Most Business and Property Owners carry Liability Insurance for accidents occurring on their premises caused by negligent conditions there. The key to whether you have a valid Liability Insurance Claim is whether the owner of the business or premises owed a duty to you to keep you safe from harm. If the owner breached that duty to you, a subsequent accident caused by the negligent condition may lead to injuries for which you may file a claim. Examples include:
When considering filing a premises liability claim, action should be taken in a timely manner. The first reason this is important is that you want to protect and preserve vital evidence on the case. Secondly, there may be statues of limitations that limit the time you have to file a claim after an injury has occurred. If you have reason to believe the negligence of a property owner has contributed to an injury you have sustained, then speaking to a premises liability lawyer should be a priority.

Further, premises liability may also compensate the surviving family members in the event of death to a loved one.
