What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is an area of personal injury law that relates to a property owner’s duty of care to individuals who come onto the property. A property owner owes a duty of care to provide safe premises for invitees and guests. In a few cases, that duty of care could extend to trespassers, especially young children who are “enticed” by something on the property.
If a property owner breaches the duty of care, the property owner could be liable for damages, including:
- Cost of Medical Treatment and Personal Care
- Physical Pain and Suffering
- Disfigurement, Impairments, and Disabilities
- Loss of Income, Benefits, and Wages
- Emotional Distress and Mental Anguish
- Loss of Quality of Life and Enjoyment of Life
- Other Out-of-Pocket Expenses and Financial Losses
Our Nampa premises liability lawyers conduct a thorough investigation to determine the cause of your accident. We gather evidence and identify all parties who might be liable for your injuries and damages. Our legal team documents your damages to maximize the compensation you may receive for your premises liability claim.
What Is Covered by Premises Liability?
Premises liability laws apply to private, commercial, and government-owned properties. You can sue your neighbor for injuries that occur on his or her property, just like you can sue a grocery store or restaurant for injuries caused by a slip and fall accident. If you are injured while in a courthouse, you might have a premises liability claim against the government entity that operates the courthouse.
While slip and fall accidents are some of the most common reasons for filing a premises liability claim, there are other causes of injury on another person’s property. Common situations that can result in a premises liability claim include:
- Elevator and Escalator Accidents
- Swimming Pool Accidents
- Inadequate Security or Lighting
- Bed Bugs
- Hazardous and Toxic Chemicals
- Electrical Accidents
- Falling Objects
- Construction Site Negligence
- Playground Accidents
- Violations of the Health Code or Building Code
- Broken Railings, Stairs, and Flooring
- Failing to Warn of Hazards and Dangers
Proving negligence for an accident on another party’s property can be challenging. Our Nampa premises liability lawyers have extensive experience handling these types of personal injury claims. They understand the laws related to premises liability, and they know how to win.
Why Do You Need to Hire a Lawyer in Idaho?
It can be challenging to prove that a property owner knew or should have known about a dangerous condition and did nothing to prevent an accident or injury from occurring. The property owner may have corrected the hazard before you have a chance to file a claim. It can also be difficult to prove that the condition of the property was the direct cause of your injuries and damages.
Furthermore, the deadline to file a premises liability claim is restricted by state law, so you cannot wait too long to file your claim. Also, if you were partially to blame for the cause of the accident, the property owner may claim that you are not entitled to full compensation under Idaho’s comparative negligence laws.
Our Nampa premises liability lawyers understand all of these challenges. When you hire our law firm to handle your claim, you do not need to worry about understanding the law, hiring experts, monitoring deadlines, or investigating the claim. We take care of that for you. The only thing you need to focus on is healing from your injuries. We take care of the rest.
