Real estate owners and tenants can be held legally responsible for certain injuries that occur on their property. If you've been injured in a swimming pool or slip-and-fall accident, suffered from a dog bite or been hit by falling debris on someone else's property, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against the property owner. Personal injury law firms and premises liability attorneys can review the circumstances of your accident to determine whether you have a viable case. If you have a strong claim, then your lawyers can take legal action on your behalf. You may be entitled to compensation to pay for accident-related medical treatment, disability, lost wages, damaged or destroyed property, and other related expenses.
