The CDC reports that emergency rooms see over 30 million visits each year for unintentional accident injuries. A large number of these injuries occur outside of the home. Did you know that if you have been injured on someone else’s property, such as another person’s home or place of business, the property owner may be liable for your injuries if they were caused by an unsafe condition? Premises liability cases are often covered by the property owner’s insurance policy.
Our Wheeling premises liability attorneys at Shendervich, Shenderovich & Fishman see a lot of premises liability cases in our office and we have listed some of the most frequent injury causes and contributing factors below.
Liability lies with a landowner, homeowner, property manager, landlord, or municipality. We repeatedly see injuries sustained by visitors at people’s homes, schools, commercial properties, and work. Special notices and procedures may be required when the defendant is an employer or a government entity, so it is important to contact a premises liability attorney as soon as possible to be sure that you are in compliance with any policies and requirements.
As mentioned above, when you are dealing with a premises liability claim, there is a good chance you will be dealing with an insurance company. Our Wheeling premises liability attorneys regularly negotiate with insurance companies and will not advise you to settle with them for less than what we believe your claim is worth. If you have been injured due to a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, our experts at Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman will aggressively advocate for the recovery you deserve.
