Negligence and the Burden of Proof
A property owner’s failure to take proper measures to ensure the safety of a building’s users can result in serious and catastrophic injuries. A victim can be subject to years of financial and physical effects that can be overwhelming. Whether you have been hurt on public or private property, we are committed to holding all negligent parties accountable for their actions. In our pursuit of compensation, our firm will comprehensively investigate your matter. In order to successfully bring a premises liability case against a property owner, it is important to prove negligence. Our firm will need to establish that the property owner knew or should have reasonably known about the hazard and did nothing to protect patrons and passersby.
If we are successful, you could be entitled to damages, including lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and compensation for the impact on your future. Doing so is complicated as who the responsible party is can differ. Bringing a personal injury claim is a time-sensitive matter. The statute of limitations provides a window of time a person has to take legal action. For legal action against private citizens, the statute is 3 years. If a municipality is to blame, the plaintiff will have to provide a Notice of Claim within 6 months of the incident. Always consult with an attorney to discuss your claim.
