Have you been seriously injured on someone else’s premises and are not sure who is to blame? A premises liability case involves someone being injured on the property of another. A typical case is one in which someone slips, trips or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. If you’ve sustained injury, you should enlist help from a premises liability lawyer immediately.

Premises Liability Injuries Typically Include, But Are Not Limited to:
- Broken bones
- Spinal injury
- Head/ neck/ back/ knee/ shoulder/ ankle/ injuries
Determining negligence involves deciding whether the property owner breached the legal standard of care required. Any liability would presumably be based on negligence, since it’s very unlikely that the property owner intentionally caused someone to be injured. Then the issue becomes whether the property owner was in fact negligent, which depends on the circumstances. Generally, for the premises owner to be liable, you must show that they knew or should have none of a hazardous condition on the premises and did not properly warn you and did nothing to remove the condition. As in any injury case, you or someone on your behalf, should immediately take photographs of the accident scene, write down the name and contact information for any witnesses, and seek immediate necessary and reasonable medical treatment.
