What Is Premises Liability?
Gas station injuries are a subset of premises liability. When you invite someone onto your property, you assume a duty of care for their safety. If there’s a safety hazard and they get hurt, you could become liable.
Of course, it’s not always straightforward. There are exceptions and limitations to your liability. For example, if you put up an obvious warning sign about a hazard, like a wet floor sign, and it’s ignored, the injured party could be the negligent one.
Arizona is also unusual because it’s one of the few states with pure comparative negligence. Even if someone was mostly at fault, they could still file a claim. Even if you feel you contributed to your gas station injury, speak with a lawyer. You could still receive compensation.

Who do You Sue for a Gas Station Injury?
It depends on how you were injured, but the most likely party is the gas station owner. Property owners are required to keep their property in good repair so that accidents don’t happen. They’re also required to warn the public about hazards, like a wet floor, so that they can avoid them.
If a criminal injured you at a gas station, you may be able to sue the criminal as well as the property owner. Your lawyer’s investigation will turn up all the possible parties and weigh which ones are the most responsible and the most likely to have money to cover your needs.
Other third parties could be involved, like another driver, or even the police. An alleged criminal in Florida received incredible third-degree burns at a gas station while filling his motorcycle tank. The police fired a taser and ignited spilled gas. But state laws differ, and your attorney can identify if any third parties can also be held liable fory our injury in Arizona.
How Our Gas Station Injury Lawyers Can Help You
First, our lawyers can tell you if you have a case or not. If your injury was minor, small claims court might be your best bet. If your case is more expensive than the limits of small claims, we can help you pursue an insurance claim or a lawsuit against the responsible parties.
While you recover from your injuries, we will investigate your case and build a strong claim for the insurance company to consider. Your lawyer will negotiate on your behalf for the best possible settlement package possible in your circumstances.
If the insurance company won’t pay your legitimate claim, we’re not afraid to go after them in court. We prepare every case as if it could go to litigation. It’s not just good practice, but it often makes compensation offers larger when the other side sees that we’re serious.
