Common Causes of Premises Liability Accidents
When you’re on someone else’s property, you shouldn’t have to worry about part of the property being dangerous. Unfortunately, you may have already been injured by a problem on the property, whether that is a maintenance issue or a failure to protect the people on that property.
But what causes premises liability accidents? Below are some of the causes of dangerous property-related injuries:
- Slippery floors
- Loose stairs
- Faulty wiring
- Negligent security
- Dog bites
Who’s Liable for Property-Related Accidents?
Your accident may have been caused by someone else’s carelessness, but when it’s a problem on someone’s property, who’s at fault? You weren’t directly injured by another person, so you may have trouble getting compensated for your injuries.
If you’ve been hurt, you may have grounds to sue the person who owns the property. The property owner is ultimately responsible for the safety of their visitors. If they fail to repair the damage, or if they fail to warn you about the danger, they may be liable in your Tennessee premises liability claim. Talk to your lawyer about the case and who you’re eligible to sue.
Damages You May Be Due for a Tennessee Premises Liability Claim
When you’re hurt on someone’s property, they may be liable for your injuries. That means you’re due compensation that covers all your damages, or the impacts and losses you’ve suffered because of the accident.
Your economic damages may be the first on your mind. The hospital bills and other financial losses may be urgent, and you shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for those expenses. Those costs should be added up and included in your claim.
Non-economic damages are intangible impacts you’ve suffered emotionally and mentally. These damages may cover your pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and mental trauma. These damages can also be difficult to calculate, but your lawyer can help you determine their value.
