Who might be liable for my injuries if I was injured on someone else's property?
If the reasonable standards to protect visitors – spelled out by local law – were not followed, and an injury results, the person or entity that was in charge of the property may be held liable. This could be the owner, the property manager, or some other party, depending on the circumstances of the case.
What kinds of damages are recoverable?
The extent of a plaintiff's recovery depends on the facts of his or her case. In general, however, the following damages may be recoverable:
- Medical bills and expenses incurred as a result of the incident
- Income that is lost during the plaintiff's physical recovery
- Compensation for pain and suffering as a result of the incident
Always – and without delay. Your injuries might be more severe than you think. See a doctor immediately to evaluate them. Do not wait.
