A large, obvious hazard caused my fall, so the owner must be responsible.

Premises liability laws state that owners do not have a responsibility to warn visitors of any open and obvious hazards such as a large mound of snow in a parking lot.

I filled out an incident report, so the store/owner will send me a check.

Employees are usually required to make out an incident report after an accident occurs, and it is primarily used to protect the owner, not you.

I was injured in my rental home, so my landlord will have to pay my injury bills.

Most tenant/landlord agreements relieve the landlord of responsibility for injuries to a tenant and others inside the rented unit. Landlords and owners are typically only liable when injuries occur in common areas such as hallways, stairwells, or laundry rooms.
