Falls & Premise Liability

Premises liability law covers any injury sustained by a visitor or tenant on another person’s property. The owner of the property may be held liable if it’s proven they were negligent with their property’s upkeep or maintenance. At Lindstadt Law, we believe no one should fear getting hurt on an individual’s or company’s premises, so we take measures to ensure those who do sustain injuries from a property’s hazardous conditions get the legal counsel and representation they deserve from our premises liability attorneys.

 

What Does a Premises Liability Claim Include?

 

Injuries on properties can include:

 

• Slip and fall accidents

• Dog bites

• Exposure to toxic or hazardous substances such as lead or mold

• Uneven pavement

• Unsecured rugs and mats

• Slippery floors

• Uncleared snow and icy walkways

 

How Do I Win a Premises Liability Case?

 

To demonstrate the property owner’s negligence, your premises liability attorney must prove that the property owner is guilty of one of the following:

 

• Failure to maintain property

• Created unsafe conditions which caused the injury

• Failure to rectify or notify guests of unsafe conditions such as spilled liquids

 

For premises liability to apply, the defendant must actually own said property, and the plaintiff must have been invited onto the property. Traditionally, trespassers are not covered under premises liability law.

 

Seek Representation Quickly

 

In almost all cases, a lawsuit must be filed within a certain amount of time from the date of the accident. If you intend to pursue a claim, you should contact an attorney right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
