Indiana Business Property Injury Lawyer
Holding Business Owners Accountable for Your Injuries in Indiana
Injuries can happen anywhere. They can occur while shopping at the grocery store or the mall, walking to your car in a parking structure, visiting your local coffee shop, in a restaurant or movie theater, or even in an office building, clinic, or doctor’s office. These accidents and injuries have all kinds of causes from slippery floors to objects falling on you, criminal attacks, and more. They can result in all kinds of injuries as well from sprains to bruises to torn ligaments, broken bones, and head injuries.
Can you hold a business liable when you have been injured on its property? That depends on if you can prove “fault” on the part of the landowner or the property owner. These individuals or companies cannot guarantee that you won’t accidentally slip and fall on one of their floors, for example. They may or may not be responsible for that type of accident. That is why the circumstances of where, why, and how the accident happened come into play. An Indiana business property injury attorney can help you determine if you have the grounds to pursue a valid claim for compensation.
Holding Business Property Owners Accountable
In order to prove fault on the part of the business property owner, it is necessary to look at the duty of care that is owed you while visiting the property. For example, a trespasser is owned little or no duty of care in providing safety measures while on the business property. Customers, clients, patrons, service personnel, employees, and tenants, however, who are on the property lawfully are owed certain protections from the business property owner or manager. They are owed the highest level of care in protecting these people from unnecessary safety risks or hazards such as slippery floors, broken railings, potholes, negligent security, large patches of snow or ice, broken sidewalks, and more.
A business property owner can be held responsible for your injuries when he or she knew a safety hazard existed such as those mentioned above. They can also be held responsible if they should have known that a dangerous condition existed because it continued long enough to be discovered. This can be done by inspections of the property on a timely basis so as to keep it safe for visitors. Such inspections are called for under Indiana law. Business property owners also have a duty of care to handle such risky conditions as masses of snow and ice where visitors to the property will be walking.
