Premises Liability/Injured on Someone Else's Property
The legal theory of premises liability holds property owners and residents liable for accidents and injuries that occur on that property. The kinds of incidents that may result in premises liability claims can range from a slip and fall to an injury suffered on an amusement park ride.
Determining whether the standard of reasonableness required by an owner/possessor of property toward someone on the property has been met requires an examination of numerous factors including:
Circumstances under which the visitor entered the property;
Use to which the property is put;
Foreseeability of the accident or injury that occurred;
Reasonableness of the owner/possessor's effort to repair a dangerous condition or warn visitors.
If you or a loved one has suffered a premises liability injury, you should speak with an experienced attorney to ensure that your legal rights to compensation are fully assessed and protected.
