Premises liability law applies when a person suffers injuries while on someone else’s property. Premises liability claims often involve injuries caused by slip and fall or trip and fall incidents, negligent security, and injuries in swimming pools.
If you were injured on someone else’s property, you and your family might be entitled to compensation. Our lawyers can help you recover money for medical bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium.
A personal injury lawyer at Michigan Injury Attorneys can evaluate your claim, explain your options, and help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
The basis of a premises liability claim is that landowners owe a duty of care to people who come onto their property. The specific nature of that duty depends on the relationship between the injured person and the landowner. When a person comes onto someone else’s land, they can be classified as an invitee, a licensee, or a trespasser. Different rights and duties apply based on why the person was there.
Property owners owe a guest a different duty of care depending on why the guest was there.
