Premises Liability


Ottumwa / Oskaloosa Personal Injury Lawyer

Premises liability refers to the concept that property owners are responsible for providing a reasonably safe environment to those who visit the premises, whether as guests, customers, service personnel, or patrons. If the property owner is negligent in correcting a known hazard which results in the injuries of another, he or she may be liable for damages connected with the accident. Injuries that can occur may be the result of a property defect, such as a broken staircase, or may be the result of negligent security where visitors are attacked in a criminal act by a third party. Such accidents and incidents can occur on both public and private property.

If you have been injured on the premises of another in Ottumwa, Oskaloosa, or anywhere in Iowa, you should talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer about the injuries you sustained and the circumstances surrounding them.
