Why Hire a lawyer?

A premises liability claim may seem straightforward at first, but a myriad factors may arise and complicate a case. Hiring a lawyer will not only increase the chances of succeeding with a premises liability claim, but also often leads to much more compensation than would have been possible to secure otherwise. Your lawyer can explore all available avenues of compensation and even negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf in addition to representing your interests in court.

What Is a Premises Liability Claim?

Property owners, both private and commercial, must ensure their properties are in a safe condition for all lawful visitors to those properties. A property owner owes a duty of care to friends, relatives, and neighbors who visit his or her property. The property owner also owes a duty of care to people with implied or express permission to enter the property for their own purposes, such as mail carriers, utility workers, and salespeople. If a property owner notices a foreseeable safety issue and does not address it in a timely manner or at least warn lawful visitors of the issue's existence, the property owner will likely absorb liability if a lawful visitor suffers an injury from the hazard.

The distinction between a lawful visitor and a trespasser is an important one. Property owners do not owe duties of care to trespassers except in cases involving trespassing children. For example, if a property owner lives near a school or near a family with small children, the property owner should take reasonable steps to prevent any interloping children from suffering injuries, even if they do not have permission to enter the property.

There are a variety of different premises liability claims, including:
  • Trip / Slip & Fall
  • Failure to Warn
  • Building Collapses
  • Inadequate Lighting
  • Defective Stairways
  • Balcony or Deck Defects
  • Negligence by Owner
  • Exposure to Toxic Fumes or Chemicals
  • Swimming Pool Accidents

Potential Recovery from a Successful Montana Premises Liability Claim

A premises liability claim can help an injured victim recover his or her medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering resulting from a slip and fall or other injuries on another person's property. Ultimately, the recovery available usually reflects the victim's economic damages and includes compensation for his or her pain and suffering. It is also possible for a defendant to face punitive damages if his or her negligence exceeds the scope of typical negligence or if a plaintiff's injuries resulted from the defendant's criminal activity.
