What is Premises Liability Law?
Premises liability law encompasses the legal framework that holds individuals responsible for injuries sustained by those present on their property or premises. Instances involving personal injuries may encompass slip-and-fall accidents, harm resulting from insufficient maintenance, unaddressed hazardous conditions, a lack of warnings, or injuries arising from inadequate security measures on the property.
We Hold Negligent Property Owners Accountable
Our premises liability practice includes:
Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents are very common, especially in grocery stores and retailers such as Wal-Mart and Target. They can also happen in hotels and motels. Guests in hotels can be injured or killed by falling over railings and balconies as well.
Injuries from premises liability accidents can include brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, joint injuries, back and neck injuries, lacerations, broken bones, and amputations. The worst accidents can cause wrongful death.
We work with medical experts, including radiologists, surgeons, pain management doctors, and chiropractors, to calculate your past and future medical needs. We may also work with life-care planners and economists to consider lost income and additional financial needs.
If you or a family member has been injured on another party’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. It is important to speak with a Navarre premises liability lawyer as soon as possible so we can gather evidence.
