If you have been injured at a person's house, you may end up with a lot of medical bills. You may also want that person to help pay for all those medical bills, and even for lost wages. However, it's possible that the person isn't going to want to do that and/or their homeowner's insurance won't pay either. That may leave you no option other than to seek help from a personal injury attorney so that you can get money to cover your bills. If you choose to use a personal injury attorney, they will help you figure out if you have a case. There are several things that can go into deciding if you have a good case or not.
What You Were Doing
One of the things that goes into deciding whether or not you have a good case is what you were doing when you were injured. This includes things like whether you were doing things safely and with all due caution, or you were misusing equipment or acting in an unsafe manner. For example, if you were helping someone work on their roof, you would want to make sure that you wore the right kind of footwear. You would also want to make sure that you were careful when you went up and down the ladder and while you were on the roof itself. If you were doing everything appropriately while you were on the roof, but you still slipped and fell, then it is likely that you might have some kind of case. However, if you were fooling around on the roof, not taking the appropriate precautions, and you fell, then you may hold some liability for your injury and you may not have a strong case.
What Kind of Visitor You Were
There are different classes of visitors, and different kinds of visitors have different kinds of protection when it comes liability for accidents while you are there. For example, if you are trespassing on a property and you fall down and break your arm and leg, you will likely not have a case. This is especially true if the property is marked with no trespassing signs. You knew that you weren't supposed to be there, and if you get hurt because you are doing something you shouldn't have been doing, then it's generally your responsibility..
If you got hurt at a person's house, you may have a case against them. A personal injury attorney will be able to tell you if you have a case or not.
