Injured on Someone's Property? You May Have a Premises Liability Case
Under Utah's premises liability rules, a property owner can be held responsible for injuries to visitors. It does not matter if those injuries were intentional or unintentional. Property owners are liable if they fail to guard or warn visitors of a dangerous structure, activity, or area on their property.
Individuals do not automatically have a premises liability case just because they were injured at someone's business or home. For a premises liability claim to advance, the injured party must show the property owner (or employees of the owner) created dangerous conditions or knew about them without properly warning and protecting people.

Don't Wait Too Long Utah's Statue of Limitations
In the state of Utah, you have four years from the date of the incident to pursue a premises liability or personal injury claim. When it comes to gathering compelling facts to support your case, it is better to act sooner than later. Photos and videos can be more difficult to gather as months and years pass. Eyewitness accounts won't be as fresh if you wait too long before filing a claim.
Protect Yourself If You've Been Injured
Suffering an injury can be disorientating. You may not be able to think clearly, even a few days after your injury. During this time, the property owner and their insurance company may try to make a deal with you or deny that you have a claim at all.
Here are some steps you can take to protect yourself, even if it's been a few days after your accident.
Seek Medical Attention
Some victims may avoid visiting a doctor because they don't see any immediate injuries. You should visit a doctor after your accident, even if it's been a few days since the incident. Medical records can be used as evidence that you sustained an injury in an unsafe environment.
Don't Talk About Your Case
The property owner or their attorney may try to get a written or recorded statement from you about the incident. Do not go on record with anyone about the accident. Resist a settlement if one is offered. It is likely an insufficient offering for the injured you suffered.
