Property owners and their managers are responsible to ensure that their premises are safe and secure. When those owners and managers are negligent in their responsibilities, Arizona premises liability laws legally protect innocent civilians from accidents, crime and personal injury.
Types of Personal Injuries Due to Premise Liability Negligence
Common examples of injuries suffered due to a property owner or manager’s premise liability negligence include:
- Slip and fall accidents due to poorly maintained walkways, parking lots or sidewalks, or obstructions, such as ice, oil and debris
- Falling objects or improper signage at construction sites
- Negligent security in public or commercial property
- Faulty amusement park rides
- Inadequate supervision resulting in a swimming pool accident
Injured Person Status
In order to obtain compensation for personal injuries sustained due to a property owner and/or its manager’s negligence, your injured person status of activity on the premises must be taken into consideration and may affect your ability to recover damages.
For instance, injuries suffered while trespassing on private property may disqualify a person from obtaining financial compensation for their damages. However, if your child was invited into a person’s home and suffered an injury while swimming in their pool, financial compensation for damages may be available.
The underlying factor that may have to be present for a person to receive compensation under premise liability law is that the property owner or its manager did not make a concerted effort to provide adequate safety for those entering the premises. If an accident occurs despite reasonable safety being provided, compensation may not be available. You need a premises liability attorney to determine if you have the grounds for a case.
Compensation for Premises Liability Injuries
Depending on the extent of personal injuries suffered and the nature of negligence, financial compensation for your injuries may include:
- Medical bills
- Loss of companionship, in the event of wrongful death or serious injury
- Mental and physical pain, suffering and/or trauma
- Diminished earning capacity
- Loss of wages
Arizona property owners, their managers and businesses may have the responsibility of maintaining adequate security and safety for civilians legally entering their premises. When complaints go unanswered, safety codes are unmet, or other apparent negligence results in personal injury, you need the assistance of a premises liability attorney who understands your needs and demands.
