Our Skilled Attorneys Will Hold Negligent Property Owners Accountable
Types of Premises Liability Accidents
As with most personal injury cases, premises liability is often due to a negligent property owner. In order to pursue a premises liability case based on negligence, we must be able to prove the property owner was negligent. Some instances where a property owner might be negligent include:
- Slip and Fall Accidents: These accidents can occur if someone slips on a wet or oily floor, due to a leaky roof or, more commonly in grocery stores, a product spill. Unsecured cords, rugs, and carpets can also cause injury. Damaged thresholds, floorboards, steps, or sidewalks can also cause someone to slip and fall.
- Elevator/Escalator Accidents: An owner can be held liable if he or she fails to maintain these structures and have them serviced regularly. The property owner can also be held liable if he or she fails to warn of potential known dangers.
- Inadequate Maintenance: If the property owner fails to maintain the property in a safe condition, he or she may be liable for your injuries. This could include a failure to clean spills or repair leaks, and a failure to make necessary repairs to prevent injury.
- Inadequate Security: Property owners may be liable, especially if a lack of security leads to an injury, assault, or theft. This may include a failure to keep parking lots properly lit, failure to repair and maintain locked entrances, and more.
Common Premises Liability Injuries
In many cases, premises liability injuries are less severe, though they may require a visit to the emergency room and time away from work. Common injuries include bruises, scrapes, abrasions, lacerations, sprains, and broken bones.
Catastrophic Cases and Injuries
Some premises liability accidents are much more severe. They can be traumatizing and result in serious, life-threatening injuries, or even death. Catastrophic premises liability accidents may include:
- Gas explosions
- Amusement park accidents
- Animal attacks
- Swimming pool accidents
- Toxic fumes and chemicals
Such catastrophic accidents often result in more serious injuries, including brain injury, spinal cord injury and paralysis, burn injury, and wrongful death. Our attorneys can seek compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and reduced quality of life due to such serious injuries.
Our attorneys believe that negligent property owners should be held responsible for the injuries caused by their negligence.
If the accident resulted in a fatality, we will pursue compensation to cover any outstanding medical bills, funeral expenses, and loss of income. We focus on taking care of as much as we can for you so that you and your family can focus on healing.
