Premises Liability

Premises Liability Attorneys in Memphis

Helping You Get Paid after an Injury on Dangerous Property

Whether you’re in a store, at a hotel, or in an office building, you have the right to expect that the property is safe or, at the very least, to be warned about any non-obvious hazards that could cause you harm. You’d owe this same duty to a visitor in your home — it’s not an unreasonable burden. Lawyers refer to this general idea as premises liability law.

If you’ve been injured because of an accident or attack that occurred on someone else’s property, you can rely on the Memphis premises liabilty attorneys of Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC for effective representation in the Memphis Tri-State area of western Tennessee, eastern Arkansas, and northern Mississippi.

Don’t hesitate to call (901) 526-2126 or contact a Memphis premises liability lawyer today for a free consultation.

The Three Classifications of Property Visitors

Your reason for visiting the property where you were injured can have a huge affect on your premises liability case.

There are generally three different classifications of visitors:

  • An invitee. This means someone who has been invited onto the property, whether commercial or residential. An example of this is a customer in a store.
  • A licensee. This is a person who enters the property as a social guest and has the consent of the owner but may have not been formally invited.
  • A trespasser. This is a person who enters the property illegally.
Each classification of visitor is owed some degree of responsibility by the property owner, with an invitee being owed the highest standard of care and trespassers the lowest. However, in all cases, the burden of proof falls to the injured person, not the property owner. Unless a thorough, independent investigation gets underway quickly, you may not have the evidence you need to prove your claims.

What Accidents are Considered "Premises Liabilty"?

Property owners can be negligent in many different ways. For example, inadequate lighting in a restaurant or hotel parking lot might lead directly to a violent assault. Similarly, a broken rail or stair riser could cause someone to fall and suffer broken bones or a serious back or head injury.

Specific types of premises liability cases we handle include:

In any case, it is important to notify the business or individual who owns the property and to seek appropriate medical attention. You should also try to take photographs and get the names and contact information of any potential witnesses. Our attorneys can act quickly to do these things for you.

Will My Premises Liability Case Go to Settlement or Trial?

Although most personal injury lawsuits settle, obtaining a fair settlement isn’t likely to happen unless the defendant and its insurers know that you are represented by lawyers who know their way around a courtroom. With more than 150 years of combined experience and a nearly 50-year track record of successful results in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi courts, our Memphis premises liability lawyers can fight for the maximum amount of compensation you deserve. You won’t have to worry that your claims won’t be taken seriously.
