Your Right To Compensation
People who have been injured as a result of a slip-and-fall accident, assault or dangerous property condition may suffer serious or fatal injuries. For plaintiffs to recover compensation for their injuries, they must establish that the property owner was negligent.
Not all property accidents are the result of negligence. A plaintiff must establish that the property owner failed to take appropriate steps to prevent others from harm. In the context of a premises liability claim, there are a variety of ways that a property owner may have been negligent. You will need an experienced and dedicated personal injury attorney who is prepared to investigate the cause of your accident and identify evidence that may establish the liability of the property owner:
- If you were injured in a slip-and-fall accident, did the property owner fail to exercise reasonable care? Did he or she fail to properly address wet or slippery conditions, objects that were obstructing a visitor’s walkway or other serious dangers?
- If you were assaulted or otherwise injured at a bar, concert or event, did the property owner fail to take adequate security measures?
- If you were injured in a balcony fall or collapsed porch due to deck defects, was it due to the property owner’s negligence?
- If you were injured by a dangerous property condition, did the property owner fail to take appropriate actions that may have prevented your accident?
