When you are injured on the premises or property of another, the owner may be legally responsible for your injuries if the injury is due to the owner's negligence or the negligence of the owner's employees or agents.
If you have suffered an injury of this type, you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit for your injuries and recover for your medical expenses, wage loss, pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, and lost enjoyment of life.
Injuries on properties can include those from:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog bites or maulings
- Exposure to toxic or hazardous substances such as lead or mold
Generally, an injured party must prove the following: (1) either that the property owner failed to maintain the property or created unsafe conditions which caused the injury; (2) knew about the unsafe hazard but didn't alert or warn visitors or tenants; (3) was not careful concerning unsafe conditions which might attract children or took actions or neglected conditions that caused damage to a neighboring property.
