If you are injured on someone else’s property, depending on the circumstances, you could have a claim against the property owner. The typical scenarios are when a person slips and falls, trips and falls, or something falls on the person. If the property owner has Med Pay insurance, that insurance will provide coverage for medical bills up to the Med Pay limit, regardless of fault.
Contrary to what a lot of people think, an injured person is not automatically entitled to compensation from a property owner or the property owner’s insurance for all injuries and/or damages sustained on the property. In order to obtain compensation, an injured person has to be able to prove that the property owner was negligent and that negligence caused the injury.
Negligence here means that the property owner did, or did not do, something that a reasonable person would have, or would not have, done under the same circumstances.
