Property owners and managers have a duty to keep the premises under their control safe so that people who enter the property are not harmed. If you were injured due to an unsafe condition on property, or someone you love died as a result of such an injury, you may have a claim for damages. You need to consult with a premises liability attorney who will review the circumstances of your case and advise you on how to proceed.
Slip and falls
According to the National Safety Council (NSC), approximately nine million people a year are treated in emergency rooms for slip and fall accidents. Nearly 28,000 of them die as a result of their injuries. Whether you trip and fall in a business or at a residence, the owner or manager may be liable for your injuries.
There are factors that influence whether or not you can collect, such as why you were on the property and whether the owner or manager knew of the dangerous condition and failed to correct it. Another important fact is whether or not you were also negligent and contributed to your accident.
Criminal act committed due to inadequate security
If you were assaulted in a location where you had a lawful right to be, and the assault was due to the failure of the owner or manager to provide adequate lighting or security, you may be able to collect for your damages. Each case must be evaluated on an individual basis and an investigation of the circumstances promptly conducted.
Injured due to a hazardous or dangerous condition
A complex body of law may allow you to collect damages if you were injured due to a hazardous or dangerous condition on the property of another. There are a lot of factors that an attorney will evaluate to determine if you have a claim.
