Premises Liability Information for Des Moines, IA

Property owners and managers in Iowa are required to design, construct and maintain their premises in a condition that is safe for workers and the visiting public. This includes homeowners with backyard pools and swing sets, communities who construct parks and playgrounds, retail stores and other private and commercial property.

Winning A Slip-And-Fall Injury Lawsuit Can Be Challenging

If you were injured in a slip-and-fall accident or because of an unsafe condition on a residential, commercial or public property in Iowa, you will face challenges when seeing an insurance settlement for your medical bills, lost earnings and other financial damages. Insurance companies know that juries place more personal responsibility on the part of the injured person than they did 20 or 30 years ago.

Today, winning a fair settlement requires clearly demonstrating that the dangerous condition was known by the property owner or manager and not repaired or sealed off from the public until repairs could be made.

Winning a fair settlement in a premises liability injury or wrongful death case requires:

  • Proving negligence in the design or construction, which created a dangerous condition
  • Proving the property owner failed to safeguard the public or remedy the unsafe condition
  • Proving the condition could not have been avoided by the injured party
  • Proving that the injury resulted in financial damages or pain and suffering
