Premises liability is an area of law that governs the responsibilities property owners have toward visitors and guests. Essentially, premises liability law requires premises owners to take reasonable measures to keep visitors and guests safe from preventable harm. If you pay attention to the news, you've probably heard stories of customers filing lawsuits against businesses when they suffer injuries. Although there may be a lot of these stories, not all of these lawsuits are valid. In fact, premises liability laws prevent injured visitors and guests from just filing claims for any reason. Certain factors and criteria must apply.
To understand if you may be able to file a premises liability claim after being injured on another's property, it's important to understand the following:
If you do have valid grounds for filing a premises liability lawsuit - including a slip and fall claim - you can pursue financial compensation for your medical bills, lost work wages, emotional injuries, and other damages you suffered as a direct result of your accident and injury.
