How to Determine if You Have Grounds for a Premises Liability Claim

According to the law, the owner, manager and/or person in possession of a property is generally considered to be liable for any and all injuries sustained on their premises, especially in cases in which that person was previously aware of a potentially dangerous situation, yet failed to remedy it. This is true regardless of whether you are at a mall, grocery store, movie theatre, business, office building, city park, community pool or at another person's home. For example, dead or overgrown trees, inadequately maintained walkways, wet floors, broken stairs, improper signage, malfunctioning equipment and other such conditions could all put guests, visitors and other individuals, who are legally on the property, at risk. When an individual sustains any kind of serious injury while on another person's property, they may have grounds to file a premises liability claim.

There are various factors, however, which must be present in order for a premises liability claim to be valid. The first factor is determining whether or not the owner was aware of the condition(s) which caused the accident. Once it has been determined that the owner knew of the potentially dangerous situation, yet failed to take proper measures to prevent an accident from taking place, you should be able to compile a claim to recover compensation for your medical bills, loss of income and any other expenses associated with your injuries.
