Were You Injured on Someone Else’s Property?
Suffering an accident or injury can have devastating impact upon a victim’s life, presenting a number of physical challenges, extended recovery, medical bills, emotional trauma, and financial hardship. If you or a loved one was injured on another’s property as a result of negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for harm caused in such situations as a slip or fall, dog bite, electrocution, or swimming pool accident.
Each state approaches premises liability differently, with some focusing more on whether the injured visitor was on the property legally or illegally, and others more on the condition of the property or the activities engaged in by both owner and visitor. Filing a personal injury claim in a premises liability case can be confusing and difficult, but help is available by contacting a skilled attorney from our firm.
What is premises liability?
An owner or operator of a property has a responsibility to take all necessary precautions to protect the safety of visitors and patrons, which includes repairs and maintenance and postings about dangerous conditions on the property. If reasonable care is not given to prevent harm, an owner can be held liable for injuries that could have been prevented by due diligence. A victim may be able to pursue compensation for injuries that resulted from such things as:
- Wet, slippery, or oily floors
- Cracked or broken sidewalks
- Lack of security around pools, drains, or gates, or faulty security measures and locks
- Falling objects
- Broken smoke detectors
- Lack of security
- Poor lighting
- Unmaintained stairways or handrails
