Did you know that when an accident or injury occurs to a visitor or tenant living on another person's property the owner may be legally responsible for the injury? If you've suffered an injury and the place that you were hurt was owned by someone else, you may be able to file a claim to recover the costs involved to pay for your medical bills, any lost earnings or other pain, disfigurement, emotional distress or permanent physical disability you have suffered.
The personal injury law firm of Bendall & Mednick has offices in New York and in Atlanta, Georgia. If you have been injured on another's property in either state, we encourage you to call us at 518-631-4139 or 888-324-7261 or email us to schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced lawyer.
Premises liability can include claims such as:
- Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents
- Exposure to toxic or hazardous substances such as lead
- Dog bites or maulings
To win a premises liability claim, the plaintiff must prove that the property owners either failed to maintain the property; created unsafe conditions which caused the injury; knew about the unsafe hazard but didn't alert visitors or tenants to this fact; was not careful concerning unsafe conditions which might attract children; or took actions or neglected conditions that caused damage to a neighboring property. More often than not these cases can be a battle over who knew what about the hazard and when.
