Premises Cases

How Do I Know If I Have a Premises Case?

If you were allowed to be on someone’s property and their negligence led to you suffering an injury, then you may very well have a premises case. 

Many of the cases we’ve handled for our clients include a customer slipping and falling in a store, at a restaurant, and so forth. These cases could also include tripping, falling, and suffering an injury on a sidewalk, and elsewhere. 

That said, simply falling and being hurt on someone else’s property is not enough. You have to be allowed to be there (trespassers, for example, are not owed a duty of care). Plus, your attorneys have to be able to prove that your injury was caused due to the negligence of the property owner/manager/other party. 

When we take your case, we conduct a thorough investigation. Through that, we can learn the truth. Often, we find evidence that the property owner/manager failed to notice an unsafe condition that led to our client’s injuries or, alternatively, they ignored that unsafe condition or event that caused it. 

What Damages Could I Receive for My Premises Case?

In a premises case, you can file for multiple kinds of compensation. So often, these accidents lead to injuries that require medical treatment. We can help you to recover compensation for your medical bills. This can include money to pay for your medication, doctor’s visits, transportation to and from the doctor, therapy, and more. 

In the aftermath of an injury, you may have to miss work. If so, we can help you recover lost wages for the money you would have made. If you’re unable to continue your job in the same capacity, you can receive compensation for future lost wages as well. 

You can receive compensation for more than just your medical bills and lost wages, however. An injury can cause you tremendous pain, suffering, emotional distress, cause you to enjoy life less, and more – you can recover compensation for all of that as well. 

During your free case evaluation, we’ll let you know what your claim is worth. Then, we’ll do everything in our power to make sure you get it.

Who’s Liable for My Premises Case?

In many cases, the property owner/manager is liable for your injury on their premises. They may have caused the unsafe condition which led to your injury. Or, they may have failed to take reasonable steps in maintaining their property, which caused them to ignore or just not be aware of the dangers. 

They may have had actual or constructive notice of the unsafe condition but did not do enough (or anything at all) to fix the condition. 

Sometimes, multiple parties are liable. For example, if you fell on someone’s stairs, maybe the owner is liable because they didn’t maintain the stairs. Or, alternatively, perhaps there was a manufacturing defect with the stairs that contributed to your injury. 

When we take your case, we will find all parties responsible and bring a suit against each of them. This is all done so that you can recover all of the compensation you should.

After suffering an injury on someone’s property, it’s understandable to not want to reach out to an attorney. However, the sooner you contact an experienced attorney, the better. In this state, you have three years (or in some cases less) to file a suit from the date of the injury. That may seem like a long period of time but it can go quickly. 

We work on contingency. So, you do not pay us unless we win. In the event we do win, your payment will come out of your settlement.
