Suits in premises liability occur when an individual is injured on another person’s property. This type of lawsuit is based on the fact that property owners are required by law to provide reasonably safe conditions on their property for those who are rightfully on the property. Therefore, if an individual has sustained injuries due to the negligence or wrongful acts of the property owner, the injured party may be entitled to compensation for the expenses incurred as a result of the accident, such as medical bills, or lost wages from days missed at work.
There are several types of accidents that can give rise to premises liability claims, including, but not limited to:
– Injuries from fallen objects
– Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents
– Negligent security
– Elevator, escalator or stairway accidents
– Accidents due to poorly lit areas
– Accidents due to negligent clean up or maintenance
Before an injured party can be compensated for the injuries they sustained in a premises liability claim, they must establish that the property owner is liable for the accident. Occasionally, a property owner will not be held responsible for the injuries sustained on their property. Therefore, an individual who has been injured on another’s property will need the assistance of an experienced attorney to determine whether or not the injured person can be entitled to compensation.
