Premises Liability

What Is Premises Liability?

One of the biggest questions our Brandon premises liability lawyer receives is what is premises liability? Property owners owe you a duty of care to keep you safe from foreseeable harm. When a property owner fails to uphold their duty to visitors, this can lead to injury. This is the concept of premise liability.

More specifically, common examples can include:

  • Negligent security
  • Unmaintained sidewalks or walkways
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Falling objects
  • Objects off the floor
  • Unsafe buildings
  • Spills
  • Exposure to hazardous substances

There are many other ways to be injured on another person’s property. If you have suffered an injury, you will need to discuss your case with a Brandon premises liability lawyer.

What Is The Legal Status of the Visitor to a Property?

You may believe that a property owner owes anyone who enters their property a duty of care. This is not quite true.

There are three categories for individuals who enter a property.

  • Invitee: If you entered a shopping mall, you entered the premise for a business purpose. This makes you an invitee or guest. Property owners owe this group of individuals the highest duty of care.
  • Licensee: These individuals enter the property with permission from the property owner but not for a business purpose. This can include inspectors or maintenance workers. While property owners owe a duty of care, it is not the same as an invitee.
  • Trespasser: These individuals are not invited and do not have permission to be on the premises. Therefore they are not owed a duty of care. There are exceptions to this rule, and you will need to discuss these with a Brandon premises liability lawyer.

Can I Recover Compensation?

Victims often feel they will not be unable to obtain compensation for their injuries which is not the case. Depending on the specific factors of your case, a Brandon premises liability lawyer can determine whether you can seek compensation.

Some of the factors we will consider are:

  • If you are legally allowed to be on the premises
  • The cause of your injuries
  • If the property owner had any knowledge of the dangerous condition
  • If the property owner should have known about the dangerous condition

These key factors will be the basis of your claim. When you suffer an injury on a premise, you can help build a strong case. You will need to document the accident to the best of your ability.

Preserve the clothing and shoes you wore in the accident. You will also need to file a report with the property owner. Seek medical care as soon as possible. This will draw a clear connection between the dangerous property condition and your injuries.

How Much Is My Claim Worth?

Determining how much your claim is worth will depend on several factors.

Victims can increase their chances of compensation by documenting:

  • What the hazardous condition was at the time of the accident
  • The names and contact information of any witnesses
  • Comments made by store associates or others regarding previous incidents of this nature
  • If there were any surveillance cameras near the accident

You may recover economic and non-economic damages after an accident on a property and hold property owners responsible for their negligent actions.

How Can We Prove a Brandon Premises Liability Claim?

Premises liability cases are very complex as there are many ways they happen, and various parties can be held liable. Proving liability is essential for these cases.

The key factors you must address to prove a premises liability claim include:

  • A property owner owed you a duty of care
  • The property owner or manager breached their duty of care
  • This breach led to your injury
  • You also suffered damages as a result of the incident

If you have suffered an injury on unsafe premises such as a hospital, school, grocery store, or retail establishment, you may be entitled to compensation.
