Typical Injuries We See From a Premises Liability Accident

There are numerous ways to be harmed in these various venues. Some of the most common injuries we see at places like hotels, restaurants, stores and stadiums include:

  • Food poisoning: Establishments that sell food are responsible for ensuring the food is safe to consume for attendees.
  • Burns: Issues with the plumbing in a hotel room or public bathroom can cause scalding water.
  • Slips and falls: Hotels, restaurants, casinos and grocery stores with inadequate signage, cleanup or maintenance can cause slip and falls.
  • Assault: Casinos, hotels and stadiums without proper security increase the likelihood of physical assault.
  • Physical injuries: Amusement park rides, playgrounds and elevators can cause other injuries.
  • Drowning: Hotel and public pools with inadequate safety measures can result in drownings or near-drownings.

Legal Requirements of a Property Owner

Property owners who host guests, attendees and workers on their property have a legal liability for providing a safe space. The owners are responsible for knowing the conditions of their property. Any issue they should reasonably know about and respond to, including those listed above, require disclosure by law.

Posting warnings, giving notifications and fixing the hazards are the property owner’s responsibilities. If they do not respond reasonably to the danger, the property owner could be considered negligent.

As a plaintiff, you must prove that you were permitted to be on the property and that the hazard existed when you became injured. Victims also need to verify the owner reasonably should have known about the danger that caused the injury.

Gaining Compensation From Being Injured on Another’s Property

There are several ways you can recover compensation for injuries on another’s property. Some of the items the negligent party might have to pay for include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Physical and emotional pain
  • Present and future wage loss
  • Wrongful death damages

You can also gain compensation for punitive damages in some cases. Hiring an experienced premises liability attorney lets you receive compensation quickly.
