When Are Property Owners Liable for an Accident?

Property owners may be financially responsible for injuries that befall authorized visitors on their premises. These individuals have a duty to maintain safe conditions on their properties. If a hazard arises, they must respond to it within a reasonable amount of time and take steps to properly warn visitors of danger.

If a property owner breaches this responsibility and a person is injured as a result, the victim could pursue a legal claim against him or her. Below are a few examples of situations where an property owner may be liable for an accident:

  • A bottle of olive oil breaks in a grocery store aisle and employees fail to clean up the spill or place a sign in the area for several hours. A patron slips and falls as a result.
  • A landlord receives multiple requests from tenants to repair a broken porch, which later collapses beneath a visitor.
  • A homeowner knows about but fails to warn visitors of a large, hidden hole in his backyard. During a visit, a friend trips over the hole and breaks her leg. 

What Compensation Is Available in a Premises Liability Claim?

If you were injured on someone else’s property, filing a premises liability claim allows you to recover compensation for any losses that you experienced as a result of the accident. Your attorney from Colburn Law will work closely with you to identify all potential avenues to compensation.

Generally, you are eligible to collect two categories of damages: economic and non-economic. While economic damages involve your financial losses, non-economic damages refer to the physical and emotional pain and suffering that you endured.

  • Past and future medical care
  • Disability accommodations
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Lost wages and loss of future earnings
