Premises liability is a term used to describe the legal responsibility that a landowner and occupiers of a property have for injuries and accidents that occur on their property. Premises liability claims can be filed for a variety of reasons. For example, slip and fall and dog bite claims are common. In addition, claims may be filed for injuries that are a result of equipment that is used on the property. Also. Injuries that may be a result of another person’s actions on the property may be the responsibility of a property owner, especially if the owner fails to provide adequate security on the property.
When considering filing a premises liability claim, action should be taken in a timely manner. The first reason why this is important is that you want to protect and preserve vital evidence on the case. Secondly, there may be statutes of limitations that limit the time you have to file a claim after an injury has occurred. If you have reason to believe the negligence of a property owner has contributed to an injury you’ve sustained, then you should speak to the Noble Law Firm.
