Who is liable if I was injured on someone else’s property?

Obtaining an injury on another person’s property can be potentially devastating. You may find yourself with mounting medical bills from surgeries or rehabilitation, time out of work, and the inability to go through your daily life in the way that you once could. If you can determine who was responsible for your injuries and that they were negligent in maintaining the safety of their property, you may be able to bring a successful property liability case and recover compensation for your injuries.

There are two types of loss when you are injured in an accident. The first type is known as an economic loss, which consists of the medical bills, the cost of rehabilitation or physical therapy, the lost wages because you couldn’t work, etc. They’re simply anything related to the accident that caused you to spend money. The other type of loss is a non-economic loss. Non-economic losses are damages that you recover for the physical pain and suffering that you experienced because of your injuries. Another example of a non-economic loss is that you can no longer do the things you once enjoyed because of your injuries. Not being able to perform your life as you once could can be detrimental to someone who once had a very active lifestyle.

One of the biggest factors in determining premises liability is finding evidence that proves that the dangerous conditions existed on the property. If you are injured on someone else’s property, you should try to take pictures of the conditions that caused your accident before leaving the property. This is important because the dangerous conditions may no longer be there if you return to the property at a later date. The burden of proof can be difficult but it is not an impossible feat.
