Have you been involved in a Premises Liability injury?
Premises liability law covers claims that result where an injury was caused by some type of unsafe or defective condition on someone’s property. They can take place at private residences, commercial property or commercial buildings. Some of the more common places where there are cases involving premises liability are in casinos and large retail stores including grocery, discount and malls due to the large volume of people that enter their places of business.
If you have sustained a personal injury due to the property owner’s negligence or recklessness, you may be able to get compensation for your injuries. This may include compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and loss of earning capacity. If a loved one has died due to premise liability you may be able to file a wrongful death claim.
Among the top reasons people file premises liability claims are:
- Falling Object
- Trip and falls
- Slip and fall either inside or outside of the building
- Dog Bites
- Inadequate fencing of swimming pools
- Failed maintenance – loose guardrails, collapsed ceiling, hole in the floor, dangerous sidewalks or other hazardous conditions.
- Crime committed on the business owner’s property against the employee or customer
The insurance company for the property where the accident occurred may try to quickly contact anyone injured as a result of the accident and attempt to settle any claims before the injured person has consulted an attorney. If you or a loved one are involved in a premises liability or other accident we strongly recommend that you do not talk to the insurance company for the property owner before you consult with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney.
