Property injury accidents can happen anywhere: in retail stores, hotels, restaurants and swimming pools, and on private property. These accidents can also look very different depending on the specific circumstances. Some accidents occur when a person slips on spilled liquid in a convenience store. Others happen when merchandise falls off a shelf in a retail shop. There are also swimming pool drowning and dog bites at a neighbor’s house. Regardless of the unique factors in your matter, if you were injured on someone else’s property, you may be able to bring a legal claim for compensation. However, the laws surrounding premises liability cases are very nuanced. Specific evidence is needed to prove that the property owner needlessly endangered you. This can be done by showing the owner knew about the hazard and did nothing to fix it in a timely manner, or that he or she should have known about the hazard. Making the case for this is not easy. That is why it is essential to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
