What Is Premises Liability? 

Premises liability is the legal responsibility of property owners, managers, or occupiers to ensure the safety of individuals who enter their premises. For example, when you visit a store or restaurant, the property owner has a legal obligation to manage and supervise the grounds in a way that minimizes the risk of unnecessary harm to their patrons. 

If a property owner fails to fulfill this duty and someone is injured as a result, the injured party may be eligible to recover damages in a premises liability lawsuit. Our team can guide you through the legal intricacies of filing a premises liability claim and negotiate effectively on your behalf to maximize its value, allowing you to focus on your recovery.

Premises Liability Laws in Indiana

Under Indiana premises liability laws, property owners are legally bound by certain obligations to keep their property safe. 

Remember, every premises liability case is unique. It’s crucial to consult with a trusted premises liability attorney if you sustained a wrongful injury on someone else’s property or business, as they can ensure you have a thorough understanding of the legal options available to you and pursue justice on your behalf. These duties include: 

  • Duty to Inspect

    Property owners are expected to regularly inspect their premises to identify and address any potential hazards or dangerous conditions that could cause harm to visitors.

  • Duty to Maintain

    Property owners must take reasonable steps to maintain their property safely. This includes repairing or replacing any defective or dangerous conditions such as broken stairs, faulty handrails, or slippery surfaces.

  • Duty to Warn

    Property owners have a duty to warn visitors of any known hazards that may not be obvious to them. This could include posting signs or providing verbal warnings regarding potential dangers on the property.

  • Due to Provide Security

    In certain circumstances, property owners may have a duty to provide adequate security measures to protect visitors from foreseeable criminal acts, such as installing proper lighting, surveillance cameras, or security personnel.

  • Duty to Invitees, Licensees, and Trespassers

    Property owners owe different levels of duty depending on the legal status of the visitor. Invitees (e.g., customers) are owed the highest duty of care, followed by licensees (e.g., social guests), while trespassers are owed a lower duty but should not be subject to intentional harm.

Common Types of Premises Liability Cases

Our firm has successfully handled many types of premises liability cases in Crown Point and beyond. Common types of premises liability claims include:

  • Slips, Trips, and Falls

    Slip-and-fall accidents are common in premises liability claims. Examples include tripping over loose cables, slipping on wet floors that lack a proper warning sign, or falling due to uneven carpeting.

  • Swimming Pool Accidents

    Swimming pool accidents can lead to serious and even fatal injuries. If you were injured at someone else’s pool, you may be eligible for compensation from the property owner.

  • Night Security

    Property owners have a duty to provide adequate security measures, such as proper lighting and surveillance cameras, to protect their visitors from criminal acts. If you were injured due to inadequate security, you may be able to pursue a premises liability claim.

  • Animal Attacks

    Dog bites and other animal attacks are common in premises liability claims. If a property owner has a dog and fails to properly secure their property, they may be held liable for any injuries caused by the animal.

Seeking Compensation for Your Premises Liability Claim

If you were injured on someone else’s property, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your damages for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. However, premises liability claims can be complex and require thorough investigation and evidence to prove negligence on the part of the property owner. 

Our experienced attorneys understand the intricacies of premises liability cases in Indiana. We can work tirelessly to build a strong case for you and fight for the maximum compensation you deserve. We aim to help you recover physically, emotionally, and financially from your injury while holding the at-fault party accountable for their negligence, allowing you to focus on healing. 

Our firm can fight to recover full damages on your behalf, including: 

  • Economic Damages: These are financial losses incurred due to the premises liability accident, such as hospital bills, treatment costs, and lost earnings. 
  • Non-Economic Damages: These cover non-financial losses, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, and scarring/disfigurement.
  • Punitive Damages: In rare cases, you may be eligible to recover punitive damages after a premises liability accident. Unlike compensatory damages, punitive damages punish the defendant for intentional, malicious, and extremely reckless behavior. 

Our compassionate team can collaborate closely with you to maximize the value of your claim and evaluate the full extent of damages you may be eligible to recover.   

No Win. No Fee. Guaranteed.
