Fort Wayne Premises Liability Attorneys
Indiana’s premises liability laws protect citizens from harm when entering private establishments. Every property owner and manager is required by law to ensure the safety of all who enter their property, whether that be from crime, slip and fall accidents, or hazardous construction sites.
If you have been injured due to a property owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. There is a time limit in Indiana for filing a personal injury claim, so do not wait. Call or contact Truitt Law Offices as soon as possible.

What is Premises Liability Law?
Premises liability law is the legal principle that states that the owner of a property is responsible when someone comes onto their property and gets hurt because of a harmful condition. A lawyer will base their premises liability lawsuit on the negligence of the property owner.
What Compensation is Available for a Premises Liability Injury?
If the negligence or misconduct of a property owner or manager results in a personal injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages, which can include:
- Related medical bills
- Loss of companionship and funeral expenses in the unfortunate event of wrongful death
- Loss of wages
- Lower earning capacity
- Disfigurement and/or amputation
- Permanent scarring
- Psychological counseling
How Can Injuries Due to Premises Liability Happen?
Premises liability lawsuits may be filed if a property owner or manager’s negligence directly resulted in you sustaining a personal injury. Common scenarios include:
- Negligent security in apartment complexes or other commercial properties.
- A lack of parental supervision or appropriate security surrounding a private swimming pool.
- Falling objects and other hazards, or improper signage, resulting in construction site accidents.
- Broken bones due to a slip and fall accident, which may be caused due to hazardous objects or inadequately maintained sidewalks or parking lots.
- Amusement parks with poorly maintained rides, resulting in a personal injury
- Failure to follow building codes and regulations.
Why Do You Need a Premises Liability Lawyer?
Premises liability laws are complex and require an experienced premises liability attorney in order to navigate and obtain compensation for damages.
For instance, if you have suffered a personal injury due to the negligence of a property owner or manager, your injured person status must be proven to be legal. While some premises liability lawsuits require little expertise in proving a valid injured person status, an inexperienced premises liability attorney may be unable to prove a legal injured person status in more complicated cases.
