Nashville Premises Liability Attorney

Property owners and business managers are expected to take reasonable actions to keep their premises safe. When an injury occurs due to a hazard on someone else’s property, the property owner or leaseholder can be held liable for the victim’s injuries—known as “damages” in a premises liability claim. The property owner’s liability insurance must provide compensation for damages, but all too often insurers dispute their policyholder’s liability or significantly undervalue the amount of compensation available to the victim.

If you’ve been injured due to a property owner’s carelessness, you deserve strong legal representation to give you the best chance of recovering the compensation you deserve. Call the Nashville premises liability attorney at Selvidge Injury Law today to learn more about your options. We offer free consultations, schedule yours today.

What Is Premises Liability?

In Tennessee, the law expects property owners to take reasonable care to prevent harm from coming to anyone lawfully on the property. This law applies to commercial business properties and private property. When a property owner or leaseholder doesn’t take reasonable actions to address a hazard, they are liable for any damages an injury victim suffers. Proving liability for a premises accident like a slip-and-fall injury requires proving the following:

  • The property owner had a duty of care toward the injury victim to take reasonable measures to prevent injury
  • They breached this duty by behaving negligently
  • Their negligent breach of duty directly caused an injury to the victim
  • The injury victim suffered economic and non-economic damages

Common Premises Liability Cases in Nashville

When a sudden, unexpected injury occurs due to a negligent property owner, the victim shouldn’t be left with the undue burden of expenses. Common injuries in premises liability cases occur through the following:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Trip-and-fall accidents
  • Falls from heights (broken balconies and stair rails)
  • Dog bites
  • Pool accidents
  • Assaults due to insufficient security
  • Fires
  • Falling objects
  • Elevator and escalator injuries

Many premises liability accidents occur in stores, hotels, restaurants, parking lots, and public spaces. Private homeowners also have a responsibility to prevent injuries to those lawfully on their property, including delivery people and others approaching the home for legitimate purposes.

What Compensation Can I Get From a Premises Liability Claim in Tennessee?

Serious injuries quickly become expensive. When a business owner or property owner fails to address a hazard, their property liability insurance must pay compensation. Compensation available to victims of premises accidents includes:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and future income loss
  • Lowered future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other non-economic damages in some cases such as PTSD, loss of enjoyment of life, or disfigurement compensation

If you’ve been injured, you deserve compassionate legal counsel to recover your losses while you focus on maximizing your physical recovery.
