Premises Liability

Premises Liability

When you enter a business or are on a property, you expect the environment to be safe. However, this is not always the case as many preventable accidents occur on a daily basis in businesses and on government property across the country.

Many serious injuries occur when people are inside of a business or on other’s people property.

What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is when an accident occurs on someone else’s property, in which the property owner or business was negligent in its cause. That is they did not take due care to correct a condition they know or should have known about.

For example, some businesses or properties leave floors wet with no warning sign, have objects fall down, or have other unsafe hazards. It may be a grocery store leaving a floor wet (this may also be known as a slip and fall case), a furniture store with a wall that falls down, or a playground with unsafe conditions.

When accidents occur in these types of situations, victims can make premises liability claims. But businesses and government agencies often don’t want to pay victims of accidents that could have been prevented.

This is why victims of these types of accidents should hire an experienced premises liability lawyer.

Rightful Compensation For the Seriously Injured

Premises liability law gives the wrongfully injured the recourse to recover the substantial injuries and damages that can occur in an accident. If you or a loved one have suffered a serious injury such as broken bones, scarring, traumatic brain injury, an injury requiring surgery, or other catastrophic injuries as a result of a property or business owner failing to sufficiently maintain a safe environment, you need an experienced premises liability lawyer.

Our lawyers fight for the full range of damages including medical bills, future medical needs, future financial considerations, lost wages, and compensatory damages for the pain and suffering of premises liability accident victims.

The law is on your side if the business or building owner knew there was a dangerous condition prior to your accident and did nothing to fix it. In the most tragic of incidents, our lawyers represent the deceased victim’s family in a wrongful death action. Our lawyers also handle government liability cases.
