The types of damages you could receive for a premises liability claim depend largely on the details of your case. As a victim, you could have experienced many different forms of losses and suffering.
Potentially Recoverable Damages in a Premises Liability Claim
If you can prove another party was liable, it is possible to recover:
We can fight to recover compensation for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life.
You can recover compensation for any medical expenses you incurred due to your injury. This could include emergency transportation and treatment, ongoing care, prescription medications, surgeries, and assistive devices.
You may be entitled to compensation for any wages you lost due to your injury.
Diminished Earning Capacity
We can demand compensation if your injuries will cause you to work fewer hours or retire from the workforce.
Loss of a Loved One
If you lost a loved one due to an injury on another party’s property, we can help you recover compensation for funeral and burial expenses, loss of services and support, lost wages and benefits, and loss of companionship.
Determining Liability for Your Injuries
It is important to prove that the liable party in your case was negligent if you are seeking damages. Some victims choose to hire a lawyer with knowledge of premises liability cases to help them secure justice. The other party could be liable in your case in several different ways.
Negligence, a common cause of liability in premises liability cases, includes any failure to act in a reasonable or safe manner. This might include:
- Failure to remove snow and ice
- Failure to maintain safe walkways, elevators, or stairways
- Poor electrical wiring
- A lack of security
- Fire hazards
There are many ways in which you could have been injured or experienced losses at the hands of another party. If you think that another party was liable in any way in your case, you may be able to recover compensation. A lawyer with our firm will be able to help you understand what damages you can receive for a premises liability claim, as every case is different.
Ways Victims of Premises Liability Cases Suffer Damages
Sometimes the types of compensation you could be eligible for depends on your suffering and loss. There is no question that an accident or incident taking place on someone else’s property can change your life. There are several forms of suffering you could be experiencing in this circumstance, including emotional repercussions, physical trauma, and financial loss.
- Physical injuries: Physical injuries in premises liability cases can be both minor and severe. While even a minor injury can affect your life, more severe injuries could lead to disability or wrongful death of a loved one. If you were injured in any way, you could be entitled to compensation.
- Emotional suffering: If you suffered emotionally from stress, anxiety, or in other ways following your accident, it is possible to recover damages. More serious emotional repercussions from an accident can require many medical visits that can become expensive over time.
- Property loss: Thefts, vehicle accidents, and other types of loss are common in premises liability cases. Another party might have been at fault, in which case you could be compensated for your loss.
- Financial difficulties: Medical bills, property loss, and other factors can contribute to financial difficulties. You do not deserve to be under financial stress because of the negligence of a liable party. Remember that you have options as a victim.
Hiring a lawyer could be beneficial as you weigh your options.
