How is Liability Determined?

Establishing liability in a premises liability case involves demonstrating that the property owner or occupier was negligent in maintaining their premises. Key factors in determining liability include:

  • Duty of Care: Property owners have a legal obligation to maintain their premises in a safe condition and address potential hazards.
  • Breach of Duty: Liability is often established by showing that the property owner breached their duty of care by neglecting to address known hazards or provide adequate warnings.
  • Causation: It must be proven that the property owner’s negligence directly caused the injuries suffered by the victim

What to Do After a Premises Liability Incident

  1. Prioritize safety: Ensure your safety and the safety of others involved. If possible, move to a safe location away from traffic.
  2. Check for injuries: Assess yourself and others involved for any injuries. If anyone is injured, call emergency services right away.
  3. Contact the authorities: Report the accident to the police, even if it seems minor. They will document the incident and provide an official report, which may be necessary for insurance claims or legal purposes.
  4. Gather information: Collect important details about the accident, such as the names, contact information, and insurance details of all parties involved. Additionally, note the license plate numbers, make/model of the vehicles, and the location and time of the accident.
  5. Document the scene: If it is safe to do so, take photos or videos of the accident scene. Capture any damages to the vehicles, road conditions, traffic signs, and other relevant factors.
  6. Identify witnesses: If there are witnesses present, obtain their contact information. Their statements may be beneficial in supporting your case later on.
  7. Seek medical attention: Even if you do not feel injured right away, it is crucial to get a medical evaluation. Some injuries may not manifest immediately, and a medical professional can properly assess your condition and provide necessary treatment.
  8. Preserve evidence: Keep all documentation related to the accident, including medical records, police reports, insurance correspondence, and receipts for any expenses incurred due to the accident.

Took care of us after our accident. Went above and beyond to check in and make sure we were ok. Great personal touch and service.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Fielding in the past, and I cannot recommend him and his team enough. They're true professionals from intake to close outs, and will make sure a difficult process goes as smoothly as possible. All-around great guy and one heck of an attorney.

Mia

As a fellow Arizona attorney, my interactions with Fielding Law was top notch. Both attorneys and support staff were friendly and helpful. Plus, their office in Tempe is brand new and very cool.

It was great to have Clark and his team in our corner. We were t-boned by someone that ran a red light. However, while we were being taken to the hospital, the other driver told the police that it was our fault. With things not looking good, Clark was able to get our side of the story reported to the police, deal with all the doctors and insurance people and get us a settlement. They went above and beyond what we thought was possible. Can’t imagine dealing with this nightmare without Clark and his team.
