Premises Liability Claims

Is The Property Owner Responsible For Your Injuries?

You can get injured just about anywhere, through no fault of your own. At a friend’s house, at the store, in a public park — it’s possible you could experience a serious injury at any of these places. To recover damages (compensation), you may need to file a premises liability claim. 

Premises liability is the term used to describe the duty of care a property owner has in regard to people who are physically on their property. In other words, was something done — or not done — by the property owner that caused your injuries on his or her property? A successful premises liability case means the judge or jury believes the answer to that question is, “yes.”

The duty of care you are owed from a property owner varies slightly based on whether or not you were legally permitted to be on the premises. Generally, though, you have to prove that: 

  • You were owed a duty of care
  • The property owner breached that duty of care
  • You suffered injuries as a result of the duty-of-care breach

As straightforward as that sounds, premises liability cases are often incredibly complex. To have the best chance of success in court, you need an attorney who’s ready to fight for you and present a strong case.
