The complexities of premises liability claims

Premises liability may not be the most common of areas in personal injury law, but the dangers of premises liability injuries can be just as serious as those resulting from motor vehicle accidents. Slip-and-fall accidents are perhaps the most common types of premises liability injuries, and such accidents can lead to severe health concerns including fractured bones or head injuries. However, premises liability covers so many more issues than slip-and-fall accidents. Any dangerous property condition that a property owner does not fix or fails to forewarn could be grounds for premises liability.

Dangerous property conditions are more than just areas of disrepair, such as broken stairways. For example, being bitten by an aggressive dog that lives on the property could also be grounds for premises liability, assuming you were not warned that the dog was a threat. This is why you see signs that warn you to beware of dog. Unfortunately, not all law firms respect the complexities of premises liability claims or truly acknowledge their multifaceted nature.

Some believe that premises liability cases are a simple matter of proving negligence or fault on the part of the property owner and getting compensation for their injuries, but there is so much more to it than that. Depending on the severity of injuries sustained in a premises liability case and the circumstances surrounding the injury, victims could be entitled to much more compensation than they realize.

If you are injured on someone else’s property, consider meeting with a personal injury attorney who is familiar with such cases.
