What Is a Premises Liability Claim?
Whenever you are on another person’s property, they owe you a duty of care. The property owner must act as a reasonable property owner would under the circumstances.
Depending on the reasons why you were on the property owner’s premises, here are some of the things that a property owner must do to protect you from danger:
- Inspect their own property discover and fix dangerous conditions
- Avoid creating their own dangerous conditions on their property that may injure visitors to the property
- Warn visitors of any dangers that property owners know or should know about
- Take action to keep visitors when they learn of a potential for danger
Sometimes accidents do happen, and the law recognizes that not everything that goes wrong is the legal responsibility of the property owner. The key to premises liability cases is to prove that the person in control of the property acted unreasonably, either by creating the dangerous condition themselves, or failing to remedy a dangerous condition that they knew or should have known about.
Examples of Premises Liability Cases
Premises liability accidents in Greenville can happen in different ways. Here are some examples of types of legal cases that can result when a person is injured on someone else’s property:
- Slip and fall cases
- Trip and fall cases
- Dog bite injuries
- Negligent security
- Deck collapses
- Construction site accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Hotel room injuries
If you are injured on somebody else’s property as a result of one of these types of cases, then you have the legal right to sue the owner of the property. If the owner leased out the property where you suffered an injury, then you may file a lawsuit against whoever controlled the property at the time of your injury.

What’s the Value of a Premises Liability Claim?
It is crucial that a person understands the value of their case before they file a premises liability claim or lawsuit. The responsible party has a legal obligation to pay all of they injured person’s damages, whether they are economic damages that come directly out of the injured person’s pocket, or non-economic damages that compensate an injured person for the pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and mental anguish that results from the traumatic experience.
If you have been injured on another person’s property, an experienced premises liability attorney can work with you to come up with a reasonable value for your case.
Your premises liability damages will include the following:
- All of the medical costs associated with your injury
- The lost income that you could have earned had you been able to work uninterrupted
- Payment for the physical pain and mental anguish that you have suffered because of your injury
- Loss of consortium damages for your spouse
- Permanent scarring and disability
Injured people must fight for every dollar they get from the insurance company because insurance companies will not willingly give people the money they deserve.
The Premises Liability Case Process
While you may associate a personal injury with a jury trial in a courtroom, that is not always required to resolve these cases fairly. Our firm will help you determine the best legal strategy for your case.
We will recommend one of two options for your premises liability case:
- File a claim with the responsible party’s insurance company, or, if the case cannot be settled fairly without litigation,
- File a lawsuit against the responsible party in court.
Many premises liability cases will settle before they ever see the inside of a courtroom. While the insurance companies are always difficult, they also know when people have a viable legal claim. Insurance companies often do not want deserving cases in front of a jury, so they will settle viable claims after what can be a long negotiation.
If your case cannot be resolved out of court, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial. We will not let insurance companies get away with mistreating our clients.
