Lawyers Fighting For You
Sometimes, people injured at someone else’s home or at a well-known business do not want to “sue” a friend, family member or trusted business owner. However, it is important to know that property owners nearly always carry liability insurance. You may require extensive medical care after a fall injury or an electric shock injury. You may miss work and lose out on income. You may be dealing with pain and suffering, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Premises liability is an area of the law that offers recourse to people injured on dangerous premises. Talk to a lawyer to discuss your injuries and the circumstances behind the accident, as well as how to pursue compensation most effectively.
What if your injury happened on the job? If your employer owns the premises, workers’ compensation may be your only – or your primary – path to recovering compensation. However, your employer may not actually own the property. It may be a leased building or other type of property. Or your employer may own the building, but an outside entity is responsible for upkeep. In this case, there may be a third-party liability claim against the maintenance company.
