When an accidental injury happens during a visit to another person’s property, the owner of that property may be liable for that injury. Under law, when you venture onto someone’s property you are owed a certain duty of care. Whether you are an invitee, such as shopping at the supermarket or eating at our favorite eatery, a licensee, someone who is a social guest and there for non commercial reasons, or even a trespasser, the property owner still has a responsibility to ensure that hazards are taken care of.
An uneven sidewalk, a broken railing, even a spill on the floor could lead to serious injuries and even wrongful death and while each person has a duty to watch where they are going, property owners are responsible for needless injuries caused by hazards that are easy to correct. If an owner of a property has failed to maintain the conditions of their premises, created an unsafe condition which caused the injury, or knew about the dangerous premises or unsafe hazard but failed to alert visitors of the defect then he/she may be held liable for your injuries.
If you have been injured in an accident which you believe may be the result negligence or recklessness of another person or company, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost earnings, disfigurement, pain, emotional distress and any permanent disabilities that you may have suffered.
