Have you been injured in a premises accident? Let us fight for you.
Have you suffered an injury due to a defect or hazard on someone else’s property? You may be entitled to compensation under the legal theory of premises liability.
Premises liability makes the owners or operators of stores, restaurants, parking lots, hotels, private properties, etc. responsible for accidents that are caused by their failure to maintain their property in reasonably safe condition.
Victims of premises accidents can seek compensation from the property owner or from their insurance provider to cover a variety of damages including medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.
Now You May Wonder…
…What Is Reasonably Safe Condition?
Reasonably safe condition means free of hazards that could cause reasonably foreseeable accidents. Property owners are expected to inspect their properties regularly to identify such hazards and then correct or warn against them promptly.
When Are Property Owners NOT Liable?
It is important to understand that property owners are not automatically liable for all accidents and injuries that may occur on their premises. Some of the situations where a premises accident claim would not be possible include:
- a freak accident that was not foreseeable
- an accident that was caused by a brand new hazard that the property owner could not have reasonably known about
- an accident caused by an open and obvious hazard that any reasonably careful person would have been able to avoid
- an accident caused by the victim’s own negligence
Due to the complexities of this area of law, it is best to leave the determination of whether or not the property owner is liable and whether or not you have legal grounds for compensation up to your attorney. Alejo Lugo has ample experience in premises accident law and you can rely on him for reliable advice and information.
