Premises Liability Premises Liability is a huge area of law which falls under the category of Personal Injury. If you are injured while on another person's property due to the negligence of the owner or property manager, you may have a premises liability case. Slips, trips and falls and dog bite injuries are also under the category of premises liability law, but so are many other types of injuries not mentioned under those categories on our site.
Property owners have a legal duty to keep their buildings and surrounding premises in reasonably safe condition. Under the law, grocery stores must clean up spills quickly, commercial buildings must fix stairs and railings that are damaged or defective, and shopping malls must provide adequate security for customers.
If you receive an injury in an unsafe building or structure, you deserve the compensation for the harm caused to you. Similarly, if you are attacked because of negligent security in a building or parking garage, you may be entitled to receive monetary damages.
Improperly stacked inventory or boxes of products may fall and injure a customer. This type of incident due to carelessness frequently occurs in the large department stores, home improvement stores, and food markets.
If you have received an injury because of the carelessness, negligence or recklessness of a property owner or manager, call us for a consultation before you speak to a claims adjuster or give a recorded statement to the insurance company.
We get countless calls from honest people who have received injuries as a result of this type of incident and who have tried to settle directly with the insurance company, expecting fair treatment. Don't hold your breath! Envision the claims adjusters “slapping high fives” when you succumb to this request. Usually, the insurance adjuster will take a statement attempting to gain information to assist in defending the property owner. Often, the questions they ask you will be designed to elicit information which will help them to pay you little to nothing for your injuries. Many times, clients have told us that the adjuster promised them that if they gave a statement, all of their medical bills would be paid. This is rarely, if ever, the truth until an attorney gets involved.
Premises liability cases are especially challenging and often complicated to prove. Medical expenses incurred because of the injuries may be substantial, depending on the severity of the injury. When the victim of an accident has no health insurance, the medical bills can cause financial catastrophe and bankruptcy. For successful legal representation, it is imperative that there is a thorough understanding of the always-evolving and information-specific laws regarding the various and numerous incidents that result in premises liability.

Work Related Injury
Construction workers have one of the most dangerous occupations, with thousands of people killed on job sites every year and many more receiving injuries.
Some of the most common construction accidents involve scaffolds or other types of lifts. These accidents can be severe and usually result from scaffolding falls or from plummeting objects that injure workers below.
Unfortunately, lawsuits involving injured construction workers are often harder to handle than other injury cases. An injury or death at a construction site includes the acts of many workers employed by different companies, each of whom is passing off the blame and responsibility to someone else.
The question of liability can depend on whether a party is the property owner, the general contractor, the subcontractor, or someone else. Because of these complexities, it is vital to have a lawyer involved in a construction injury case ASAP.
