What are Premises Accidents?
Premises accidents are accidents that result in injury that occur on someone else’s property. The property could be a public place or a private residence. A variety of things could happen. A person might slip and fall on a wet floor in the supermarket or on a patch of snow and ice on a public sidewalk. They may be injured in an elevator that is faulty or on a ride in an amusement park.
The extent of the owners liability depends on a number of things, and can get complex. Even if property is private, there should be a warning that conditions might be dangerous in order to prevent trespassers from entering and hurting themselves.
Why You Need A Personal Injury Attorney for Premises Accidents
When you get hurt on someone else’s property, your first instinct might be to accuse yourself of being clumsy. Face it, we all are from time to time. But chances are the mishap occurred at least partially because something was out of place, and there was not a sufficient warning for you to watch for it. Attorney Anthony A Ferrante has seen hundreds of cases, and many of the injuries have resulted in major injuries.
Even if you don’t think you are hurt very much initially, sometimes the effects of the injury can come up later on, so it is important to take notes on what happened so that your information is as complete as possible in order to help your case. If your injury is more obvious and more severe, you will likely see medical bills pile up. If you need pain or other types of medications, your trips to the pharmacy will be more expensive. You may miss work and lose wages while you recover, and you may even need to hire help to handle the upkeep of your home. All these things add up, and insurance coverage doesn’t really cover what you will need on its own.
