What can lead to a premises liability accident?

Owners of a premises have the responsibility to maintain a safe environment. This is to ensure that those traveling on the premises are not harmed in any way by a potential hazard. If a hazard is present, the owner of the premises has the responsibility of removing the hazard in a reasonable amount of time. There are many different hazards that could be present to prove a premises liability case. These conditions can include slippery floors, uneven floors or holes, poorly built or damaged stairs, electrical hazards, exposure to dangerous chemicals, dangerous animals and a lack of security. A lack of security can include poor lighting, non-working security cameras and much more. Security is needed to not only prevent criminal activity, but to make sure the premises is being monitored daily.

How do I build a case?

One of the easiest steps to building a case for premises liability is by being examined for your injuries. When you have a doctor check out your injuries, they will document what injuries you sustained and to what extent you have been hurt. This can be used in your case to prove premises liability. If you are able to do so, upon the accident, take pictures of the present hazard. This may be able to show evidence supporting your claim. If any witnesses were present, you should get their contact information so that you can acquire their testimony. The owner of the premises has a liability to remove any hazards from the area. If they knew or should have reasonably known about the present hazard, you may be able to win your lawsuit against them.

What can I gain?

After winning a premises liability case, individuals may be entitled to receive damages. These damages may come in the form of economic or non-economic damages. This means that they can receive monetary compensation for their accident and its effects. Economic damages can cover the cost of medical bills, lost wages and lost future wages. Non-economic damages may be able to provide compensation for the pain and suffering you have gone through and the emotional turmoil as a result of the accident. An attorney can assist you with gathering evidence to build your case.
