What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability refers to the liability of property owners and occupants (non-owner resident) for injuries caused on their property.
Common types of accidents in premises liability cases include:
There are just a few of the types of issues that can arise because of an unsafe property. These accidents have the potential to lead to very serious injuries, such as a broken spinal cord, head injury, as well as scars and disfigurement. As a result, you may face extensive medical expenses and the necessity for lifestyle modifications and an inability to work.
What to Do if You Have Suffered a Serious Personal Injury
You may feel frustrated, confused and alone after suffering an injury on someone else’s property. The property owner or occupant is probably doing little in the way of helping you cope with your injury, and their attorneys may even be pressuring you to accept a settlement or to say that the accident was your fault. When you are injured in this type of accident, you need an experienced premises liability lawyer at your side, to protect your rights and fight for what is best for you.
A property owner or occupant has a duty to keep the premises maintained and reasonably safe.
This area of law becomes complex as it involves many factors, such as:
- What was your purpose in visiting the property?
- What was your status legally as a visitor?
- Could an injury have been predicted?
- Was the property not properly cared for?
Our Greenville premises liability attorneys can address all of these issues and others. Premises liability is influenced by state laws, and you need a lawyer with extensive knowledge of these laws in North Carolina.
