Common Premises Liability Injuries

Premises liability claims are when a property owner is the defendant and is held liable for any injuries sustained from their unsafe property. Property owners are typically the defendants because it is their duty of care to ensure their property is hazard-free. If found guilty, they will need to pay for the victim’s losses.

Here are a couple of examples of common premises liability injuries sustained from unsafe properties: 

  • Bone fractures
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Herniated disks
  • Neck injuries
  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Burns
  • Illnesses

Examples of Premises Liability Claims

There are many types of premises liability claims since so many things can go wrong due to an unsafe property. At Shapiro Law Team, we’ve dealt with a variety of cases, and have extensive experience in winning premises liability claims. 

We have handled cases such as: 

Compensation in Premises Liability Claims

Compensation can be different depending on your injury and how it has affected your life. There are two types of damages when considering compensation: economic and non-economic. Economic damages refer to tangible monetary losses, like medical bills and lost wages. Non-economic damages refer to intangible losses, like companionship and affection.  

You may receive monetary compensation for the following as a result of your premises liability claim:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages if your injuries prevent you from working
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Emotional distress resulting from the accident

What Is a Premises Liability Cause of Action?

A cause of action refers to bringing a claim for damages against someone. This “someone,” also known as a defendant, is typically the property owner because it is their legal duty to ensure their property is safe and free of any hazards. 

How to Make a Premises Liability Claim

The first step in making a premises liability claim is working with a skilled attorney. An attorney can help you navigate the legal complexities of a case like this one. There are a lot of moving parts to premises liability claims: who pays out the compensation for losses? How do you work with insurance? Do you accept the settlement, or do you move on to a lawsuit? 

Typically, the property owner’s insurance company pays for any compensation or losses to the personal injury victim. It could be either renter’s insurance, homeowner’s insurance, or commercial/business insurance depending on the type of property you have sustained an injury on. 

After, the insurer typically offers you a settlement for your claim. Insurance companies are notorious for wanting to lowball people when offering financial compensation. For this reason, working with an attorney is extremely important. They can help you know when to accept a settlement offer and can explain the full extent of your injuries to the opposing party so you can be sure you’ll get the right amount of money for a claim. 

You also have the right to file a lawsuit. If you choose to go this route, you need to have proof of injuries, losses, and evidence of how your injury came to be. You also don’t have forever to file a civil lawsuit. There is a statute of limitations in place, which means you have a certain number of years after your injury occurred to file.
