Premises Liability in Southern Indiana

Skilled Personal Injury Attorneys Helping Southern Indiana Clients Win Their Premises Liability Claims

Property owners in Indiana have a responsibility to keep their premises safe and free of hazards. If an owner fails to do so, and someone falls or suffers an injury due to these unsafe conditions, they may be compelled to compensate the victim. However, there are certain factors that must be established before an injured person can move forward with pursuing a premises liability claim. If you have suffered an injury at the hands of a negligent property owner, contact the experienced personal injury attorneys at Ooley Law today to discuss the details of your situation.

The Owner’s Duty of Care

The owner of a property has a specific duty to keep their premises in a safe condition. In order to move forward with a successful premises liability claim, you’ll need to demonstrate that you were legally allowed on the property as an invitee. For instance, if you were a shopper who slipped and fell on the slick surface of a market, you will likely be able to pursue a claim. However, if you were trespassing on private property and you tripped and fell, the owner did not owe you a duty of care and cannot be sued for their failure to protect your safety.

Take Action Today

The first step in moving forward with a premises liability claim is discussing the specifics of your situation with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney. Premises liability cases can be complicated, so it’s key that you work with an experienced attorney who can address your concerns and answer your questions. However, it’s important to act quickly, as the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Indiana is typically two years from the incident date.
