A Jonesboro premises liability attorney may help file a premises liability claim if you have recently been injured on someone else’s property – at work, a rented home, a store or any number of other places. The term “premises liability” may seem unnecessarily convoluted, but it’s really quite a simple idea and understanding it could prove helpful to your case.
The basic idea behind a premises liability claim is this: if you were injured on someone else’s property because the property owner or manager was negligent and failed to maintain a basic standard of safety on their property, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries. Simple enough, right?
However, there are different types of premises, different injuries and different ways owners may be liable. Some victims may not be sure if their injury is one that warrants a claim. Start by answering these two questions: (1) on what kind of property were you injured? (2) Could the owner have foreseen or prevented your injury? If the answer to the second question is yes, then you have a claim.
The following is a list of the most common conditions that could cause injuries that could lead to a premises liability claim:
- slip and fall injuries from slippery or uneven flooring;
- improperly restrained animals, leading to animal attacks;
- exposure to gas or toxic fumes;
- faulty or dangerous machinery, including factory machines and carnival rides;
- lack of proper security, leading to assault; and
- lack proper pool safety standards, leading to accidental drowning.
If you have been injured under any of these circumstances, contact a Jonesboro premises liability attorney and get started on your claim. It is important to remember that just because you were injured on someone else’s property, that person may not be immediately liable. The specific conditions that may make a property owner liable are listed on the next page.
