You should never have to worry about your safety when you go on to somebody else’s property.

Premises liability cases center around the failure of property owners or their employees to keep guests and invitees safe. Property owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are free from hazards that could cause others harm. If they cannot remedy a known hazard any reasonable amount of time, they should properly warn guests of the potential hazards (usually with visible warning signs and cordoning off an area). Some of the most common situations that arise that can result in premises liability lawsuits include the following:
When property owners feel to secure their premises, their guests can sustain a variety of injuries. Our premises liability lawyers commonly help clients who have sustained the following:
Some premises injuries may be relatively minor, but that does not mean they will not cause costly medical bills or lost income for victims. For serious injuries, a victim could suffer from lasting disabilities that lead to tremendous medical expenses.

When a homeowner knows of a hazardous condition on their property, they have a duty to fix it or to properly warn their guests about the dangerous condition. When you are injured on private property, it will be necessary to file a claim with that person’s homeowner’s insurance in order to recover compensation.
