Thousands are injured in premises liability accidents each year
A premises liability accident occurs when an individual trips, falls, or slips because of dangerous conditions on someone else's property. While property owners are obligated by law to keep their property safe, sometimes they act negligently by failing to identify a potential danger, creating a potential danger, or failing to correct a known danger, allowing hazardous conditions to arise.
Since each case is unique in both circumstance and environment, determining fault in an accident like this is almost never straightforward. You must also be able to prove that someone else's negligence caused your slip and fall accident or premises liability claim as opposed to your own carelessness. A Greene & Schultz Trial Lawyers attorney can help you prove your case, helping you get compensation for injuries caused by:
- Insufficient security
- Lack of handrails
- Defective stairs (indoor or outdoor)
- Poor maintenance
- Poor lighting
- Torn carpeting
- Uneven pavement
- Wet/slippery floors, sidewalks, or pavement
No corporation is too large to be held accountable
Large commercial properties like Wal-Mart are one of the most common locations for accidents, often because the property owners have maintenance and safety policies that were not followed. This can occur because the owner's employees failed to do their jobs, were not properly trained, or were operating under inadequate safety and maintenance policies.
Our firm has successfully tried cases against large companies like Wal-Mart and won many favorable jury verdicts. If you or a loved one was injured or killed by an avoidable accident on someone else's property, contact us immediately to learn more about your rights before your statute of limitations to file a lawsuit runs out.
