REASONS TO CONSIDER A PREMISES LIABILITY LAWSUIT
The nature of dangers that one might encounter on another’s property depends upon many different factors. The intended purpose of a structure, the number of people it is expected to accommodate, and the geographical area in which it is located are just a few of the influential details.
Under premises liability law, however, the property owner is presumed to bear responsibility for injuries regardless of the cause. Some examples of potential bases for a premises liability lawsuit include:
Fire related injuries
Lack of maintenance
Uneven pavement or flooring
Filing lawsuits allows victims of negligence to win compensation for the losses they have faced. This compensation may include repayment for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages due to missed work, and more.
