Injuries Caused By Unsafe Premises
Property owners and managers of various properties open to the public must keep their premises free of hazardous conditions. If a dangerous condition exists, the owner must set out clearly visible warning sites and fix the dangerous condition as soon as possible. Private property owners may be exempt from liability if someone is not lawfully on their property and sustains injuries.
Proving negligence in premises liability claims can be too complicated without the help of an experienced premises liability attorney. Proving injury with medical records is straightforward. A successful claim will also require proof the owner or manager of the property knew about the unsafe condition but did nothing to repair it or notify those who they knew would be on the property. Proof that the property owner’s negligence was the direct cause of the injuries is also required.
At Michael J. Aviles & Associates LLC, our attorneys provide skilled negotiation and intelligent litigation to help our clients get the monetary compensation they need following an accident caused by a property owner’s negligence.
We Hold Property Owners Accountable In Premises Liability Claims
Slip-and-fall accidents can cause severe and life-changing injuries. They can happen in a grocery store or a restaurant takeout counter, a construction site, airport or even on the way to your doctor’s office. But slip- or trip-and-fall injuries are not the only type of injuries arising under premises liability laws. There are myriad causes of premises liability injuries, including:
- Oil and other liquid spills
- Uneven floors or unsafe doorways
- Sidewalk or parking lot cracks
- Poor lighting and lack of security
- Unmaintained stairways, storage clutter and unevenly stacked products
- Unhygienic counters
Serious injuries can be the result and when they do, we are the law firm to contact to pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost wages if you have to take time off work, future wages when you are unable to return to work, and for pain and suffering.
We are selective about the cases we work on because we are serious about devoting our time and energy to each case we do select. Call Michael J.
