Personal Property Liability Attorneys
Not many people understand that they can be held responsible for a dangerous condition on their property that causes injury to another party. For instance, if you know of a dangerous condition on your property, such as a hole in your yard, you can be responsible for injuries to a person if they are injured by falling in the hole and you do nothing to prevent the accident from occurring. Also, if you own a dog and the dog strays from your premises and attacks and injures someone, your homeowners insurance may cover you for liability.
Many other instances of premises liability exist. People are injured in shopping malls, in parking lots, or by falling merchandise in their local department store. Business owners have a higher standard of care with regard to people on their business premises. They must be careful not to injure their customers.
While the obligations of a business owner and a homeowner are somewhat different, both a business owner and a homeowner should take precautions to protect persons from injuries on their property.
If you are injured on someone's property because they were negligent, you may have a claim for your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. You should seek the assistance of counsel.
