What Is a Premises Liability Case?
A premises liability case is a type of civil suit that is brought against a property owner. The suit alleges that a dangerous condition existed on the property owner’s property, that the property owner knew or should have known of the condition, that the property owner failed to remedy the condition in a reasonable amount of time, and that the dangerous condition led to the plaintiff’s injuries. Note that the duty a property owner owes to someone one their property does not extend to trespassers.
Types of Premises Liability Claims
A premises liability claim may exist any time that one person is harmed on the property of another. Common types of accidents and incidents that may result in a premises liability suit include:
- Dog bites;
- Drowning and near-drowning;
- Slip and falls;
- Retail accidents;
- Negligent security cases (i.e. assault and battery); and
- Attractive nuisance cases (when a small child is injured on another’s property as a result of an attractive nuisance, such as a trampoline).
If you can prove that your injuries stemmed from a hazardous condition on the property and that the property owner knew or should have known of the condition, then you can hold the owner liable for the harm you’ve suffered. Types of damages that are recoverable in a premises liability claim include:
- Noneconomic losses. Noneconomic losses are the intangible types of harm you’ve suffered, such as pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
- Economic losses. If you have incurred medical bills, lost wages, and other financial harms as a result of your accident, you can seek compensation for these losses in full.
How Our Lawyers Can Help
Our lawyers can help you by gathering evidence to prove that your injuries would not have occurred but for the hazardous condition, and that the property owner knew of the condition yet failed to act to mitigate harm. We can also help to prove the extent of the damages you’ve suffered, as well as negotiate your settlement amount. While most cases settle out of court, we can pursue litigation if appropriate.
