When a person sustains an injury on an unsafe property, the consequences can be life-changing. Filing a premises liability case can hold the negligent property owner accountable and give the victim the compensation they deserve.

If you were injured due to a property owner’s negligence, you might be wondering what compensation you are entitled to. Below, our personal injury attorneys break down the damages a plaintiff may receive.


If you are looking to recover compensation to help deal with the injuries you sustained, you must prove your case by establishing the following elements:

  • The defendant legally owned, occupied, or leased the property, and they had a duty to ensure the property was in reasonably good and safe condition based on its intended use.
  • The defendant was negligent in the use of the property, and they breached their duty to provide a safe environment.
  • The victim was harmed, which was directly caused by the defendant’s negligence.



You are entitled to reimbursements for doctor’s visits, medications, physical therapy, and other medical treatments you sustained from your injuries.


Lost wages include both past and future wages that you lose while you recover from your injuries.


Though less tangible, these damages cover physical and emotional distress.


In some cases, punitive damages are awarded. The purpose of punitive damages is to punish the negligent party and exceeds simple compensation. This is to dissuade the negligent party and others from conducting similar activities again in the future.

Due to the complexity of premises liability cases, you’ll want the counsel of an experienced attorney. Our team at Huffman & Huffman, PLLC, is ready to fight for you and get you the compensation you deserve.
