Premises accidents happen all the time. Unfortunately, it can sometimes be difficult to prove a property owner’s liability. This might be a difficult argument to make, so hiring a personal injury lawyer may be helpful. For more than 15 years we have represented victims with a range of injuries resulting from premises accidents.
Three common forms of premises accidents:
Slip and Falls: These accidents commonly result in injuries like back conditions that can dramatically change a victim’s life. A recently passed bill makes it the victim’s responsibility to prove that the condition that caused their fall was known to the property owner and that there was sufficient time for the problem to be remedied.
Swimming Pool Accidents: These accidents can ruin lives with paralysis and other injuries or even result in a wrongful death by drowning. If you or a loved one has been affected by someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible for compensation. This compensation could cover medical expenses, lost wages, and even funeral costs.
Animal Bites: Incredibly common, these accidents can cause disfiguring scars, loss of fine motor skills, or even death. Any animal attack can be emotionally traumatizing if the victim feared for his or her life. If you are wondering if you are eligible for compensation, here are a few scenarios: attacks by unleashed dogs, domestic snake attacks, attacks caused by improperly secured exhibits or cages.
If you have been injured by an animal, we can assist in the following areas:
- filing the appropriate paperwork
- coverage for your medical bills, deductibles and co-pays
- damage to your personal belongings
- workers compensation and lost wages
