Premises Liability Claim Basics
The insurance company for the property owner will conduct a thorough investigation after a premises liability accident to determine fault. Multiple factors are often involved in premises liability cases, including poor construction, faulty building materials, and employee negligence. The insurance company might claim that the property was safe or that the owner wasn’t aware of the problem. The company might even claim that the property owner fixed the hazard as soon as he or she was made aware of it. Then, the insurance company might refuse to pay damages or offer an extremely low settlement that won’t pay all of your expenses. Never accept a settlement without consulting with an experienced premises liability attorney.
When you consult with an attorney, he or she will go over your options. You can attempt to settle the case or go to court. Your attorney will explain which option is right for your circumstances. Then, you can proceed, so you can collect damages for your injury. With an attorney’s help, you can receive compensation to cover your expenses today and in the future.
Premises Liability Accidents
Premises liability accidents occur on both private and public property. Common causes include dog bites, slips and falls, collapsed decks, and falling over objects. You can also suffer an injury due to defective doors, poor security, or exposure to toxic materials. Violent acts are also considered premises liability accidents.
This list is far from all-inclusive. Different situations can occur on private and public property. If the property owner was negligent and failed to keep you safe, you are the victim of a premises liability accident. You can file a personal injury claim against the property owner to collect compensation for your injuries. You might be eligible for compensation, even if you are partially at fault for the accident.

Do I have a case?
If you or a loved one were injured on public or private property due to the owner’s negligence, you might have a claim. Premises liability cases must be filed before the statute of limitations runs out. Successful claims must meet additional criteria, as well. Additional criteria include proving liability and that the accident led to the injury. An experienced premises liability attorney can evaluate the evidence and let you know if you have a case against the property owner. If you do have a case, your attorney will help you take the next steps.
How much is my case worth?
Your attorney can evaluate the evidence and estimate how much your case is worth during the consultation. Various factors go into determining the value of the case, including your degree of fault, if any. Other factors include the severity of your injury, past and future medical bills, and lost wages. The property owner’s degree of negligence also factors into the damages.
