Premises Liability

Injuries Caused by Negligent Property Owners

When a property owner neglects to keep their property or properties safe, they are endangering you and those around you.

HOLDING NEGLIGENT PROPERTY OWNERS ACCOUNTABLE

No one should worry about being injured when going about their daily lives. However, every day there are more and more people getting hurt in accidents because of someone else’s negligence. Premises liability holds business owners, city governments, and property owners liable for injuries that occur on their properties including matters of negligent maintenance or unsafe premises. If a property owner knew about a hazard on their property and failed to take steps to resolve it, they may be found negligent and be held responsible for your injuries.

WHAT DO I DO AFTER A PREMISES LIABILITY ACCIDENT?

One of the most common premises liability accidents is a slip or fall. Whether caused by a wet floor or an object on the ground, if you suffered an injury from a fall due to the negligence of a property owner, you may be entitled to compensation. But what do you do after being injured? Following these steps may help build your premises liability case:

  1. Seek medical attention for your injuries
    • Ensure that you or loved ones’ well being is taken care of before taking any other actions
  2. Report the incident to the owner or manager of the property
    • Make sure to get a copy of the incident report
  3. Take pictures of the area where the accident happened
