What Kind of Cases Make for Valid Claims?
When a person is using someone else’s property in the intended fashion, and ends up injured, it may result in a lawsuit. If, for example, a slippery surface on the floor of a store causes a fall and a back injury or head injury, the injured person may be able to file a lawsuit. The elderly are particularly vulnerable to slip and fall injuries, and organizations catering to seniors must take extra precautions.
Some slip and fall injuries are not covered by premises liability laws. Work related injuries, for example, are covered by workers’ compensation. And the laws are complex when it comes to icy surfaces or uneven sidewalks. If you are unsure whether you have a case, it is best to just ask a knowledgeable attorney.
What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is the legal term for the obligations property owners have to compensate people who have suffered injuries because of negligent maintenance of their property. Many premises liability cases involve slip and fall injuries, but it may involve other situations. To learn more about the laws surrounding slip and fall injuries, visit our slip and fall page .
