Accidents on Someone Else’s Property

At Joe Miller Law, Ltd., we understand that many people in Norfolk are unaware that they have legal protections in place for when they are injured on someone else’s property. If the property was dangerous as a result of a property owner or manager’s failure to address safety concerns and someone is injured as a result, then the victim can often file a claim that is legally referred to as a “premises liability” claim. Through such a claim, a property owner may be held financially responsible for the victim’s injuries and any costs that arise as a result of those injuries. Unfortunately, there are many ways in which property owners can cause the undue injuries of tenants or visitors.

9 Common Premises Liability Accidents

Premises liability accidents range greatly in the ways that people can be harmed on others’ properties. Some of the most common types of accidents that result in premises liability lawsuits, however, include:

  • Slip and Fall
  • Dog Bites
  • Elevator and Escalator Injuries
  • Porch Collapse
  • Stair Collapse
  • Fires
  • Lead Paint Poisoning
  • Mercury Poisoning
  • Swimming Pool Injuries

When you have suffered from these or other accidents on another person’s property, you may be experiencing debilitating physical injuries, not to mention emotional trauma and serious financial losses.
