Helping Slip-and-Fall Accident Victims
It is the duty of a property owner to maintain a safe environment and protect visitors from potential harm. According to the laws of premises liability, property owners may be held liable if someone is injured on the property because of a spill, poor lighting, negligent security, or other hazards. If the victim files a successful premises liability claim, he or she can recover financial compensation for injury-related expenses. The Spanish- and Russian-speaking premises liability attorneys of Vlasac & Shmaruk, LLC, serving Pennsylvania and New Jersey, encourage victims to contact our law firm and schedule a free consultation today.
About Premises Liability
Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises reasonably safe and warn visitors of potential hazards. Should they fail to do so, and someone injures him or herself on the property, the owner is legally responsible for compensating the victim for injury-related expenses. These can include medical bills, loss of income or earning capacity while injured, and pain and suffering.
Accidents and Injuries
Slip-and-fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability accident; others include poor security that leads to an act of violence, animal attacks, and drowning accidents. Slip-and-fall and other accidents can occur in the workplace, on commercial or residential property, and on public or government-owned land. Victims may suffer devastating injuries, ranging from fractures and burns to catastrophic brain and spinal cord injuries. The most devastating premises liability accidents end in wrongful death.
How Our Premises Liability Attorneys Can Help
Slip-and-fall and other premises liability accidents may cause debilitating injuries that require extensive medical treatment and require the victim to take time off of work without pay. The expenses incurred by a premises liability accident can add up, but our attorneys help victims seek financial relief from the property owner that is legally responsible for the accident.
If you or a loved one has been injured on someone else’s property and wish to take legal action, our premises liability attorneys will put together a claim proving that:
- You took reasonable care to avoid being injured.
- The injury occurred on the defendant’s property.
- The defendant should have known about the hazard (e.g., a spill, poor lighting, or other obstacles) but were negligent in their failure to address the hazard.
- You incurred expenses as the result of your injury.
