What is premises liability?
Premises liability is a subset of personal injury law which is concerned with property owners’ liability for the injuries visitors to their property suffer because of a hazardous condition that could have been mitigated. Property owners and businesses owe a duty of care to their customers and clients to provide a safe environment for them to visit. When the property owner’s negligence causes an injury, the injured person may have grounds for legal action.
Examples of different types of premises liability cases
There are countless ways in which a person can sustain an injury on another person’s property including:
- Slip and fall
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Assault due to inadequate security
- Swimming pool accidents
- Building fires and explosions
- Carbon monoxide poisoning, other toxic fume exposures
- Animal attacks, dog bites
- Inadequate maintenance
What are some common injuries in premises liability cases?
Slip and fall accidents are probably the most common premises liability cases. A person can suffer all types of injuries in premises liability accidents including:
- Head injury
- Traumatic brain injury
- Back, neck, and shoulder injury
- Broken bones
- Cuts and lacerations
- Spinal cord injury, paralysis
Who can be held liable after a premises liability injury?
The property owner, the business owner, or the party responsible for maintaining the property in a safe condition, whether it is a public or a private space, can be held liable for injuries if they knew or should have known about the hazardous condition. If the property owner knew about the dangerous condition but had not yet had a chance to make repairs, he or she is obligated to post signs warning unsuspecting visitors about the hazard.
How can a Bismarck premises liability lawyer help me after an injury?
Whether your case settles out of court or goes to trial, you will require the services of a skilled premises liability lawyer who will hold property owners accountable for your injuries. We investigate the circumstances leading to your injury. We gather medical evidence and work with subject matter experts to help explain how the property defect caused your injury. We speak with anyone who might have witnessed your accident and prove how the property owner should have been aware of the hazard and corrected it before someone got hurt.
Our lawyers represent you in tough negotiations with the property owner’s insurance company and we fight for the best possible settlement for you that will cover your needs now, and for any future care you might require.
What if I don’t have the money to hire a lawyer to represent me?
The premises liability lawyers at the Larson Law Firm in Bismarck accept injury cases on a contingency fee basis, so there is no need to be concerned about how you will pay a costly retainer upfront. You will not pay attorney fees until we have successfully recovered compensation for you.
What compensation might I receive for my injuries?
Once you have successfully held the property owners liable for the injuries you sustained on their property, there are several types of compensation that you could recover depending on the specifics of your case including the following:
- Medical expenses related to the accident injury past, current, and future
- Lost wages and benefits from time missed at work for hospitalization and recuperation from your injuries
- Diminished earning capacity for disabling injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Severe emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
