COULD THE PREMISES BE LIABLE?
Everyone is proud of their homes and spaces especially when they have gone all out to make them exceptional. In order to achieve the best look and feel for your house, ongoing home improvement is a must. Unfortunately, at every point of the process, there may be a safety hazard lurking around the property which could open the owner up to a premises liability. When visiting such a property it is important to look out for such hazards.
So you have done your part and been super careful around the premises but the property owner has not been diligent on their part. When you end up with an injury on another person’s property the first and best thing you should do is to contact a premises liability lawyer.
WHY YOU NEED A PREMISES LIABILITY ATTORNEY
At Auxilium Car Accident Law Phoenix, we aim to seek justice and compensation for the injured by ensuring that the negligent land occupier is held accountable. Legally any owner or occupier of land who knowingly or negligently creates a danger that injures someone else on their premises is answerable for their disregard and the state of the injured person. The law requires property owners to fix any hazards on their property or inform anyone visiting of the existing danger. This liability applies to both residential and commercial properties. Our firm consistently takes on premises negligence and inadequacies that result in injuries.
TYPES OF GUEST WITH A LIABILITY CLAIM
This applies to family, friends, or relatives of the property owner or occupier. The property owner is only liable for an injury that comes from a hazard that they knew about, unlike business invitees who are covered for everything.
This applies to unauthorized individuals who enter a property without permission. The property owner has no obligation towards such an individual because they did not know that they would be on the premises
This applies to you if you are on the premises for purposes of business. You could be conducting business with the property owner or another party on the premises. As a business invitee you have permission to be on the premises so you are owed utmost care and safety. The landowner is liable for ANY injury that occurs to the business invitee.
Once you approach us to take up your case we will ensure that all the pertinent processes are covered so that we can properly represent you. We begin by investigating the accident and the accident scene. Our investigators aim to uncover the circumstances around the accident and ascertain your part and the property owner’s role in the accident. Sometimes it is important to find out who had control over the property at the time of the accident: the property owner or a third party. It is also imperative to determine whether there was pure negligence or if there was a failure to act with a valid reason.
SLIP & FALL IS PREVENTABLE
In our investigation, we drive our process so that we can gather evidence before it loses value. As time passes the memory of witnesses starts to become fuzzy and sometimes work continues on the scene of the accident effectively tampering with the evidence. We send out a notice immediately before we begin the case which ensures that the property remains undisturbed providing us with all the vital evidence we need for the claim.
