Fighting for Your Rights in the Local Community for Over 20 Years
Have you suffered an injury because of hazardous conditions found on public property such as a grocery store, office building or amusement park? If so, your injuries may have been caused by negligence on part of the property’s owner. What’s more, your injuries should have been prevented. By law, owners of restaurants, stores, office buildings and other commercial properties are required to maintain a safe, hazard free area for guests and patrons at all times. If you believe your injuries were caused by careless actions, you’re entitled to seek damages under premises liability law.
Premises liability cases are more commonly known as “slip-and-fall” accidents. These accidents typically occur when someone gets injured on a public property due to negligence on part of the owner or management. For example, the owner of a grocery store might neglect to clear dangerous ice from an entranceway, causing a patron to fall and get seriously injured. Other common “slip-and-fall” accidents occur due to falling objects… improper signage… uneven stairwells and broken walkways… empty swimming pools… slippery surfaces… and debris littering common areas.
In addition, injuries due to criminal activity such as an assault, rape, or robbery while on public property can also fall under premises liability law. That’s because the injury could have been caused by negligent security, or unsafe management and maintenance of a building. If this is the case, property owners or managers may be held liable.
