INJURED ON SOMEONE ELSE’S PROPERTY? GET PERSONALIZED ASSISTANCE WITH YOUR CASE FROM PATRICK S. AGUIRRE
While it would be impossible to make any property completely accident-proof, property owners must keep their premises reasonably safe, so visitors do not suffer accidental injuries. When a property owner fails in this duty and an individual suffers an injury, the injured party may be able to file a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner to recover damages.
There are three main types of premises liability claims: slip and fall accidents, trip and fall accidents, and negligent security claims.
Slip and fall accidents occur when an individual slips on a slippery or wet surface and suffers an injury. Common injuries suffered in slip and fall accidents include fractures, concussions, and lacerations.
Trip and fall accidents occur when an individual trips over an object in their path and suffers an injury. Common injuries in trip and fall accidents include fractures, concussions, and lacerations.
Negligent security claims occur when an individual is attacked or assaulted on a property due to the owner’s failure to provide adequate security. Common injuries in negligent security cases include bruises, broken bones, and concussions.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall, trip and fall, or negligent security accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Contact an experienced premises liability lawyer today to discuss your case.

HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE A CASE
The most effective way to determine if you have a compensation case is to consult a knowledgeable premise accident injury attorney. While many people try to negotiate with the property owner or their insurance company on their own, this is rarely successful. To have a hope of recovering damages, you will likely need an attorney who knows how to deal with these types of cases.
There are a few key questions you can ask yourself to determine if you may have a case:
- Did the property owner know or should have known about the dangerous condition on their property?
- Did the property owner fail to remedy the dangerous condition or warn visitors of the danger?
- Were you injured due to the dangerous condition on the property?
If you can answer yes to all three of these questions, then you may have a case against the property owner.
You should also consider whether the property owner acted recklessly or with intentional disregard for your safety. If so, you may be able to recover punitive damages in addition to any other compensation.

- A hazard existed on the property such that a reasonably careful person would not have been able to foresee the danger or avoid injury
- The property owner was negligent in that they created the hazard, knew of the hazard, or should have known of it through a reasonable inspection of the property
- The hazard caused you to suffer an accident
- Your accident resulted in injury and damages

Frequently Asked Questions
What were the circumstances leading up to the accident?
Many possible circumstances could lead to a premise accident. Some common examples include:
- Poorly maintained or hazardously designed premises
- Unsafe or dangerous conditions on the premises
- Lack of proper safety equipment or signage
- Failure to warn of potential dangers on the premises
- negligent or reckless behavior by employees or other individuals on the premises.
Suppose you have been injured in a premise accident. In that case, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your legal options and determine whether you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
How severe were the injuries?
Injuries from premise accidents can range from mild to severe. Some common injuries include cuts, bruises, scrapes, broken bones, concussions, and even death. The severity of the injury depends on many factors, such as the type of accident, how it happened, and whether safety precautions were taken. For example, a fall down a flight of stairs is more likely to result in a serious injury than a slip on a wet floor. Wearing proper safety gear, such as a helmet or protective clothing, can help reduce the severity of injuries sustained in an accident.
What damage was done?
In addition to injuries, premise accidents can also cause property damage. This may include damage to the premises, such as a broken window or door, or damage to personal property, such as a car parked on the premises. If the negligence of the premises owner caused the property damage, the victim may be able to recover compensation for the cost of repairs or replacement.
How could the accident have been prevented?
There are several ways that the accident could have been prevented, including:
- Ensuring that all employees receive proper training on how to use machinery safely
- Introducing more safety measures to protect workers from potential injuries
- Improving communication between management and employees to ensure that everyone is aware of potential hazards
- Conducting regular safety audits to identify and address any potential risks
- Providing employees with the proper safety gear to protect them from harm.
If even one of these measures had been in place, the accident could have been prevented. All businesses need to take steps to ensure the safety of their employees, as accidents can not only cause injuries and loss of life but can also lead to costly lawsuits and damage the company’s reputation.
What will be done to hold the responsible party accountable?
There are a few different ways to handle premise accidents. The first thing that needs to be done is to gather evidence. This can be in photos, videos, or eyewitness accounts. Once you have this evidence, you must decide what course of action to take. You may choose to file a lawsuit, or you may decide to negotiate a settlement with the responsible party. In either case, it is important to have a strong legal team on your side to help you through the process.
What can be done to improve safety at the premises?
