How to Tell You Have a Strong Premises Liability Claim
When you’re hurt on someone else’s property, you may have grounds for a strong premises liability claim. Unfortunately, you may not have the tools to determine whether you have a claim. So how do you know?
If you’re unsure about your case, you need answers before you take your claim to court. Reach out for the guidance you need, and check out the signs you have a strong case below.
Eligibility for a Strong Premises Liability Claim
When determining whether you have a viable claim, a good place to start is by gaining a thorough understanding of premises liability law. Successful cases meet the following criteria:
- There was a hazard or condition that the property owner or business manager knew or should have known about
- You were injured due to their negligence
- The property owner or business manager had time to fix this hazard before it caused harm
- The hazard was obvious so that any reasonable person would have been able to see it
If your claim meets these criteria, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. Your lawyer can help you prove you were injured in an accident on someone else’s property and that you’re due compensation.
The Nature of Your Injuries Affect Your Claim
While even minor injuries may be compensated, more severe injuries can lead to more compensation for your injuries.
For example, a dog bite may cause only minor injuries, but it can easily lead to permanent disfiguration and other injuries, too. In the latter cases, you have a chance to receive ample compensation for not only your injuries but also mental anguish, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment.
Evidence for a Strong Premises Liability Claim
Gathering evidence is a vital part of the premises liability claim process. For example, it’s helpful if there are witnesses who saw what happened. If so, we can use their testimony to prove fault and establish the extent of your damages.
If you were the only person at the scene of a slip-and-fall accident, for example, the insurance company may question your account of what happened. Let’s say you tripped on an uneven sidewalk. Someone else may have seen you walk over that area right before your slip-and-fall. The witness could testify that the owners didn’t provide a warning about the hazardous condition and didn’t clean it up.
