Proving Negligence in Premises Liability Cases

Proving negligence in a premises liability case may be done by determining if a reasonable person would see the risk the property owner’s actions or inaction caused. To prove that a property owner was negligent in a premises liability case, an attorney can help build evidence to prove that the property owner neglected their duty of care to maintain safe premises and to protect people from harm or danger, and you were injured as a direct result of their negligence. If a property owner’s negligence led to your injury, we can help. You may be entitled to financial recovery for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.

Proving Negligence

In many cases involving a personal injury claim with a property owner, the owners’ attorneys or insurance adjusters may try to deny liability for your accidents. They may do so by:

  •   Claiming you were the cause of your injury, not the property owner’s negligence
  •   Claiming your injuries are less severe than they are
  •   Denying that a hazard existed or that there is insufficient evidence

We can assist you with building a robust case with solid evidence to refute these claims and ensure that you receive the best possible outcome. If your case shows a clear connection between your injuries and the property owner’s negligence, you may be able to seek financial recovery for your accident-related expenses. Evidence may include pay stubs, medical expenses, and receipts from personal property that has been damaged. You should not be financially responsible for covering your medical costs and damaged property expenses if your injuries were due to a property designer’s negligence. Homeowners and businesses often carry premises liability insurance coverage. We may seek recovery for your damages through an insurance claim or a lawsuit.

Types of Damages

Every claim is unique, and any financial recovery will depend on the specific circumstances surrounding a case and the type and severity of any injuries. If a property owner behaved in a negligent manner and you or a loved one sustained injuries, you may be eligible for compensatory damages. Compensatory damages aim to compensate an accident injury victim for their suffering. Generally, compensatory damages will consist of general damages and/or special damages.

General Compensatory Damages

General damages, otherwise known as non-economic damages do not have a specific billed dollar amount and are generally calculated by a personal injury attorney or jury. General damages do not focus on a specific medical expense or property damage and focus on the suffering sustained in an injury, such as:

  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium
  • And more

Special Compensatory Damages

Special compensatory damages, otherwise known as economic damages, are damages that can be tied to a specific monetary amount, such as:

Lost Wages

If an accident-related injury has left you unable to work, lost wages refer to the income you would have received from the time of the accident to the date of your settlement if you had not been injured. Lost wages may be calculated using paychecks or tax returns. Additionally, lost wages may include:

  • Tips
  • Overtime
  • Bonuses
  • Perks, such as the use of company-owned vehicles, or gym memberships
  • Sick Days
  • Vacations

Special, or economic, damages are meant to reimburse a victim for all of the money lost due to an accident that caused their injuries, and may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Medical equipment
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Home healthcare expense
  • Property damage
  • And more

Wrongful Death Damages

In the unfortunate event that a loved one is killed due to a dangerous condition on another’s property, a wrongful death claim may be suitable. While no amount of financial compensation may bring back your loved one, recovering damages can help ease the financial strain related to the loss. If a wrongful death has occurred, the immediate families of the decedent may be entitled to damages such as:

  • Mental anguish
  • Funeral and burial expense
  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of benefits
  • Loss of consortium
  • And more

If the death of a loved one was due to the gross negligence of a business or individual, it is possible to seek punitive damages as well. To determine what you could seek, our lawyers will evaluate your case for free. We can assess your injuries and expenses and tell you if you may have a valid claim for recovery.

What To Do If You Have Been Injured On Someone Else’s Property?

Our firm will fight to ensure that your right to just compensation for your injuries is preserved. Through careful investigation and aggressive negotiation, we will advocate for you in the face of any objections from the insurance companies, whether you were injured on commercial or private property. However, you can take steps to preserve your claim’s integrity. When you have been injured while on someone else’s poverty, we advise you to take the following steps:

  •   Ensure that you receive medical attention right away to be evaluated for any injuries
  •   Notify the owner of the property of any injuries that you have sustained
  •   Ask for a copy of the incident report
  •   Obtain the contact information of any witnesses, including their names, addresses, and phone number
  •   Do not make a statement to an insurance company after you have been injured. They may use this against you later.
  •   We advise you to discuss your accident only with your attorney.
  •   Avoid posting about your case on social media sites

Insurance companies will often look for any reason to deny your claim.

Help Negotiating with Insurance Carriers

To quickly resolve matters following an accident, insurance companies will offer you less than you deserve in compensation for your injuries.
