“Premises liability” refers to a body of laws that hold property owners liable for injuries occurring to other people on their premises. If you were injured while on someone else’s property, the source of compensation for your injuries and losses may come from the property owner’s resources, including property insurance.
There Is No Shame in Filing an Injury Claim After a Slip-and-Fall Accident
When the property owner is a friend, family member or business associate, an accident victim may hesitate to file a claim, not wanting to “sue” a valued relative, friend or colleague. However, it is important to keep in mind the fact that property insurance is designed to serve as a safety net. Property insurance may provide the help that you need after an accident on someone else’s property.
Was the Property Owner Negligent?
Premises liability may exist even if a property owner was not negligent. However, when there is negligence, the path to resolution of a legal claim may be more straightforward.
