Don’t Let Your Injury Go Ignored

When you walk into a store, office or any other business—or even when you visit somebody else’s home—you don’t expect to be walking into danger.

So if that property owner left a hazard unattended and you got hurt, you feel wronged.

You have been wronged.

You shouldn’t be left with the costs of recovery—medical bills, lost work time—because someone else failed to take care of their space.

You may have a premises liability claim, which can provide financial compensation to correct this unfair situation.

But the business or other property owner might fight you.

    What Injuries Create a Premises Liability Case?

    Premises liability cases are part of personal injury law. At the core of any personal injury case is the idea of negligence.

    The reason for your injury was somebody else’s negligence.

    Any of these situations could result from negligence by the owner of a property you visit:

    • Slip-and-fall injuries
    • Injuries from tripping on obstructions
    • Injuries from falling objects
    • Inadequate security on the premises, leading to injury
    • Injuries from dangerous conditions on construction sites
    • Injuries from unsafe swimming pools

    Premises liability is the reason you see stores or restaurants putting up yellow “Caution: Wet Floor” signs right after mopping.

    The store has a legal duty to demonstrate care for visitors’ safety, eliminating hazards whenever possible. And in situations when a hazard appears with little notice, the store has a responsibility to warn you about it.

    How They Might Fight You

    After you’re hurt on someone else’s property, you could receive compensation for your hardship from a settlement with the property owner or their insurance company.

    But sometimes they don’t agree you deserve what you’re asking for. You may need to file a premises liability lawsuit in court.

    An experienced premises liability lawyer can help you deal with opposing arguments like these:

    • The danger was so obvious that you should’ve seen it and avoided it.
    • You got distracted and failed to pay attention to hazards.
    • You were on a part of the property where visitors aren’t allowed or expected.
    • You were inappropriately dressed for the conditions (wearing unsafe footwear, for example).
    • The property owner clearly marked the dangerous area with signs or blocked the area off with cones or other barriers.
    • The owner didn’t have the chance to address the hazard because it had only just appeared.

    Premises liability cases aren’t always as simple as they seem. Sometimes, courts assign a percentage of fault to you and to the property owner. The amount you receive is reduced by your percentage of fault.

    And you have two years from the date of the incident to file your personal injury claim. If you wait longer, that’s another argument the other side will use to throw out your claim.

    We want to see you get the best result possible so you can move on from this painful experience. You won’t pay an attorney fee until we win compensation for you.
