-fall accidents caused by dangerous or poorly maintained properties. Tragically, some are even killed. Lawsuits involving slip-and-fall accidents are commonly referred to as premises liability claims. Our accident injury lawyers in Wyoming have decades of experience with these types of lawsuits.
Premises liability law is the area of law that holds the owner of land or premises responsible for certain injuries suffered by others on their property. Under Wyoming law, property owners and building managers are responsible for the safety of their visitors and can be held liable for personal injury caused by dangerous or unsafe conditions.

Premises liability laws apply to private residences, places of business, commercial facilities, and public buildings. The types and severity of injuries sustained in these cases can vary significantly and are frequently caused by:
- Poor lighting
- Loose steps, stairs, and/or handrails
- Holes and/or cracks in sidewalks and/or concrete
- Icy or wet walkways
- Inadequate security
- Animal bites
If you have been hurt on someone else’s property, whether it is a residence or a grocery store, contact our personal accident lawyers by calling 307-527-7891.
Some of the most common injuries suffered in premises liability cases include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Wrongful death
In addition to protecting people from structural defects and hazardous conditions, Wyoming’s negligent security laws require property owners and managers to take reasonable security measures to protect the public from criminal acts that take place on their property. Most of these cases involve residential buildings, such as college dorms, apartment complexes, and hotels. The injuries can arise from criminal acts such as robbery, rape, assault, and/or battery.
Tenants and visitors in Wyoming have the right to reasonably expect a safe environment wherever they go. These expectations may include:
- Locked buildings
- Adequately lit public areas, such as courtyards and stairwells
- On-site security personnel
- Functional security equipment, such as door buzzers and security cameras
