Premises Liability: Seek Compensation For Injuries On Someone Else’s Property
Suffering a serious injury is a painful and disruptive experience, and if the injury occurred on someone else’s property, it’s possible that it wasn’t your fault. Victims have a right to seek compensation for injuries suffered on someone else’s property under an area of personal injury law known as premises liability.
Owners Have An Obligation To Maintain Their Property
Under the law, owners have an implied duty to keep their property free from hazards that could harm other people. For example, customers at the grocery store shouldn’t have to worry about slipping on a freshly mopped floor, and tenants shouldn’t have to worry about falling on a creaky staircase that their landlord refuses to fix.
If you are injured in a scenario like this, you may have a bodily injury claim under premises liability law. Slip-and-fall accidents can result in any of the following injuries, including:
- Broken bones and stress fractures
- Sprains, strains and dislocation of extremities
- Traumatic brain injury
- Bruising and internal bleeding
Each of these injuries deserves the care and attention of an attorney to help achieve maximum compensation for your situation.
