Representing the Rights of Individuals that Sustain Injuries while on the Property of Others
Property owners can be held responsible for maintaining their property in a safe condition. There are a number of local laws and federal regulations that must be followed when an owner of property opens it to the public. In addition, property owners and tenants have a legal duty to ensure that their premises are safe from unreasonably dangerous hazards. A property owner who fails to do so may be found negligent and subsequently held responsible for any injuries suffered on their property.
Types of Premises Liability Cases
Premises liability lawsuits can vary tremendously depending on the facts and circumstances of the matter. Some examples of premises liability cases that Kilo Flynn handles include:
- Slip/Trip and fall accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Staircase injuries
- Dog bites
- Negligent security incidents
- Construction site accidents
- Icy or poorly maintained sidewalks and parking lots
- Toxic or Hazardous conditions (i.e. lead paint, mold, asbestos etc.)
Given the variety of cases that fall within the realm of premises liability lawsuits, there are a number of injuries that can result from various conditions of the property. Bones can be broken after slipping on an icy sidewalk or falling down a poorly lit stairwell. People can get shocked or burned by electricity or injured in buildings that have not been properly maintained. Or worse, people can become victims of assault, robbery, or rape, in buildings or on the property of business establishments that do not have proper security maintaining the premises.
Compensation for Injuries in a Premises Liability Lawsuit
As discussed, a property owner may be responsible for the safety of guests, visitors, and in some circumstances, even trespassers. If someone has been injured on the property of another, then they may be entitled to compensation for their losses from the property owner. Injured people can be compensated for medical bills or any other expenses associated with the injury, including loss of wages (future and past), or for any emotional damages. An experienced premises liability attorney will best be able to assess the claim and determine possible avenues for relief.
