Do You Have a Premises Liability Injury Case in Tennessee?

Have you sustained an injury on someone else’s property in Tennessee? You may have a premises liability injury case. Premises liability law is a subset of personal injury law that deals with victims injured due to unsafe property conditions. Premises liability injuries can reduce your ability to work, enjoy an active lifestyle, or even accomplish basic tasks or activities many people take for granted. If you believe someone’s negligence or carelessness may have contributed to your injury, you must promptly contact a premises liability attorney to assess your case. You may be able to seek appropriate compensation for the injuries you have suffered.

In some circumstances, premises liability accidents can be deadly, affecting families and communities. You may have suffered a premises liability injury at a restaurant, a grocery store, a private residence, a workplace, an amusement park, a stadium, a shopping mall, a construction site, or while visiting any property.

Property owners or occupants must protect invitees from harmful conditions on the property. Owners must promptly repair defects or provide an adequate warning when they become aware of dangerous conditions. The owner’s duty of care may vary for trespassers, licensees, and invitees.

We are here to help victims of such injuries by holding the landlords responsible and seeking appropriate compensation for their damages. If you or a loved one have been injured on someone else’s property, contact us today at Tennessee Injury Attorneys to schedule a free consultation and begin planning your strategy.

  • Slip and fall accidents

  • Negligent security
  • Construction site accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Injuries due to inadequate maintenance or repairs
  • Falling objects
  • Missing warning signs
  • Faulty stairs or railings
  • Poor lighting
  • Elevator and escalator accidents

The Duty of a Landlord to an Invitee

The law defines an invitee as someone who has been invited to enter a landowner’s property for business or personal reasons, including members of the public who visit stores on the property.

The landlord is responsible for repairing and addressing known hazardous conditions affecting the invitees’ safety. Additionally, the landlord should inspect the premises for any unknown or otherwise dangerous conditions that could potentially cause harm to an invitee when they visit the property. Contact our experienced attorney team if you have been injured as an invitee on another’s property.

The Duty of a Landlord to a Licensee

Licensees are individuals who have permission to be on and benefit from the property. Landlords owe licensees a greater duty of care than invitees, as they must protect licensees from all known dangerous conditions. This effort includes inspecting the property for any hidden dangers.

If you have been injured due to dangerous conditions or another’s carelessness while acting as a licensee on another’s property, contact Tennessee Injury Attorneys today to speak with an experienced premises liability attorney.

Premises Liability Versus Trespassing

Trespassers are not permitted to enter or use land or property without the owner’s clearance and, therefore, are not owed any duty of protection from any danger that may be present. However, landlords are morally responsible for not using their property to intentionally harm a trespasser.

Suppose a trespasser is injured on the property due to dangerous conditions. In that case, the landlord can be held liable for not maintaining the safety of the property or alerting the trespasser of the potential dangers. If you have been injured while trespassing due to dangerous conditions that may or may not have been intentional, you have the right to pursue compensation for your injuries.

Understand The Insurance Companies Will Go To Great Lengths To Deny Your Premises Liability Claim

Insurance companies often seek to challenge claims by searching through a victim’s medical records, social media, and even their criminal history to dispute the nature and severity of injuries. You should avoid social media following a premises liability injury, disallowing posts by others that may display you in a manner that insurance companies could take out of context. Even an innocent photo of you at an event where others engaged in an activity can provide ammunition to the other side as evidence to suggest that you were active and that your injuries are not as severe as you claim.

Our experienced team at Tennessee Injury Attorneys knows how to fight back against such insurance company tactics. We also handle communications and settlement negotiations with the insurance companies for our clients. Discuss any related questions or concerns with your attorney during your free consultation or as they arise.

Determining Whether You Have a Case

In Tennessee, you can only recover under the legal theory of premises liability in a personal injury claim if you can prove that the property owner owed you a duty of care and failed to fulfill it. The law determines the duty owed by a business owner to an individual on the premises, requiring businesses to take reasonable measures to protect visitors from harm.

The focus is not solely on the owner or manager of the property; one must also look at the actions of both parties involved to determine whether there was negligence or fault. If you can prove that the property owner knew or should have known about any dangerous conditions on their property and failed to address them, they may be liable for any injuries suffered due to their negligence.

Tennessee is a comparative fault state, which means you could seek compensation from the other party even if you are partially responsible for your injuries.

If you believe you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence on their property, contact an experienced premises liability lawyer at Tennessee Injury Attorneys to determine what legal actions you should take next.
