Personal Injury Attorneys
An area of personal injury law which involves accidents due to unsafe conditions is called premises liability. Property owners are held responsible for injuries due to falls on their property if he dangerous conditions were or should have been known about. These can include something as little as a puddle in an aisle at a store or as permanent as something like a dangerous pot hole in a parking lot.
A fall can often be serious. Even a simple trip and fall can lead to broken bones, head injuries, chipped teeth and worse.
There are 4 typical types of personal injury falls:
If property management, a store owner, or a property owner are negligent in how they maintain their property, you should not have to suffer the consequences alone. Falls and other injuries can occur in many places. Some of the most common sites of injuries include:
Stores, restaurants and offices have a responsibility to keep their patrons safe from dangerous conditions. Anything from a puddle on the floor to spilt merchandise can lead to a serious slip and fall.
There are many potentially dangerous elements at large apartment complexes. Many complexes have pools, playground equipment and other recreational equipment. Injuries can easily happen if playgrounds and pools are not maintained well.
Injuries can happen in yards and playgrounds of friends and neighbors, but many avoidable injuries happen from deck collapses. A deck can collapse for a number of reasons: it was not built correctly, it was built using sub-par materials or in was not maintained properly.
Sadly many pool injuries and deaths involve children. Pools are considered attractive nuisances and it is the responsibility of the pool owner to keep children out of the area. Pool injuries can also occur if the filter or pump malfunctions and the suction traps a swimmer underwater.
