Premises liability cases involve accidents that occur in residential or commercial buildings.
You may have a premises liability case against a landlord, homeowner, or building manager who has been negligent in keeping their property reasonably safe to avoid injuries or loss.
Premises claims include but are not limited to the following examples:
Proving you have a strong premises liability case against a property owner may be difficult without professional assistance.
Premises liability lawyers review cases by assessing a property owner’s level of negligence in the accident you may have incurred in their property.
To prove an owner has been negligent, there must be evidence of the property owner’s failure to provide standard care with regard to their property.
For instance, if you incurred an injury in a commercial building after slipping on a wet floor, the property owner may be liable for damages for failing to provide proper warning such as wet floor signs.
Evidence for this may come from witnesses or security footage.
Premises liability relates to the lawsuits you can pursue as a victim of illness or injury due to a property owner’s negligence.
For instance, if a property owner’s home has faulty floorboards, causing you to fall through and twist your ankle, the injury you incurred in their property makes the owner liable for damages.
Meanwhile, personal liability relates to the lawsuits you can pursue as a victim of illness or injury due to another person’s actions. Personal liability also covers damages to your property.
For instance (using the same home situation as above), if you incur an injury in another’s property but it was because the owner accidentally dropped an object on your foot, they become liable for damages due to their actions.
If you incurred any injuries on another’s property, we can look into your situation and identify your legal options.
