WHAT WE DO

Premises Liability cases include a wide range of circumstances. Often referred to as “slip and falls”, in actuality, injury can occur as a result of many different conditions, not merely slipping and falling. Premises liability cases can include situations where any unreasonably dangerous condition results in injury. Unseen and/or hazardous conditions, such as an improperly installed device, shelf, or structure may cause an injury, or a slippery, uneven and/or unsafe surface may cause a person to incur serious injury. All too often, business owners, governmental entities, or their employees, create dangerous conditions which result in serious injury.

It is important to report your injury to an owner, employee or landlord. Ask that store personnel call you an ambulance, and seek prompt medical care. You should be aware that if your injuries are minor, the business place may have no-fault premises liability coverage, sometimes referred to as Med-Pay. This coverage will typically be available to cover medical costs, and it does not matter who is at fault.

Sometimes it can be difficult for the injured person to ascertain who exactly is at fault, because stores, and landlords may use third parties to construct structure and displays, or for maintaining the parking lot, and thus these entities may share in the responsibility for the dangerous condition.

WHAT'S NEXT

STEP

1

If you were injured while at a business such as a grocery store, restaurant, gas station or retail store, be sure to file a report. It is best to make the report at the time of the event if you can. Even if you left the premises and did not have the opportunity to file a report at the time of the event, it is prudent to file a report and ask that they save and retain any video footage. Often corporations have a policy in place to erase video within a short period of time. By filing an accident report, and requesting the owner to save the footage, you may circumvent losing critical evidence.

STEP

2

If your injuries are not significant, sometimes business owners carry no-fault insurance that, even if you are at fault, will cover your treatment costs. This coverage does not compensate pain and suffering, but it is often enough to get your bills paid, and not incur out of pocket costs.

STEP

3

It is prudent for the injured person, that suffers a catastrophic injury, to call and consult with a personal injury attorney. Gathering evidence in a timely fashion in premises liability cases is often a crucial component to successfully recovering just compensation for the injuries. Sometimes the dangerous condition is remediated in a way that the prior condition cannot be readily ascertained for purpose of evidence.

STEP

4

Typically your health care insurance will be first in line to pay for treatment costs, particularly where the business or landowner does not have no-fault coverage for the premises. Be aware that your insurance company will likely have reimbursement rights for the amounts paid. Don’t settle your claim without understanding and accounting for those reimbursement rights of your insurance company.
