You can be compensated for injuries on an owner's property

When you enter a property, it's the responsibility of the owner of that property to make sure you are kept safe. The property should be reasonably maintained, and you shouldn't have to worry about accidents due to damaged walkways or other concerns.

Whether you were an invitee, on the property as a trespasser or were a licensee, you are entitled to some protections when you enter the property. For instance, as an invitee, you were invited onto the property. That means the owner knew you were coming and should have taken reasonable steps to make sure the premises was safe. As a licensee, you enter for your own reasons and are there at the consent of the owner, but a lesser duty of care is due.

If you are a social guest, you are a welcome visitor. The property owner should have taken some steps to maintain the property and be considerate when it comes to your safety.

Finally, as a trespasser, you are on the property without an invitation. There is no implied promise that there have been reasonable steps take to prevent your injury. However, the owner cannot aim to hurt trespassers. The owner should also give reasonable warning if there are hazards on the property.

Our website has more information on what constitutes a hazard and how you can seek compensation if you were injured on another person's property. You, as a victim, have rights that you can exercise. You deserve to have your medical care and other financial needs met while you recover from this injury.
