Frequently Asked Questions About Premises Liability Claims
At Adamson Ahdoot LLP, we take pride in handling complex cases, including premises liability cases. What is premises liability? Premises liability is an area of law that allows victims injured on another person’s property the ability to collect compensation from the person or entity responsible. Slip and fall accidents, animal attacks, assaults, and other injury cases stemming from unsafe or unkept property usually all fall under premises liability.
I slipped and fell at my local grocery store, can I file a premises liability lawsuit?
You may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligent property owner for injury damages depending on the circumstances surrounding the incident. For example: if you slipped on a soda another customer spilled moments earlier, the store may not be liable for your injury. However, if the store knew a customer had spilled a soda prior to you slipping and did nothing to remove the potential danger, you may have a case.
If you believe your slip and fall injury was caused by the negligent actions of a property owner or manager, we urge you to contact one of our Los Angeles premises liability attorneys for a free case review. Using our vast resources, we can determine if moving forward with a lawsuit is within your best interest.
I received a call from the property owner’s insurance agency, should I accept their settlement offer?
No. If you received a call from the negligent party’s insurance agency, it’s imperative you don’t accept any settlement offers or give them any information about the incident or your injury. You have to remember: the job of the insurance adjustor is to save the insurance company money. They will use unsavory tactics to get out of paying you what you deserve, so it’s best you don’t speak to anyone or accept any settlement until you talk to our law firm. Please keep in mind: If you accept a settlement check, it may prevent you from being able to collect full and fair compensation.
What types of damages can I collect in a premises liability case?
Every year in the U.S., millions of people are injured in premises liability accidents every year, reports the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Although some of these injuries are minor, many result in severe life-altering consequences. Serious injuries often require long-term care and negatively affect a victim’s ability to work and enjoy life as he or she did before the accident occurred.
If you were injured on someone else’s property, you may be able to recover funds for:
- Past, current, and future medical bills
- Prescription and medical device costs
- Lost income
- Permanent disability
- Loss of quality of life
- Mental anguish
- Physical pain
- Other types of damages
