Types of Chester Premises Liability Cases We Handle

Various types of accidents can occur when property owners are careless. Consider the following examples:

  • Inadequate outdoor lighting results in trip and falls at night, because guests can’t seeobstructions in their paths
  • A slip and fall occurs at a supermarket or other such establishment because an employee mops a floor but fails to put out a sign indicating the floor is wet
  • A person is assaulted at a nightclub or bar due to lack of adequate security
  • A fire breaks out and leads to injury because a property owner ignored the fire code when allowing an excessive number of guests into a building
  • A dangerous dog or other such animal attacks a guest

Seeking Compensation for a Chester Premises Liability Accident

If you’ve been injured on someone else’s property because they were negligent, you can seek compensation for such losses as the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages, if you can’t return to work until you’ve fully recovered from your injuries
  • Certain non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, etc.

Depending on the severity of your injuries, you might also need to account for potential future losses when determining how much compensation you should seek. For example, if you’ve been seriously injured, you may require ongoing medical treatment, or you might be unable to return to work indefinitely.

(Tip: Don’t worry if you don’t know how to calculate the potential cost of future losses. This is a task a qualified West Chester premises liability lawyer can assist you with.)

Pursuing the compensation you deserve will typically involve filing a claim with the insurance of the negligent property owner. If their insurance company stubbornly refuses to offer an acceptable settlement, you have the option of filing a lawsuit to pursue damages in court.
