Premises liability cases: Remedies.

Determining liability will depend on the details of the case. In most instances, property owners are required to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of their property. Establishing a successful case generally requires the victim to establish that a "reasonable" person would have realized the danger was present and fixed it.

It is also important to note that time restrictions may be present for a claim. For example, those who are injured due to a pothole or broken sidewalk in Providence may have a claim against the city. These claims are generally governed by city ordinances and can have strict time restrictions. In Providence, the City Clerk's Office states that claims for damage connected to a pothole must be made within seven days of the incident. Within this time period, the victim is expected to prepare the required city documents and include copies of estimates from two different sources and medical bills.

Premises liability cases: Legal counsel can help.

Victims who believe they may have a premises liability case are wise to seek the counsel of a slip-and-fall injury lawyer. This legal professional can review your case and work to better ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
