If you've had an accident on someone's property and need a lawyer...turn to Kimmel Carter.
Owners or possessors of land can be held legally liable for injuries that occur on their premises. People who occupy, control, or are entitled to immediate possession of land owe certain duties to those who are invited onto the premises. Depending on the circumstances, land owners may be required to do such things as: inspect the premises for dangers, warn those invited on the premises of any concealed hazards, and take measures to remedy unsafe conditions.
A land owner is negligent if he or she fails to take the precautions required by law. Premises liability law places responsibility on land owners for such things as:
- Wet floors and tripping hazards that could cause slip and fall accidents
- Disrepair to premises
- Unrestrained animals that could bite visitors
- Faulty equipment, such as elevators and escalators
- Inadequate security
- Unsafe building conditions, such as code violations
Visitors and tenants injured as a result of such negligence may have a claim against the home or business owner. Kimmel Carter handles many personal injury cases. We will aggressively pursue the responsible parties and strive to recover the maximum allowable compensation for your injuries—so you can focus on coping with the consequences of your injury.
