If You Were Hurt on Someone Else’s Property, You Need a Lawyer

Accidents happen—that’s an inescapable fact of life. But not all accidents are created equal in the eyes of the law.

For example, there’s a big difference between an accident where you lose your balance and fall and an accident where you slip on a wet floor and fall. One is difficult to foresee or prevent, while the other could be considered someone else’s fault.

When the second type of accident occurs, we work hard to help those victims get compensation. In Tennessee, property owners owe everyone who legally steps onto the premises some degree of safety and security. This is called premises liability, and it includes both public and private buildings, as well as land.

That means that any injuries you suffered at someone else’s home or business could be considered the property owner’s fault, especially if they were aware of the potential dangers or should have been aware of them, but didn’t take any actions to reduce those threats to safety.

Countless serious injuries occur on properties that go unreported or unchallenged. Victims still suffer severe complications and rack up huge medical bills, but they may not even be aware that they can file claims against the property owners’ insurance policies. That can leave the victims paying out of pocket for medical bills they can’t afford, especially if their injuries put them out of work.

If you or someone you love suffered an injury on someone else’s property, you need compensation, and having a lawyer on your side can help you get it. Contact the Nashville premises liability lawyers at Ponce Law today for a free consultation.
