Whether you have slipped and fallen on a spill that has been unattended by a hotel manager, or an unleashed dog violently attacked and bit you, you deserve to have full recompense for your suffering.

What Entails Premises Liability

When a welcomed guest suffers an injury on someone else’s property, the controller or owner of that property can be found liable for damages, even if they were not around when the accident happened. This is a legal concept known as premises liability, which states that homeowners, property controllers, store managers, and so forth always have an inherent responsibility to protect their guests from unreasonable harm. If you were hurt on another person’s property, you may need to make a premises liability claim to seek compensation.

Types of accidents associated with premises liability claims include:

  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Insufficient security personnel
  • Falling objects

At the Law Office of Scott B. Brilliant, I can assist you with any of the aforementioned premises liability claims. With 20 years of legal experience and a history of successful case results, you can trust me to empower your claim and pursue nothing but maximized compensation.

Unreasonable Danger Defined

The timeline of a premises liability claim is crucial to how it will play out. Property owners can only be held accountable for injuries that are caused by unreasonable dangers or hazards that should have been addressed before the accident took place. For example, if you slipped on a puddle of water leaking from the sink in the restroom at a restaurant, you could have a solid premises liability claim. The restaurant owner should have hourly inspections of the bathroom and should have known about a leaky sink readily.

On the other hand, if the hazard existed for a brief period of time or in an unexpected location, some of the liability could fall upon the victim. For example, if you were in line at a retail store and slipped in a puddle of soda the shopper standing in front of you just dropped, the store owner would likely not be held accountable. In this scenario, not enough time would have passed between the moment the spill occurred and your fall, and it would be unreasonable to expect the owner to immediately retrieve a mop. However, you could sue the person who dropped the beverage.

Compensation That Is Covered by a Premises Liability Claim

Some victims of a premises liability claim may be tempted to not pursue filing a lawsuit because they think it may be too much of a hassle. It is critical to understand the extensive costs that you will need to cover on your own if you do not file a claim. Long-term medical bills for surgeries, prescriptions, and in-hospital stays are exorbitant nowadays, and this does not even count restorative therapy. You will also have to think about lost wages from the time you had to take off work.

A premises liability claim can help pay for these expensive costs, as well as cover the non-monetary damages you have suffered from someone else’s negligence, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Thank you for all you’ve done on our behalf since our accident.

    “Your kindness and professionalism have made a difficult and time-consuming process relatively easy.”

    - P.S.
  • All your expertise in this matter was done perfectly.

    “The reason for this letter is to say to you thank you very much for all your help in this case.”

    - M.K.

    “Scott was very responsive and kept me updated every step of the way.”
