What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability law covers a business or property owner’s legal duty of care to keep an environment safe and take reasonable steps to prevent injuries and accidents. This duty extends to customers and members of the public who use their property, whether indoors or outdoors.

Most premises liability cases involve negligence, where a property has not been responsibly maintained. Business owners must stay within the boundaries of state and federal regulations while taking steps to protect the safety of customers. Our premises liability lawyers represent you when they fail in that duty.

Where Do Premises Liability Accidents Occur in Crown Point, NWI?

Premises liability accidents include a range of incidents caused by unsafe conditions on a property. They can occur in diverse settings, often in locations containing hazards that property owners have failed to address. Common sites for such accidents include:

  • Residential Properties: Injuries may result from structural defects, poor lighting, or unsecured hazards.
  • Commercial Establishments: Retail stores, malls, restaurants, and hotels are frequent sites of injuries, often due to wet floors or obstructed walkways.
  • Public Spaces: Parks, sidewalks, swimming pools, and public buildings can pose risks due to poor maintenance or environmental hazards.
  • Workplaces: Offices, factories, and construction sites might have safety lapses leading to accidents.
  • Educational Institutions: Schools and universities can be liable for accidents due to inadequate maintenance or supervision.

The laws involving premises liability claims vary depending on the location of the accident. A skilled lawyer can draw on their experience with similar cases to streamline the process of pursuing compensation.

Who Might Be Liable in Premises Liability Claims?

In a premises liability case, we must determine who had control over the condition or activity that caused the injury. These parties may be:

  • Property Owners: The owner is typically the primary liable party, especially if they failed to maintain the property or did not address known hazards.
  • Business Operators: If the injury occurred in a commercial setting like a store or restaurant, the business operator might be liable, particularly if the negligence was related to the operation of the business.
  • Property Managers or Maintenance Companies: These entities could be liable if the injury resulted from their failure to properly maintain the property or fix known issues.
  • Tenants or Renters: In cases where a rental property is involved, the tenant might be liable if they caused the hazard or if the lease specifies their responsibility for certain types of maintenance.
  • Contractors and Subcontractors: During construction or renovation, contractors or subcontractors might be liable for injuries caused by their work, especially if it involved negligence or noncompliance with safety standards.
  • Government Entities: If the injury occurred on public property, such as a sidewalk or public park, a local government or municipal agency might be liable, although there are often special rules and limitations for suing government entities.
  • Homeowners Associations (HOAs): In communities governed by an HOA, the association might be liable for accidents in common areas or where the HOA is responsible for maintenance.

We’ll sort through the complex circumstances surrounding your injury to determine which party to pursue in your claim. In some cases, more than one party might be held liable for an injury.

Who Might Be Liable in Premises Liability Claims?

Damages You May Be Entitled to in a Premises Liability Claim

In a premises liability claim, the damages you may be entitled to fall into several categories, each designed to compensate for different aspects of your loss and suffering due to the injury. These can include:

  • Medical Expenses: This covers the cost of medical treatment related to the injury, including hospital bills, medication, physical therapy, and any future medical care required.
  • Lost Wages and Earning Capacity: We’ll pursue compensation for lost income if the injury prevents you from working. This also includes potential future earnings lost due to the injury's long-term effects.
  • Pain and Suffering: You deserve compensation for the physical pain and emotional distress caused by the injury, such as chronic pain, mental anguish, or loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Property Damage: If any personal property was damaged due to the incident (such as a broken watch or ruined clothing), this compensation covers the cost of repair or replacement.
  • Loss of Consortium: If the injury affects the relationship between the injured person and their spouse or partner, damages for loss of consortium may be awarded.
  • Rehabilitation Costs: Some claimants require physical or occupational therapy and other forms of rehabilitation due to the injury.
  • Punitive Damages: In cases where the defendant’s conduct was particularly egregious or reckless, punitive damages might be awarded as a way to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar conduct.
  • Wrongful Death: In the most tragic cases, the premises liability incident results in death. The victim’s family might be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and emotional suffering.

Generally, more severe and longer-lasting injuries result in higher settlements and awards. We’ll work with you to determine a likely value for your claim and relentlessly pursue the full amount you deserve.

What can I be financially compensated for after a premises liability accident?

The amount depends entirely on the circumstances surrounding your accident. Stracci Law Group will determine the severity of your accident and estimate its likely value. If we take on your case, we will vigorously pursue the full amount you deserve.

Are you liable for accidents on your property?

Business and property owners will generally be liable for accidents that occur because of their negligence. If a business or property owner fails to stay within state and federal regulations and doesn’t take steps to reasonably protect people on their property, they could be required to pay for medical bills and provide other compensation in the event that someone is hurt.

How long after a slip and fall can you sue in Indiana?

Indiana law states that you have two years from the date of an injury to file a lawsuit. While there are some exceptions, this time limit applies to most cases.

Can you sue someone if you fall on their property?

Possibly — if the fall was caused by negligence or if the property owner did not properly comply with state and federal regulations. You can discuss the details of the accident with a premises liability lawyer to determine whether a lawsuit is likely to succeed.
