When you go out in public, you expect that the places you visit will be safe. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Injuries that can occur on someone else’s property include slip and fall accidents, trip and fall accidents, dog bites, and assault. Premises liability is a legal term that refers to scenarios wherein a property owner may be held legally and financially liable for injuries that occur on their property. This area of civil law addresses, among other injurious scenarios, accidents in stores, restaurants, schools, and other public places.

There are a few things you should know if you are injured on someone else’s property:

  1. The property owner may potentially be held liable for your injuries. If they were negligent in keeping the property safe, they may be held responsible for their failures.
  1. There are different types of negligence that can lead to an injury lawsuit. These include negligence in security, maintenance, and design.
  1. You may be able to file a lawsuit against a property owner. If you are injured on someone else’s property, speak with an experienced premises liability lawyer about your options. They can help you file a claim and/or a lawsuit to secure the compensation you deserve.

To win a negligence case, you must be able to prove that the property owner failed to meet their duty of care. This can include failing to keep the property safe, maintaining it properly, or providing adequate security.
