What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is a legal theory. Pennsylvania charges property owners and property possessors responsible for providing a reasonably safe environment for certain guests and visitors to their property.
A premises liability claim may arise from any accident occurring on commercial, private, residential, or government property, including but not limited to:
- Apartment complexes;
- Retail stores;
- Grocery stores;
- Office buildings;
- College dorms;
- Stadiums; and
- Movie theaters.
Types of Premises Liability Claims in West Chester
Premises liability law is a broad category of personal injury law. There are numerous types of premises liability claims, such as:
- Slip, trip, and falls;
- Falling objects;
- Dog bites;
- Negligent security;
- Swimming pool accidents;
- Amusement park accidents; and
- Elevator and escalator accidents.
Establishing a West Chester Premises Liability Claim
Proving a premises liability claim in Pennsylvania, except for animal bites, requires showing a property owner was negligent. Negligence claims must meet the following elements:
- The property owner owed the victim a duty of care;
- The property owner breached that duty of care;
- The breach caused the victim’s injuries; and
- The breach resulted in actual damages.
Without actual damages, like medical bills, or pain and suffering, there is no claim for premises liability.
Damages in a Premises Liability Claim
Compensation in a premises liability claim depends on the types and extent of a victim’s injuries and losses. However, most claims in personal injury cases include compensation for the following:
- Medical bills and expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Loss of earning potential;
- Mental and emotional trauma;
- Pain and suffering; and
- When applicable, wrongful death expenses.
Every premises liability claim is different and qualifies for various types of compensation. Call an experienced premises liability attorney, like ours at Wilk Law, to talk about the compensation available in your claim.
