Holding Others Accountable for Negligence
Premises liability is a broad term that includes any harm caused to an individual on someone else's property. However, some legal claims are considered premises liability claims when the accident may not have occurred on the physical property. As you can tell, these cases are complicated and extremely tie sensitive.
After suffering a premises liability injury, you have the right to pursue legal action and seek compensation for the damages you have sustained. Our South Jordan premises liability lawyers at Carr | Woodall are here to help you initiate your claim and hold the negligent property owner accountable.

Determining Property Owner Liability in South Jordan
The level of liability a property owner owes a visitor depends on the designation of the visitor. If you are a customer at a grocery store, the store owes you an extremely high duty of care. If you visit a friend's house, the friend will owe you a smaller duty of care. If a trespasser is injured, the owner of the property is potentially not liable. However, even trespassers can recover from certain dangerous conditions created by the owner, like a vicious dog used to protect property.
Delivering Client-Focused Representation
These cases are often very time-sensitive; this is especially true because liability involves a government entity. Evidence is necessary to prosecute your case. Frequently, if you wait too long to seek an attorney, that evidence can be gone. For example, video surveillance might be deleted after a week or two. Unlike many other personal injury law areas, the evidence does not tend to remain for a very long time.
If you have been injured involving a premises liability claim, do not hesitate to consult with Carr Woodall. We can determine whether the landowner owed you a duty of care during the initial consultation and whether that duty was breached. Premises liability is an essential area of personal injury law – it helps landowners take precautions so that more people are not injured due to their negligence. It ensures that innocent people can adequately heal from injuries they have sustained.

- Loss of household services (housekeeping, childcare, etc.)
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of parental companionship and guidance
- Mental anguish
