Premises Liability Claims Can Happen Anywhere

People are catastrophically injured every day because a business, home or property owner fails to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition. I assist people who have been severely injured on someone else’s property because of negligence.

I have successfully handled premises liability claims involving slip and falls on transitory foreign substance in supermarkets, falls on stairs, over parking bumpers, and through attics. Additionally, I have helped clients receive compensation for injuries related to criminal acts, such as battery on another’s property.

Injuries sustained in a fall can be quite devastating. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has published research on the prevalence of injuries and even death secondary to falls. According to the CDC, falls can be prevented if property owners keep their property safe from hazards and properly maintained.

Over the years, I have seen good people suffer broken bones, fractured spines, back, neck and head injuries and even death as a result of fall down accident. Falls result in upwards of 50,000 deaths each year and are a leading cause of brain injuries throughout the world.

People who have been injured because of a trip, slip and fall may have a claim for damages if the owner, renter, or person in control of the property was careless or negligent in upkeep and maintenance. This area of tort law is called premises liability.

Experienced Indiana Premises Liability Attorney

A slip or a fall in a business or the outside of a business property, on public property and in a private residence can be caused by the owners or tenants failure to properly maintain the premises or their failure to warn the guest of the potential dangerous condition.

Dangers can be caused by a whole host of issues, but here are a few.

  • Improper construction of stairs and handrails

  • Improper lighting

  • Allowing spills and other hazards to remain on the floor

  • Failing to warn customers, guests and patrons of a hazard (wet floor sign)

If a property owner or renter knew of the danger and didn’t correct the problem and didn’t warn people about the issue, he should be responsible for any injuries that are a result of a fall. Furthermore, a business owner may be responsible for injuries related to a fall if they didnt know of the problem but would have discovered the issue if its employees performed reasonable and periodic inspections of the property. If you or someone that you love has been injured in a Central Florida slip and fall matter, give me a call and I will be more than happy to discuss the facts and circumstances around your claim.
