Residential and commercial property owners have a responsibility to keep
their premises reasonably safe for lawful guests, visitors, and customers.
Dangerous or unsafe conditions can lead to serious injuries for unsuspecting
individuals. If you were injured as a result of hazardous conditions on
someone else's property that the property owner caused, was aware
of, or should have been aware of, you may be entitled to financial compensation
to help you cope with your injuries and losses.
Our skilled premises liability lawyers have years of experience helping
injured victims navigate these legal proceedings. We understand the complexities
these types of cases can present, and we can help determine liability
for any harm you suffered. Our
attorneys can assist you with every aspect of your claim from start to finish, working
to answer your questions and address your concerns every step of the way.
If you were injured as a result of unsafe conditions on another’s
property, contact Hare Wynn at (855) 997-9319 to speak with a lawyer
about your case. Your initial consultation is free.
Common Causes of Trip, Slip & Fall Accidents
With some exceptions, including exposure to hazardous chemicals and dog
bites, most premises liability claims fall under the category of trip,
slip, and fall accidents. While slipping or falling may not seem too serious,
a fall can result in severe injuries that require medical attention, including
spinal cord injuries, and more.
Trip, slip, and/or fall accidents may occur due to:
- An accumulation of ice or snow
- Inadequate lighting
- Negligent or insufficient security
- Spilled food or drink
- Torn, raised, or worn carpeting
- Obstructions, such as electrical cords
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Unsafe/unmarked building conditions
If you have been seriously injured due to a trip, slip, fall, or other
accident while visiting a restaurant or retail store, amusement park,
public swimming pool, or other property, the premises liability attorneys
at Hare Wynn can help you understand your legal options. We represent
individuals across the U.S. from offices in Birmingham, AL and Lexington, KY.
Establishing Fault in a Premises Liability Claim
In order to file a premises liability claim, you must first show that the
owner of the property—whether it be a storekeeper, apartment manager,
restaurant owner, or another person—acted negligently in some way.
Our premises liability lawyers understand how to establish that a certain
condition on the property was "unreasonably dangerous" and that
the property owner or manager was aware or should have been aware of the
condition prior to your injury. While individuals have a personal responsibility
for their own safety, property owners also have a duty to keep their premises
safe for others.
Our attorneys understand that you may have uncertain feelings about speaking
to a lawyer about pursuing a premises liability claim. We're here
to help you clearly understand your options and seek the just compensation
you are owed. While financial recovery cannot negate your pain and suffering,
it can help with unexpected medical bills, lost wages, and other losses
you may have suffered. We can evaluate your claim from a legal perspective
and guide you through the process from beginning to end.
