Farmington Hills Premises Liability Lawyer

Understanding Premises Liability Cases in the Detroit Metro Area & throughout the State of Michigan

For most public and private properties, someone is in charge of maintenance and of making sure that no personal injury could occur due to property conditions. Therefore, that person should be held responsible in case someone is injured in an accident caused by the property in their care. Uneven pavement could cause someone to trip, or an icy walkway could result in a slip and fall accident. When such accidents occur on private property, it can be easier to prove the liability of the landowner. However, it can be very difficult to determine premises liability on public property. In either situation, a Farmington Hills personal injury lawyer will be more than qualified to help.

Who Is at Fault?

If you were injured on someone else's property, it might be difficult to determine if it was the fault of the owner or a result of your own mistake. One question you should be asking is, "Was the owner unreasonably negligent?" A judge or jury will assess a few things to determine if this is true. First, they will look at the standards of care for the property and see if they were met or not. This essentially means they will make sure the building was up to code and safely designed.

Next, they will assess to see if the owner properly maintained and checked the premises. In addition, they will determine if the owner alerted visitors or tenants of known danger by putting up signs or barriers. To be fair to the owner, they will look at how much time had passed with the danger causing a present hazard, to see if it was long enough for the owner to have known.

If the judge or jury determines that the owner did not do one or more of these things, then they could hold them responsible for your damages. If they determine that your injury was a result of your own inattention, however, they may also hold you responsible and force you to pay for all or part of the damages. To avoid paying for an injury that wasn't your fault, contact a premises liability attorney from our firm that can guide you through the process of filing a claim.
