Filing a Premises Liability Claim

If you are injured on someone else’s property as a result of the property owner or manager’s negligence, then you may have grounds to file a premises liability claim. The most common types of premises liability claims involve slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents. But how can you prove that a property owner was legally responsible for the injuries you suffered from slipping or tripping and falling on someone else’s property?

There are many factors that come into play. Did the owner of the premises or an employee of the owner cause the spill or dangerous condition that caused your fall? Did the property owner or manager know that a dangerous condition existed on the premises? Did the owner or manager take the necessary steps to fix the hazardous condition or warn visitors about the hazardous condition?

It is important to remember that an injured person cannot file a premises liability claim if the accident was caused by his or her own carelessness or if he or she was on the property illegally. For example, if you trip on your undone shoelaces and fall, you may not file a premises liability claim. On the other hand, if you slipped and fell on spilled laundry detergent on a supermarket aisle, which was not cleaned up in a timely manner, then you may have a valid premises liability claim against the company that owns the supermarket.

Slip-and-fall accidents can result in serious injuries such as broken bones, head injuries, and back injuries. If the accident was caused by the property owner’s negligence, you may seek compensation for damages such as medical expenses, loss of earnings, physical therapy, pain and suffering and emotional distress.
