How Do I Know if My Claim Is Valid?

Claims against negligent property owners are referred to as premises liability claims. They can be filed when there is reason to believe that the property owner's negligence caused harm to a visitor to the property. Often, negligence takes the form of failure to address a hazardous condition on the property.

It is important to note that, in order for a claim to be effective, there must be evidence that the property owner had the opportunity to address the hazard and failed to do so. Proof of the hazard alone may not be sufficient. For example, if a freezer suddenly breaks down and a customer slips on the liquid that has leaked out the victim has less of a chance at a successful claim than if the freezer had been broken down for weeks and the property owner failed to repair it.

Slip & Fall Accident Claims

Slip-and-fall accidents are among the most common premises liability claims. They may involve situations such as when visitors to stores slip on leaks, spills, or other hazards and suffer injury.
