Campus Housing Accidents – Who is Liable?
Going to college can be an emotional time for students and their parents/guardians. Most parents feel that their child will be well protected and safe while attending college and living in campus dorms or in off campus housing. Young adults also are experiencing their new found freedom to make their own choices, but with that freedom comes a new level of responsibility. While the majority of college campuses (on or off) have security and safeguards in place, accidents do happen, and when they do, students should be aware of what they should do if an accident happens that results in their being injured.
Premises liability accidents on college campuses cover a wide range. Some of the most common college premises liability accidents include:
- Parking lot injuries, including:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Auto accidents (due to poorly maintained parking lots)
- Pedestrian accidents (due to inadequate lighting)
- Negligent security injuries, including:
- Swimming pool accidents
