Victims of dangerous premises may receive compensation for their losses. You may receive financial awards if you were injured, become sick, or lost a loved one due to dangerous premises.
Bressman Law can provide a Grove City premises liability lawyer for your case. They will investigate, establish liability, and pursue compensation for your losses.
Who is Eligible for a Premises Liability Case?
You may be eligible for a premises liability case if you are a victim of negligence. Property owners have a duty of care to those who step onto their premises. This duty of care includes eliminating foreseeable hazards from the property.
Based on this duty of care, you may be eligible for a premises liability case if:
- A property owner (or another liable party) owed you a duty of care
- A property owner (or another liable party) failed to protect you from harm, breaching their duty of care as a consequence
- A property owner caused you harm
- Your lawyer can prove damages
A property owner must keep their premises free of danger. If they failed to do this and you or a loved one suffered harm, the property owner may be financially liable.

What Does a Liable Property Owner Pay for?
Whether the defendant in your case is a property owner or someone else, they may have to pay for all losses that they caused. Note that you may not be aware of all of your losses—we will project your future losses in addition to your current ones.
Some losses that may entitle you to compensation are:
Your Inability to Work (and Resulting Consequences)
If injury or illness prevents you from working, you may:
- Go without your regular wages
- Lose other forms of income (like performance-based bonuses)
- Experience stalling or regression in your professional path
- Have to reduce your hours
- Have to change jobs
- Experience a reduction in your earning power
More severe injuries and symptoms could cause permanent disability. This may cause a lifetime of lost income. You may deserve compensation to cover all of your professional damages.
Your Medical Care
Dangerous premises may cause burns, broken bones, head injuries, illness, or other ailments. The type of injury or illness you experience will determine the medical care that you require. You may receive awards for any of the following:
- An ambulance ride
- Emergency medical care
- Any other medical expenses caused by negligence
Our team will work with your doctors to understand your current and future medical needs.
Pain and Suffering
Injury, illness, and untimely death can cause significant pain and suffering. Some types of recoverable pain and suffering are:
- Emotional anguish
- Pain from injury or illness
- Lost quality of life
- Lost physical abilities
- Changes to your personality
- Conditions like anxiety and depression
Wrongful death cases may cause additional types of pain and suffering. Grief, loss of companionship, loss of parental guidance, and loss of emotional support may all entitle you to compensation.
Every victim of negligence experiences losses that are personal. Our team will need to speak with you, doctors, experts, and others to determine the precise value of your losses. This valuation process is one that a premises liability lawyer from our firm can complete for you.
