When A Business Can Be Sued for Personal Injury

Sometimes people get injured while on the premises of a business. If the injury is the business’s fault, the individual can file a personal injury lawsuit against the business. However, there are other scenarios where a business can be sued, as discussed in this article.

Product Liability

If you are injured by a company’s product that had design defects or not enough safety warnings, you can sue the company for damages. For example, if your pet got sick from expired food from a pet store, you can sue the store. For a product liability case to be valid, you will need to prove that:

  • You used the product as instructed by the manufacturer.
  • The product was defective.
  • You have suffered physical injuries or monetary losses.
  • The product is responsible for the injuries.

Depending on the situation, you can sue several institutions involved in distributing the product, like the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer.

Employee Liability

Legally, a business is responsible for its employees’ actions in the course of work or within the work environment. If an employee has caused you a job-related injury, you can sue the business. For instance, if a company truck hits you and you get injured, the company will be responsible. Note that the business can only be liable for injuries caused while the employee is on the clock.

Premises Liability

Every property owner’s responsibility is to provide a safe environment for people who are legally allowed on their premises. Premises liability holds property owners accountable for injuries that occur within their premises. If an individual gets injured on commercial or residential property, they can sue the property owner for personal injuries.

Commercial Vehicle Accidents

In situations where a commercial vehicle, like a bus or truck, causes an accident in the line of work, the company that owns the vehicle can be held responsible for any damages caused.

However, when an employee is not on a work-related assignment, you cannot sue the business for any accidents caused by that employee.

For a personal injury lawsuit to go through, a lot more is needed than just having physical evidence of harm and documents of your medical bills. You will require a personal injury lawyer to assist you. You can find more information about personal injury law via many online sources.
