Have You Been Injured On Another’s Property?
Premises liability concerns injuries sustained due to an unsafe condition on the property of another. This includes swimming pool accidents, slip-and-fall incidents, trip-and-fall incidents, roof cave-ins, faulty or missing railings, dog-bites, treacherous stairs, electrical accidents, lead poisoning and broken glass. It can occur at homes, apartment houses, stores, parks, auto mechanic shops, vacant lots and amusement parks. An owner of the property or occupier with right of control may be liable for such accidents if it can be shown that he or she had a duty of care and was negligent in the performance of that duty. Establishing liability in these cases can be difficult and calls for the services of a personal injury attorney — knowledgeable in the law of premises liability — to build a successful case for recovery of optimum damages.
Duty Of Care
An owner or occupier of property with right of control has a duty of care to maintain the property in a safe condition. His or her duty, however, varies according to whether the victim was a trespasser, a person invited onto the property or a customer. The duties of the owner and occupier also vary and one or both may be liable for an accident. The jury may consider whether the owner or occupier acted with reasonable care to inspect and correct hazardous conditions or to erect security measures to warn or prevent injury to the victim.
Once liability has been shown, the victim may recover medical, hospital, nursing and ambulance expenses, loss of income from missed work, pain and suffering, property losses and rehabilitation costs.
