Fairfield Personal Injury Law Firm: Premises Liability

Video Transcript:

Hi, I’m Ben Scott from the Barnett and Bennett, law firm and I want to answer a question today that is one of the most common questions people have when they go and see a personal injury attorney. And, that question is do I have a case? Now, although every case is different and sometimes there are a lot of questions to answer to figure out if there’s a case or not, most of the time there arejust two simple questions. The first is did somebody do something wrong and the second is did you get hurt because of that? Now some people will come in and say they got hurt and so they should get paid because they were hurt, but the law says you can’t recover money from somebody just because you happen to get hurt. It’s tragic and it’s sad and nobody wants to deal with that, but the loss of only says that if somebody actually did something wrong and caused that harm only then can you recover something from that. And, if and of course the next question we have to answer is you know did you really get hurt? Sometimes, we see people that do things that are just ridiculous or unsafe or stupid, but unless that conduct actually harmed you in any way there’s not much of a case there. And so if you have been hurt because somebody else did something wrong then  go and see an attorney to find out there’s something that can be done to help.
