Injured on Someone Else’s Property?
Owners and occupants of land and structures have a duty to ensure that the premises are safe for employees, customers, and other visitors to the property. When a person is injured due to negligence on someone else’s property, the victim may have the right to sue the owner.
When You Need a Premises Liability Lawyer
A premises liability lawyer represents victims of negligence in their case, seeking out compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. They negotiate with the property owner’s insurance company to ensure the victim receives the best possible outcome for their case.
Examples of Premises Liability Cases
When a property owner fails to maintain the property and/or keep it reasonably safe, the following premises liability cases may result:
Slip & Fall
Faulty Equipment or Machinery
The simple fact of being injured on someone else’s property—even if the conditions were unsafe—does not necessarily entitle you to compensation based on premises liability. You must be able to prove that the owner knew about the issue and willfully and negligently did not address it. This is where it helps to have a premises liability lawyer on your side who knows the laws well and can make sure you are expertly represented.
