When you visit someone else’s property (whether that property is a friend’s home, a store, etc.) you should not have to worry about being injured in a slip and fall or other types of avoidable accidents. This is why we have premises liability laws.
The specifics of these laws vary from one state to another. Generally, premises liability laws hold property owners and managers responsible for monitoring their properties for hazards that could result in harm to guests who have a legal right to be on said properties. Owners and managers must also instruct employees and other such individuals to be vigilant about keeping an eye out for these types of hazards.
When a property owner becomes aware of a hazard or dangerous condition, they must either eliminate it in a timely manner or take steps to ensure guests are aware of its presence. It’s possible you have been injured in a Bothell, Washington accident because a property owner neglected this responsibility.
Contact a Bothell premises liability attorney at Russell & Hill, PLLC if so. If you can show that your accident was genuinely the result of someone else’s negligence, you can potentially file a claim to recover financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other such losses and damages associated with your accident. The experts at our Bothell premises liability law firm will review your case, explain your legal options, and provide aggressive representation to optimize your chances of recovering the full amount of compensation you are owed if you decide to hire us.
Premises liability cases come in many forms. They often involve slips and falls. Potential causes of a slip and fall accident include (but are not limited to) the following:
Again, property owners have a duty to ensure they are aware of these conditions. Unfortunately, slip and fall accidents are relatively common because many property owners and managers do not monitor their properties as actively as they should.
In some settings, such as bars and nightclubs, being a responsible property owner also involves making sure that reasonable security measures are in place to prevent wrongdoers from engaging in violent acts that can cause harm to both their targets and bystanders. You may be eligible to recover compensation if you were injured on someone else’s property because they didn’t secure it thoroughly.
Be aware that these are just a few examples of common premises liability cases. If you are not completely certain whether your case provides you with grounds to file a claim or lawsuit, it’s best to review it with a Bothell premises liability lawyer. They can help you better understand if you should pursue compensation.
