Why File a Premises Liability Claim?
When faced with the physical and emotional damages of an injury accident, the recovery process can become all the more overwhelming if you must handle the financial burden of costly medical bills and lost wages. If another person is responsible for such personal and financial harm, you are entitled to reimbursement.
By working with an experienced and aggressive lawyer, not only will you be able to hold the at-fault party accountable for their negligent actions, but you can also obtain the financial support you need for recovery. Additionally, a successful premises liability claim may prevent a similar catastrophic injury accident from occurring in the same location in the future.
What are Common Premises Liability Accidents?
Property owners, such as a commercial landlords or proprietors, owe their patrons a duty to take reasonable care to ensure that the premise is safe. This includes regularly inspecting the building for hazards and responding in a timely manner to known dangers.
While property owners are not accountable for every injury accident or illness that occurs on the premise, they may be liable for failure to provide reasonably safe conditions. The following are often the result of property owner negligence:
Slip and Falls Accidents - A property owner may be liable if s/he fails to repair or warn others about conditions, such as standing water, broken stairways, poor lighting or cluttered walkways that result in harmful slips, trips or falls.
Toxic Exposure - Property owners are liable for preventing or repairing conditions that may expose residents or visitors to asbestos, harmful chemicals, mold or other dangers.
Negligent Security - A property owner must also take reasonable preventive measures against potential criminal activities in which others may be harmed, such as assault, theft, or burglary.
Not every accident that occurs on another's property warrants a premises liability claim, however. For example, a landlord may not be accountable for accidents that occur because an individual failed to avoid an obvious danger or ignored warnings.
