Premises Liability | A Duty Of Care
Premises Liability: When you own property or reside on property, you have a duty of care to those visitors to the property. This could be a friendly visit, a patron at a business or someone passing through. When that duty is breached, a claim for premises liability may result.
If you have been injured in an accident, you likely have medical expenses, lost wages and other expenses related to the injury. In personal injury cases, the goal is to make that right for you and your family so that you do not have to worry. Holding a responsible party accountable hopefully means that future injuries to others may be prevented or avoided.
