Premises liability: Falls at rental properties may warrant claims

Jan 16, 2018 | 0 comments

Suffering injuries on someone else’s property can cause many difficulties. Individuals may find themselves having to contend with medical expenses, time away from work, injury recovery and other hardships that may cost them time, money and enjoyment of life. In such cases, the possibility exists that the property owner or other parties could be liable for resulting injuries, and premises liability claims may be warranted.

New York residents may be interested in one out-of-state woman’s claim for such an event. Reports stated that she had been visiting her daughter at a rental property when the incident occurred. Apparently, she tripped on a sprinkler head and fell as a result. It was unclear what type of injuries or other negative outcomes may have come about due to the fall.

Nonetheless, the woman filed a legal claim against the landscaping company associated with the property as well as the homeowners association. She believes that these entities did not fix a dangerous condition and did not provide warning of the hazard. She is hoping that a successful claim will allow her to receive over $15,000 in compensation for resulting damages.

Falls can easily cause individuals to suffer a number of injuries. Some of the resulting damages could cause significant hardships for the affected parties. New York residents who have been hurt due to unsafe conditions on another person’s property may wish to consider filing premises liability claims of their own. Consulting with experienced attorneys may help interested parties determine their best courses of action for seeking compensation.
