If you are injured on a rental property such as in an apartment complex, you will need to determine who the landlord is. Landlords have the responsibility of maintaining a safe premises for anyone to be on.
When you are not injured on a residential property, it can become difficult to determine who the property owner is. For example, if you were injured in a retail store, you will need to notify the store management before you leave. However, you may have to bring a lawsuit against the company itself, which can be very difficult.
If you were injured on municipal property, you will need to bring a lawsuit against the municipality, which requires you to file a notice of claim. This simply notifies the town or city that you were injured and you intend to bring a lawsuit against them for negligence.
