PERSONAL OR THIRD PARTY PROPERTY ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
Compensation for Injuries that Occur on Someone Else’s Property
When serious injuries occur in an accident on another’s property — on commercial property or private property — the injured person may be able to seek compensation from a homeowners’ insurance policy or a general liability policy. This is especially true where the negligence of the property owner was a contributing factor in the accident.
For example, if a child is injured when a home-made tree house falls from a tree or a pedestrian is bitten by an unrestrained dog, the homeowner can be held accountable through a personal injury claim and compensation can be recovered via the homeowners’ policy.
However, breach of a contract can also be a factor in these types of cases. For example, if your lease declares that the landlord is going to keep your property up to code and the code requires a handrail for all staircases, all staircases must have handrails. If your stairs do not have a handrail and you are seriously injured in a fall on the stairs, you may be able to hold your landlord personally responsible for medical bills and other damages.
