How Were You Injured?
Our premises liability lawyers have successfully advocated on behalf of people who have sustained injuries in a variety of accidents on dangerous property, including:
- Falls from balconies, stairways, roofs and other high places
- Slip-and-fall injuries occurring in nursing homes, shopping centers, office buildings, schools and government buildings
- Shooting accidents and assaults in homes, schools and public parks
- Escalator and elevator accidents
- Dog bites and other animal attacks
- Sexual assaults caused by insufficient security
- Injuries caused by fire, flood, earthquake or other natural disaster (insurance policies may or may not exclude “acts of God”)
- Amusement park accidents involving dangerous rides or other attractions
If a property owner’s negligence resulted in assault or battery — for example, if he or she failed to hire adequate security, install security equipment or light the premises properly — it may be possible to pursue a civil claim for premises liability as well as a criminal complaint against the assailant.
Landlords and business owners must take precautions to ensure that their property is safe. Similarly, government agencies and municipal entities must take care to ensure that public roads, sidewalks and other public properties are safe. Our attorneys are prepared to fight for the compensation you deserve if you are hurt because of a property owner’s negligence.
What If The Property Owner Is A Friend Or Relative?
Injured people sometimes hesitate to consider filing a premises liability claim when an injury took place on the property of a friend or family member. Many do not like the idea of suing a person they know. And yet, the losses and medical expenses are considerable.
In these situations, it is advisable to discuss your options with an experienced premises liability attorney. Please realize that homeowners and business insurance policies exist for the sole purpose of covering injuries to guests, visitors and patrons.
