Property owners in Lewisville have a legal duty to take reasonable steps to prevent injuries on their property. When an accident on someone else’s property does occur, it is critical to investigate whether the property owner knew or should have known of the hazard that caused the injury. If you have been injured on another party’s property, you may be entitled to recover financial damages to help pay for your medical expenses and to offset your out-of-pocket expenses and lost wages during your recovery period
Some of the most common types of personal injury cases that are considered premises liability cases include slip, trip, and fall accidents, drownings, structural defects, and biohazards such as lead, mold, and carbon monoxide. When one of these incidents occurs, in many cases the accident victim is hesitant to take legal action, because the incident may have occurred at the home of a friend or family member. Although such a legal case may appear to be awkward, in most cases, the property owner’s insurance policy will cover the cost of paying the victim for his or her injuries, and the property owner will likely pay nothing out of pocket.
If you have been injured in an accident caused by a dangerous property condition in Lewisville, you must be able to prove that a company or an individual is responsible for your accident. Simply getting injured at someone else’s home or business is not enough to obtain compensation – instead, you must be able to prove that negligence caused the accident.
