Mercer County Premises Liability Attorney

Premises liability cases arise when a person is injured on someone else’s property due to a dangerous condition that the owner knew about or should have known about, yet failed to warn the guest or remediate the dangerous condition. Premises liability cases frequently happen in places of business, neighbor’s houses, or on public property. When it comes to premises liability cases, insurance companies are almost always involved.

Insurance companies

To some people it is a relief to hear that insurance companies handle these claims because they would rather take a check from an insurance company than from a neighbor or family member who would have to pay for the claim out of his or her own pocket. For others who have experience in settling claims with insurance companies in the past, the thought of fighting with insurance companies to secure a fair settlement can be overwhelming and stressful. Our Mercer County premises liability attorneys recommend consulting a premises liability attorney before communicating directly with insurance companies.
