It is very common for people to be injured on someone else’s property. They may fall down someone’s stairs, get hurt in a swimming pool accident or be a victim of an assault due to negligent security, for example.

Your injuries could have been a result of a property owner’s failure to maintain their property’s overall safety.

Process Of Filing A Lawsuit If You Are Injured On Someone Else’s Property In Iowa

Several elements typically need to be clearly established to prove that a property owner was responsible for causing your harm. These include:

  • How the victim entered the property
  • The use of a property
  • Known issues with a property
  • Foreseeability of an accident because of issues
  • Responsibility of the owner to maintain their property
  • Failure to care for the property, which has led to your injuries

You will need to provide evidence showing how your life was impacted by your injuries. A medical report can demonstrate what kind of injuries you suffered and whether they have led to emotional and mental anguish or permanent disabilities. You will also need to provide evidence of your financial losses.
