Common Causes of Mt. Juliet Premises Liability Accidents

Were you Visiting Lawfully?

In Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, the injured person must be a lawful visitor to have a premises liability claim. Trespassers are on the property illegally, so no matter how severe the injury is or how they sustained it, they have no case.

Since trespassers are on the property illegally, the property owner does not owe them a duty of care. Lawful visitors are owed a duty of care; if injured, they may pursue a claim. Here are some examples of legal visitors.

  • Invited guests
  • Service people
  • Customers
  • Invitees
  • Clients

Some people might be on a property legally without the property owner’s knowledge. These could be a meter reader or someone checking gas or water lines.

Damages in a Premise Liability Case

If you were injured and are involved in a premises liability case, you may be entitled to economic and non-economic damages. Some examples of economic damages are:

  • Emergency room visit bills
  • Ambulance fees
  • Bills for medical treatments
  • Physical therapy
  • Prescription medications
  • Travel expenses
  • Occupational therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Medical equipment

Non-economic damages include things like:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Anxiety and mental anguish
  • Emotional Distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium

These lists are far from exhaustive. Damages add up quickly and can overwhelm the victim and their loved ones. A premise liability attorney can negotiate with insurance companies so that the financial burden your injury has caused is a thing of the past.

What is Shared Fault?

Tennessee is a shared fault state. There is a modified comparative negligence rule in place. According to this rule, the plaintiff can be assigned some fault in an accident. The percentage of blame assigned to the plaintiff will determine how much they will be entitled to in a settlement claim.

If the plaintiff is considered 5% at fault and the damages came to a total of $100,000, then the property owner’s insurance would be responsible for the remaining $95,000. If the plaintiff was found 50% or more accountable because of irresponsible actions on their part, then they are not entitled to compensation.
