What is a Premises Liability Injury?

Injury victims can file premise liability claims for injuries that happened on other people’s property due to the property owners’ negligence.. Normally this means the property owners didn’t take reasonable measures to remove dangerous conditions, such as keeping sidewalks free of tripping hazards, or didn’t warn visitors to their properties about dangerous conditions, such as putting out a wet floor sign.

Examples of premises liability injuries include:

  • Slipping on a wet floor
  • Being hit by falling objects
  • Tripping on broken stairs, uneven surfaces, or loose carpeting
  • Injuries resulting from fire safety and building code violations
  • Injuries resulting from lack of or insufficient security

What to Do After a Slip and Fall Injury in Goodlettsville, TN

Our Goodlettsville slip and fall attorneys recommend that you follow these four simple steps if you are injured due to a property owner’s negligence:

  1. Notify the property owner or manager that you’ve been injured on the premises.
  2. Fill out a report or statement with a staff member on duty and take a copy for your records.
  3. Get medical treatment for your injuries as soon as possible.
  4. Contact a slip and fall lawyer at Ponce Law.

We can help you get the compensation you need to cover your accident-related expenses. We’ll investigate your claim, assist with your paperwork, and negotiate with the insurance companies, so you can concentrate on getting better.

Compensation Available for Slip and Fall Victims

After a slip and fall accident, or other type of premises liability injury in Goodlettsville, TN, accident victims may be qualified for several different kinds of damages for the harm caused to them by the property owner’s negligence. These may include:

  • Medical expenses related to the injury
  • Lost wages, if the victim needed to take time off work for treatment or if the injury left the victim unable to work
  • Compensation for the victim’s physical pain and emotional distress

How Long Do I Have to File a Premises Liability Claim in Tennessee?

Injury victims have only one year in which to file a lawsuit after an accident on someone else’s property, per state law. Anyone attempting to file a lawsuit past one year from the date of the injury will have their claim denied.

A year may seem like a long time, but the severity of your injuries may not become apparent until long after the injury first occurred. If your medical bills begin to increase and you decide you need to file for compensation, you cannot afford to miss this deadline.

That’s why we recommend getting your injuries evaluated by a medical professional and contacting a Goodlettsville personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after an accident that results in an injury, no matter how minor the injury may seem.

Legal Help You Can Trust

Premises liability claims often involve negotiations with insurance adjusters. Insurance adjusters are skilled professionals hired to protect insurance company profits.

    Due to a personal injury accident, not my fault, I needed to find a lawyer to help me with my case. I chose Ponce Law due to TV advertising and proximity to my home. Throughout the process they were helpful explaining steps being taken. They were helpful in reducing some of the subrogation expenses which ultimately put more of the settlement in my pocket. Thank you to David Wyatt & Taylor Desmet for their assistance throughout this process.

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
