Riverside Premises Liability Lawyer
If you were hurt on someone else’s property, at a business, in a government building, or even on a sidewalk, you could have a premises liability case and be eligible for financial compensation.
You have the right to sue if you were hurt due to the negligence of someone else. These cases can be challenging, which is why it is in your best interest to work with a Riverside premises liability lawyer from Dickson, Kohan & Bablove, LLP.
Types of Premises Liability Cases
Any injuries suffered due to the negligence of a property owner or maintenance company could fall under this category. Listed below are some common examples of premises liability cases:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Being struck by a falling object
- Getting burned by scalding water, a fire, or explosion
A Riverside premises liability lawyer from our office can meet with you, discuss the details of your accident, and inform you of what your settlement could be worth.
What to Do After Your Injury
Other than visiting a doctor, it is critical that you take the time to document everything about your accident after your injury. Taking pictures or video and documenting all of the items below will provide evidence to strengthen your personal injury case:
- Where your accident took place
- When the accident occurred
- Why it happened and the conditions around you at the time
- Any witnesses who saw you get hurt or were aware of the danger
You may also need to file an incident or accident report with the police or responsible business or agency. This requirement is common with large corporations and government entities, and it will also be invaluable to your Riverside premises liability lawyer when developing your case.
If you fail to document what happened or file a report, it could appear that you weren’t injured at this location and are simply trying to recover financial damages. Taking steps to document and report your accident is necessary for proving what actually happened.
Your Legal Options
You have the right to sue and recover financial compensation for what happened to you. A Riverside premises liability lawyer from our office can build a strong case and then either negotiate with the negligent party or file a lawsuit on your behalf.
Keep in mind that you do not necessarily have to go to court, even after the lawsuit has been filed. We may be able to reach a fair settlement through out-of-court negotiations, and a premises liability lawsuit may be what convinces the other party to negotiate in good faith.
Proving Your Premises Liability Case by Establishing Negligence
Since an accident like a slip and fall could be the fault of a property owner or due to your own carelessness, investigative resources must be applied to your case in order to establish negligence. We will research your accident and discover exactly what happened in order to build a case that proves you were the true victim.
The other party is likely to dispute your injury claims, making it necessary to have a Riverside premises liability lawyer on your side. Without legal representation, you may not receive a settlement or it may be much smaller than it should be.
Valuing Your Premises Liability Injury Claim
We know what the industry standards are for injury settlements. This ensures that you will never accept a low-ball offer and will instead receive a settlement that properly accounts for all of your accident-related expenses. Your Riverside premises liability lawyer will maximize the value of your injury claim by ensuring that everything is factored in that should be:
- Your lost wages and income
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Surgeries and medical procedures
- Funds to pay for retraining or schooling if you are no longer able to work in the same capacity or profession
- Cost to retrofit your home to accommodate your injury
Compensation for Long-Term Injuries
If your injuries are severe and lead to long-term complications or even a permanent disability, you will need a Riverside premises liability lawyer from our office to assist you and ensure you receive enough compensation to pay for your future expenses.
Otherwise, you risk suffering the financial consequences of not receiving a large enough settlement. Injuries resulting in a permanent or long-term disability may also qualify you for ongoing Social Security disability payments.
