WERE YOU HURT ON SOMEONE ELSE’S PROPERTY?
Chad Barr Law Can Help
The idea of Premises Liability is one of the bedrocks of Personal Injury Law. The idea that the owner or occupier of a property is liable for what happens on that property is the foundational basis for injury law.
You’ve likely heard Premises Liability Law referred to as “Slip and Fall” cases. While slip and fall cases are usually premises liability cases, they’re really only a small part. Other types include:
- Stairway Accidents
- Swimming Pool Accidents
- Porch and Balcony Defects
- Elevator Accidents
- Falling Merchandise
- Fire and Smoke Injuries
- Negligent Security
- Building Collapse
- Toxic Chemicals
- Code Violations
- Unmarked Hazardous Conditions
Do You Have a Premises Liability Case?
Just because you were injured on someone else’s property doesn’t mean you have a good case. If you entered the property without the owner’s knowledge or consent you may not have a case. Trespassing is a crime, and those injured in the commission of a crime may not have the ability to recover from an injury.
If you were invited onto the property, even indirectly, then you should have a reasonable expectation of safety. That means that the owner of the property is responsible to make sure that the property is safe and any dangerous conditions are dealt with or labeled so you know about them and can avoid them.
Compensation May Be Available if You Were Injured
If a property owner doesn’t maintain or make safe the conditions of their property then they may be found responsible for the injuries. In that case, they would also be responsible for the cost of any recovery.
Those costs typically include:
- Lost Wages
- Physical Therapy Costs
- Medical Expenses
What to do if You’re Injured on Someone Else’s Property?
If you’re injured while on another person or company’s property, then you need to make sure you’re health is your top priority. For your health and well-being, you need to make sure to you:
- Seek immediate medical attention.
- Follow your physicians’ orders and recommendations including any and all follow-up appointments.
- Document your treatment and keep copies of all bills and medical records.
- Contact an experienced and qualified Amusement Park Injury Lawyer.
Depending on the type of injury it may take several days and even weeks for the symptoms to appear. That is why it is important to seek out medical attention immediately to document the injury and your medical treatment even if you are not immediately experiencing pain or other warnings signs.
Reasons to Hire an Experienced Premises Liability Lawyer
When an Amusement Park is responsible for an injury to one of their guests, they will ask their insurance company to handle the claim. To protect the park’s interest and its reputation they will typically try to shift the blame to the injured person. Rarely will they accept responsibility for what happened.
While their goal will be to dismiss the injury and any legal proceedings that follow, the job of your Amusement Park Injury Attorney is to make sure the park is held responsible for its actions. That’s why it is important to contact and hire a lawyer experienced in dealing with the theme parks, their insurance companies, and the lawyers they hire.
