This will depend on who was negligent. If the property is in disrepair, and the owner should have known about the damage, it is highly possible they are responsible. Owners may also be responsible when an employee that is working in behalf of the owner causes injuries, false arrests and other complaints. It may also depend on whether you were invited on the property or not. If you are injured in a retail store, you were invited to shop there. Inspecting a construction area when no one is around, you probably were not invited. Children injured, whether invited or not, may be able to receive compensation for their injuries. Stores are under specific laws that require that notices be placed for certain hazards, such as wet floors. Consulting with an experienced Premises Liability attorney will assist in verifying your rights to receive compensation for your claims.
