Meta description: Contact a State College premises liability lawyer at Rehmeyer & Allatt if you have been injured at no fault of your own at someone else’s home or business.
Property owner’s and businesses have a duty to properly manage, supervise, operate and provide adequate security to avoid unnecessary harm and injuries to members of the public. Most people are familiar with the typical premises liability case involving a slip, trip and fall, but premises liability cases can also include dog bite attacks, failure to provide adequate security when a crime has been committed, injuries arising from ice and snow on sidewalks and parking lots, inadequate training of business employees that lead to injury, and injuries arising at amusement parks.
We often hear from our client’s that they are reluctant to pursue claims against a property owner as it is often the home of a neighbor, friend or relative. It is important to understand that as with any personal injury case, the claim is really against the property owner’s insurance company. Homeowner’s insurance provides a property owner with liability protection in the event that a claim is made against them for personal injuries arising from someone being injured at or on their property. As part of the liability protection afforded by the insurance policy, the property owner’s lawyer is paid for by their insurance company and any judgment or verdict rendered against the property owner is also paid for by their insurance company.
