Overview of Premises Liability Laws in Tennessee
Property owners have a legal duty to maintain their spaces in reasonably safe condition and free from foreseeable hazards. When they fail to do so and their carelessness causes an accident, an injured victim can recover monetary damages for the losses that result. A property owner, business, or other entity that has control over the premises may breach the duty of care by:
- Failing to clean up spills or debris;
- Not securing loose handrails on staircases, balconies, or ramps;
- Neglecting to install proper lighting;
- Failure to implement appropriate security measure in areas prone to criminal activity;
- Not maintaining swimming pool, hot tub, and spa equipment;
- Negligence with sanitation in kitchens and food preparation areas;
- Refusal to fix loose wiring; and
- Many others.
Seeking Compensation for Your Losses
Tennessee property owners carry liability insurance to cover their losses in accidents, so the first step in recovering monetary damages is filing an insurance claim. However, there is more to the process than filling out forms. An insurer will try to protect its own financial interests by making a lowball counteroffer or denying your claim. If the insurance company refuses to pay a sufficient amount, you will need to take your case to court to get compensation for medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Our Pigeon Forge premises liability lawyers at Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette will tackle all essential tasks to protect your rights, including:
- Gathering evidence;
- Completing and submitting insurance forms, along with supporting evidence;
- Discussing settlement options with the insurance company; and
- Filing a lawsuit in court and taking your case to trial.
