This area of negligence or personal injury law includes bodily injury from a dangerous condition or activity on the premises. This law usually favors the property owner and requires that the injured person prove that the property owner either created or caused the dangerous event or condition, or knew about it before the injury event took place and did not take any action to correct or make safe the dangerous condition or warn the injured person of it.
Home owners, renters, and businesses usually have liability insurance that will pay for the defense of the property owner or business against personal injury or negligence claims and the insurance coverage or benefits that would pay for the injuries or damages in question. To help with your serious or catastrophic injuries from a dangerous property condition or activity on the property, you need to work with a law firm that specializes in personal injury law and that knows what types of insurance coverage apply and how to get you the full value or maximum compensation available. During this time, your attorney should treat you with compassion and understanding.
