Suing for Injury on Private Property in Pennsylvania
When a property hazard causes an injury, the accident may give rise to a premises liability claim. This means the property owner, or other parties, may be “liable” (responsible) for injuries sustained on the “premises” (property). If the injury resulted from the property owner’s carelessness – for example, if negligent property maintenance led to an unsafe condition – the victim may be able to recover compensation.
In order to be compensated, the claimant or plaintiff must prove certain facts, which must be supported by evidence. For instance, it is necessary to show that the property owner’s actions – or in some instances, the lack thereof – were what caused the accident and resulting injuries.
There are two general approaches to pursuing compensation: negotiating a settlement outside of court, or going to trial, which is called “litigation.” Though most personal injury cases are settled through negotiation before trial ever begins, our attorneys will begin preparing for the possibility of litigation from day one, ensuring that we are ready with a focused and aggressive strategy at each stage of your case. If the negligent party is unwilling to make a reasonable settlement offer, we will be ready to argue your case in court.
Throughout the process, we will work to maximize the value of your claim. Depending on the nature of your injuries and how they affect your life, it may be possible to recover compensation for:
- Diminished earning capacity
- Future medical treatment
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Lost earnings
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
Injury victims should keep in mind that claims are time-sensitive – particularly in cases involving public property, which are subject to special legal rules. The sooner you can consult with an attorney, the stronger of a position you will be in when seeking damages.
