I Was Injured On Someone’s Property And I Understand This Is Called Premises Liability. Do You Take Those Types Of Cases?
Premises liability cases happen when a person is hurt on the property of another person. Usually this means slip and fall, dog bite, or defective property causing injury. Dettman Law in Louisville, Kentucky has experience handling numerous premises liability cases. Brian Dettman has tried premises liability cases to a jury. He does resolve during pre-litigation if that makes sense for the client. Below is a discussion of premises liability cases.
Proving your Case
In order to win a premises liability case there must be a duty of the land owner. This means that the person who controls or maintains the property must take adequate steps to prevent injury to third persons. This can mean something as simple as sweeping snow off a driveway or something complicated like installing security cameras and lighting at a hotel where there is a history of crime. If a lawyer can prove that the landowner breached their duty by failing to take adequate steps AND you are injured then there is a premises liability case.
Types of Premises Liability Cases at Dettman Law
I have sued gas stations, grocery stores, big box stores, restaurants, shopping centers and basically any place people go on slip and fall cases. I have sued apartment complexes for failing to take care of the property. Additional defendants include bars and security companies. I also work on dog bite cases which fall into premises liability when there is a dangerous dog.
Steps to Take for a Property Damage Case
1) Take photographs at the scene if possible.
