Common Injury Claims on Premises
Sometimes people are injured while using recreational lands and want to know who is responsible. Washington has a recreational immunity statute protecting landowners from liability for natural conditions on their land, which can make it difficult if not impossible to establish liability in cases where the person injured was using truly recreational lands. On most other privately owned land, individuals may bring claims for slip or trip and fall injuries as a result of another’s failure to maintain sidewalks, negligent removal of snow/ice, creation of trip hazards upon store premises, etc. Failing to warn of dangerous conditions like shallow pools, missing handrails, etc. can also support holding an owner or occupant responsible for an injury. Contact our lawyers if you or a loved one suffered an injury upon another person’s land/premises.
What we need to prove
