When you are injured on the property of another, the owner of the property may be legally responsible for your injuries, if the injury is due to the owner's negligence or the negligence of the owner's employees. If you have suffered an injury of this type, you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit for your injuries and recover money for your medical expenses, wage loss, pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, and lost enjoyment of life.
Injuries on properties can include those from:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog bites or maulings
Generally, the injured party must prove that the property owners either failed to maintain the property or created unsafe conditions which caused the injury, knew about the unsafe hazard but didn't alert visitors or tenants to this fact, was not careful concerning unsafe conditions which might attract children, or took actions or neglected conditions that caused damage to a neighboring property.
