Were You Injured On Someone Else's Property?

If you are shopping in a store, eating in a restaurant, or even if you are a guest in someone's home, you have a right to expect that you will not be injured as the result of dangerous conditions on the property. If you are injured, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and other losses. This area of law is known as premises liability.

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to pursue an injury claim on your own. The insurance company of the property owner will do everything in its power to show that you were the cause of your own injury—or that you were not really injured. At the law firm of Satterley & Kelley PLLC in Louisville, our lawyers have the experience to take on insurance companies and win. Call 800-655-2117 for a free case evaluation.

The following are common ways in which you can be injured on another's property and have a right to receive compensation:

  • Electrical fires/failures
  • Slip and fall in a retail store due to slippery surfaces or dangerous obstructions
  • Obstructed pathways or exits
  • Poorly built or maintained stairs
  • Dog bite in a public place or at a private home
  • Defective or improperly maintained/supervised amusement park ride
  • Unsupervised/defective swimming pools
  • Toxic chemicals
  • Lack of or insufficient security

In the past, Kentucky law made it difficult for injured people to recover compensation if the unsafe condition was "open and obvious." In many cases, judges dismissed premises liability cases before they reached a jury. In recent years, however, courts are leaving the distinction of what is open and obvious to the jury to decide.
