The key factor of every personal injury case is negligence. When one or more people are negligent in the way they act, or by not acting at all, serious injury can result. One way in which a person can demonstrate negligence is in the upkeep of their property. By failing to maintain property so that it is safe for other individuals, accidents are much more likely to occur. Unfortunately, premises liability accidents are common especially in apartment complexes and in stores. In fact, the National Center for Health Statistics reports that over 31 million Americans suffer from personal injuries every year, with a large part of that statistic stemming from premises liability cases.
If you have been injured due to the negligence of a property owner, you can file a premises liability claim against them in order to obtain compensation. In addition, it is important to seek experienced legal representation right away to ensure you are being covered compensated for your injuries. Only an attorney with experience in premises liability cases can help you gather the necessary evidence to establish liability and recover compensation for the following:
- Medical expenses
- Doctor visits
- Emotional distresses

- Lost wages
- and more
