Good morning. Yes, if a person was hurt/injured on the premises and it can be shown that the building was at fault, they could file a lawsuit and sue, for damages suffered. Now, a settlement typically happens when the parties want to avoid trial and can resolve this on their own, so an offer could be made, by either party, to resolve this, if they desire.

how much of settlement could i expect if out of work for 15 months,because of injury on job.
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 10 months ago

Every situation is different. It depends on the extent of the injuries, medical bills, etc. Now, if this was on the job you could have a workers compensation claim and sue the employer. You must speak with an attorney, who can look into the facts and see how strong of a case you have.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
