Were You Injured On Dangerous Private Property? Our Attorneys Can Help.
Accidents and injuries can happen anywhere, but that doesn’t mean they are inevitable or unpreventable. Anyone who owns a property has a legal responsibility to ensure that their premises are safe for visitors and guests. If someone gets injured because of a known hazard that was never adequately addressed, the property owners may be held liable for the victim’s medical bills, lost wages and other expenses.
If you were injured at a store, restaurant or private residence because of property owner negligence, D’Agosto & Howe, LLC, can help you seek accountability and compensation in a premises liability lawsuit. These types of cases can be complex, but we utilize more than 40 years of combined personal injury experience to help you understand and exercise your full range of legal options.
What Kinds Of Accidents Are Considered Premises Liability Matters?
There are countless ways to be injured on private property. Some of the most common examples include:
- Slip-and-fall accidents due to unmarked wet floors in a restaurant or spilled liquids in a grocery store
- Trip-and-fall accidents in department stores caused by poorly placed merchandise or equipment left strewn on the floor
- Elevator and escalator accidents in malls, government buildings and other places open to the public
- Swimming pool accidents at private residences because pool owners failed to maintain the pool and the area around it
- Fires, electric shocks and other serious injuries at apartment buildings because landlords failed to address known hazards in a timely manner
If you want to know whether your accident might be a cause for a premises liability lawsuit, you can reach out to our attorneys to discuss your case for free.
What It Takes To Prove Property Owner Negligence
Here are the four elements that must be proven in a premises liability lawsuit:
- The property owner owed a duty of care to customers or invited guests and that duty of care was breached.
- There was an unreasonably dangerous condition or hazard on the property.
- The property owner knew or should have known that the hazard existed yet failed to address it in a timely manner.
- You were injured by the unaddressed hazard and suffered losses (such as medical bills) as a result.
These elements can be complex in certain cases, but our attorneys will carefully research your accident and help you present the strongest possible argument for why you deserve compensation.
