Regardless of the type of premises liability accident that occurs, when a person is hurt due to the negligence or recklessness of a property owner the victim deserves to be compensated for their injuries.
Compensation for Premises Liability Injuries
Compensation for premises liability cases is the same as those for other types of personal injury claims. Injury victims are entitled to the economic and noneconomic losses stemming from the accident. Economic damages cover all out of pocket expenses, including medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and the loss of future income and benefits. Noneconomic damages include compensation for pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss and enjoyment of life, disability, and disfigurement.
In the worst premises liability cases, where the victim loses their life as a result of their injuries, the loved ones of the victim can also seek compensation as part of a wrongful death case. Compensation for wrongful death includes all final medical bills, lost wages, funeral and burial costs, any pain and suffering incurred by the victim, and for the loss of love, support, guidance, and counsel by the victim for immediate family members.
