Premises Liability Protects Your Rights After A Personal Injury
July 14, 2015
The negligence of a property owner shouldn’t affect you, but if you’ve been injured because they didn’t take care of or maintain a property, that’s exactly what their negligence has done. You’ve been affected and have been left with medical bills, pain and suffering to deal with. Instead of enjoying your day out to a restaurant, shop, or venue, you’ve been left in the hospital and have had to deal with unnecessary stress and frustration.
Whether you were hurt at a nightclub, apartment complex or a private home, you have a right to make a claim in some instances that can help you get the compensation you need to pay down medical bills and to cover your lost wages as you recover. If you can show that the property owner knew that there was damage to the property but left it there, then you can show that your injury could have been prevented.
Property owners have a responsibility to keep their homes and businesses in a reasonably safe condition. Did you cut yourself on a broken doorknob that wasn’t replaced, trip on icy stairs that hadn’t been salted, or slip on water that was left without a “wet floor” sign? These are all potentially negligent acts that led to you getting injured. If the owner knew these issues were present, why didn’t he or she make sure that customers or guests were safe by repairing or cleaning up the dangerous area?
