Columbia Premises Liability Lawyer

Suing the Property Owner for Your Accident

Under certain circumstances, it is possible to file a personal injury claim against the owner of the property where your accident took place. This is known as a "premises liability" claim, and it is based on the idea that the property owner knew, or reasonably should have known, about the conditions which caused the accident yet failed to take precautions to prevent it from occurring. For an initial consultation to learn whether you have grounds for a premises liability claim, contact a Columbia injury attorney from Masella Law Firm, P.A. today. We will give you an unbiased evaluation of your case, advising you of your legal options and how much your claim could be worth in financial compensation.

Slip and Fall and Other Types of Premises Liability Claims

Perhaps the most well-known example of an accident which gives rise to a premises liability claim is a slip and fall accident. If it can be proven that the fall was not the fault of the accident victim, but was caused by conditions such as a wet floor, a sidewalk crack, a broken stair step or a poorly lit or cluttered walkway, the individual is most likely entitled to claim monetary damages for medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. It is necessary to establish that the property owner was aware of the hazard which caused the action and did have an opportunity to remedy the situation but failed to do so.

Other common examples of premises liability claims include drowning accidents in swimming pools without fencing and a self-latching gate to keep unsupervised children out, dog bites on rental properties when the landlord has failed to evict the owner of a vicious or aggressive dog, and even cases of assault or rape on properties without reasonable security measures in place to protect tenants or hotel guests. There are many possible scenarios for a premises liability claim, and we are ready to take on even the most challenging case.
