Common Types of Claims
Although a slip and fall incident is the most common type of premises liability claim, there are many other instances that could lead injury victims to speak with a lawyer.
Below are some of the most common types of claims.
- Swimming pool slip and fall
- Elevator/Escalator falls
- Snow and ice accidents
- Construction zone accidents
- Supermarket falls
- Amusement park accidents
- Asbestos exposure
No matter the type of property where an accident may have occurred, property owners are liable for injuries incurred due to property hazards. Additionally, the owner is held liable should they have failed to keep their property in safe conditions.
The owner/occupier has a duty to exercise reasonable care in the management of the premises to protect a visitor from foreseeable dangers. For example, at a supermarket, the owners and staff have a duty to clean up and mark slippery surfaces in order to prevent falls. A premises owner has a duty to remove ice and snow that has been tracked onto the premises that could cause unsafe conditions.
Victims of negligent property management may be entitled to recover damages for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. The statute of limitations for filing a premises liability claim in Indiana is two years.
