Can I sue if I get injured on someone else’s property?
If you are injured on someone else’s property, you might be eligible for compensation. Compensation that you may be eligible for includes:
- Medical bills in the past and the future
- Rehabilitation therapy
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Assistive devices and transportation
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish and emotional distress
- Inability to perform certain functions
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
However, to be eligible for any of the compensation listed above, you will need to prove the following:
- The property owner created the dangerous condition;
- The property owner had actual knowledge about the dangerous condition; or
- The property owner should have known about the dangerous condition because through the exercise of due care, a “reasonable” person would have discovered it; and
- The property owner either failed to remove or repair the condition; or failed to warn about the dangerous condition, provided the warning would have made the condition safe.
If you get injured, it is important to schedule a consultation with a personal injury attorney right away. Call the Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas today!
