Skilled help for the injured in premises liability claims
When we step outside our doors and onto other people’s property, we place trust in others to keep their property reasonably safe. Indeed, property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises reasonably safe so that visitors are not injured by property hazards.
If property owners fail to address unreasonably dangerous property conditions and you are injured as a result, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries through a personal injury lawsuit on the basis of premises liability.
A dangerous property condition is one that poses a threat to the health and safety of a person who happens upon it. A common scenario in premises liability cases involves a customer who slips due to a spill on the floor of a grocery store. While it may be impossible to prevent all spills, the owner of the store has a duty to watch out for hazards, and to repair them quickly if and when they are discovered. If they breach this duty, and a customer slips and falls on a spill, the property owner may be held liable.
In a typical slip-and-fall case, an injured person may have medical bills, lost wages and other damages that result directly from the accident. The injured may be able to seek compensation for these and other damages through a personal injury lawsuit.
The attorneys of Anderson & Anderson recognize that dangerous property conditions can exist in residential, retail and commercial locations. They are available now to meet with individuals who have suffered losses due to injuries from dangerous property conditions and to help their clients begin their litigation journeys to secure compensation for their damages.
