Premise Liability

When a property owner does not take the time and care to maintain their property they run the risk of people getting injured. A property owner that creates hazardous conditions, is held liable for any damages or injury of another person and/or their property.

Most personal injury cases are related to premise liability. Blatantly not maintaining your property or participating in negligent behaviors can lead to an injury or wrongful death.

What is a Premise Liability Case?

In most instances, premise liability cases here in Utah fall under the broader scope of personal injury cases. An accident occurred on the premises of a third party due to negligence or hazardous conditions.

Why Would You Need an Attorney for Premise Liability

The plaintiff (injured person) is responsible for proving that the property owner is legally responsible for the injuries.

There are a variety of things that are important to prove your claim, and justify a settlement or a verdict.

A premise liability or a personal injury attorney can help you through the process and ensure that you can prove:

  • that the owner of the property actually owns the property where your injury occurred.
  • that there was negligence and improper care for their property.
  • that an injury happened, and the effects and real impact of your injury on your life.
  • that negligence is the cause of your injury.

The right attorney will take the time to hear the details, understand the full impact of your injury, and help you know if your case is viable. They will also look for ways to help you be empowered around your claim and your case to pursue the best course for action based on your unique needs.

Steps in the Process for a Premise Liability Case



Set up free consultation to meet with one of our attorneys and discuss questions and concerns you have about your case.



After discussing your case and determining if we are a good fit, we will schedule a secondary call or in-person meeting to customize an action plan and discuss the preliminaries of your case.



Following our meeting, one of our experienced personal injury paralegals will reach out and ask any follow-up questions and collect any remaining information needed to get your case started.



We will begin to establish your case. This will involve collecting information about the accident (emergency room and Doctors’ visits, insurance requests), gathering documents pictures, and information regarding the location and surrounding environment where the injury occurred,  your injury and the treatment plan, etc.



Your attorney will follow up within 30 days to see how your treatment and recovery are going. Everything will be documented in detail and your progress will be tracked. We follow up with you at let once a month to see how things are going and to keep you in the loop. Once treatment has been complete then we move onto step 6.



We prepare a demand letter and any other necessary paperwork to send it out to file your claim.



We will monitor the status of your claim, and continue to follow up with you and all necessary parties to keep it going forward.  This step typically takes anywhere from two weeks to 30 days.



Negotiations will follow, which can take days or weeks to complete. This is where we may settle if it makes sense for your case, move to mediation or arbitration depending on your specific case needs.



If we choose to move forward with any case that is filed with the court (Arbitration, Jury Trial) we will take the appropriate steps until your case is complete. This process can be challenging and timely and if or when we reach this step we will take you through to completion. 



Move forward with confidence and peace of mind knowing that our attorneys did everything within their power to ensure you were rightfully taken care of for the future.
