I was injured on someone else’s property, is there anything I can do to have the property owner cover my medical expenses and more?
Accidents and personal injuries often occur on someone else’s property, even a stranger’s. You may have been a guest at a party, or you may be a mailman walking through a property delivering mail, a utility worker or service technician, or you may have been simply walking across the property.
Morici, Figlioli and Associates (MFA LAW) has prepared this short article to help you understand when you might have a case for a personal injury lawsuit.
Personal injury lawsuits for injuries sustained on private property - a property must be clear of debris, for example, keeping walkways and steps in good condition and free of snow, ice, hazards and other dangers. This includes pets, or exotic animals living on the property. If the property owner knows his pets are vicious and exposes them to others, the owner is acting negligently and/or possibly criminally.
Personal injuries occurring on someone else’s property â these include trip and fall, and slip and fall injuries; animal bites requiring medical attention; unsafe premises and unsafe conditions in a home or elsewhere on the property; illegal or negligent behavior by the property owner, or guest/stranger.
Providing sufficient evidence of personal injury and negligence â you must have the basis for a personal injury lawsuit, and your injury must be the result of the property owner’s negligence or illegal behavior.
