Do I Need An Owensboro Premises Liability Attorney?
All property owners — an individual, company, government or any other entity — are legally responsible to maintain property in a reasonable manner that ensures no unsafe conditions exist. If unsafe conditions do exist, property owners are required to post clear, conspicuous warnings to visitors. Failure to do so can lead to otherwise preventable injuries and liability on behalf of the property owner.
Have you been injured on someone else’s property? If so, you may have sufficient grounds for a premises liability lawsuit.
An Owensboro premises liability attorney can help you recover the costs of your medical expenses, time away from work, pain and suffering, and any other losses (or future losses) you have or will suffer as a result of your injury.
You do not pay a retainer or any money to start your case. We collect our fee from the recovery. We are ONLY paid if you win.

What Do I Do If Was Injured On Someone’s Property?
This is likely the first question you have and the process, while simple, needs to be followed because whether you have a claim or not depends on the evidence you have and what can reasonably be proven in court.
Step 1: Immediately seek medical attention
You should go see a doctor immediately in order to ensure you receive prompt care. Of course, if you are dealing with a lot of pain, this is an obvious first step. That being said, even if you do not feel tremendous pain or feel you may be able to “manage” without seeing a doctor, you should still make the trip to see a doctor and have them assess your condition.
The reason for this is simple: sometimes symptoms will not appear until days or weeks later. This is most common in car accidents or slip and falls, where back injuries or whiplash is common. After the initial shock and pain of the injury wears off, pain manifests itself later, only for you to find out down the road that you should have received medical treatment sooner.
The second reason — and just as important if you want to pursue compensation — is you need documentation to prove that the injury you suffered was due to the premises liability.
Step 2: Take photographs and collect witness information
If possible, you should use your cell phone to take photo and/or video evidence of your injuries immediately and as you heal. You should also take photo and/or video evidence where the injury took place, if possible. It’s important to capture whatever dangerous condition caused the accident.
You should also request the names and contact information of anyone who witnessed the incident.
Step 3: Report the accident and/or file a police report
You should immediately file a police report and/or report the accident to the property owner. If medical personnel were involved, obtain whatever reports they have available.
For example, if the accident occured in a store, you should report the incident to the supervisor and request a written report, if possible.
Step 4: Gather and preserve all evidence
You may be entitled to recovery of medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages as a result of your injury. It is important to gather and preserve all evidence related to your injury. This includes photos, videos, reports, witness statements and contact information, as well as receipts for expenses related to medical care. If we take your case, we will request and gather all of this information on your behalf.
Step 5: Talk to an Owensboro Premises Liability Attorney
Do not sign anything without first speaking to a competent premises liability attorney about your potential claim. You do not want to risk signing away your rights to a fair recovery. For this same reason, you should decline to give any statements regarding the incident without first consulting with an attorney.
