Injured on Another Person's Property?
A person injured on a property may receive compensation if a property owner is responsible due to negligence. Most accidents are preventable but due to the negligent actions of another, there may be circumstances that allow an injury accident to occur. Inadequate warnings of hazards or the failure make a property safe can lead to premises liability accidents.
Common injuries from premises liability accidents are soft tissue damage, fractures, internal organ damages, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and paralysis, coma or death. A person injured in a property liability accident should contact an
Alpharetta injury attorney to seek legal advice for monetary compensation for damages and injuries. The Williamson Law Firm successfully represents many clients hurt in premises liability cases.
Types of Premises Liability Accidents
People enter onto the property of another for different reasons and under different circumstances. A store or business owner owes a duty of care to customers who are there for commercial reasons. For instance, a grocery store with a wet floor may cause a shopper to suffer a slip and fall accident. Insufficient lighting in a parking garage can be inviting to criminals to engage in assault and other types of attacks on innocent victims. Dogs that are unrestrained or untrained can attack visitors on a property causing severe injuries and a case of premises liability due to negligence. Parties responsible for injuries on a property may be liable to the injury victims for damages including:
- Lost wages
- Medical costs
- Pain and suffering
Most property owners have coverage to insure against premises liability accidents but insurance coverage may not compensate sufficiently for injuries and suffering. Before settling an insurance claim, it is important to speak with an attorney from our law firm to determine if there is additional monetary compensation potentially available. Insurance companies typically attempt to settle a claim for less than it is worth and as quickly as possible.
Part of an insurance settlement may include waiving of rights to pursue additional monetary compensation for injuries from the premises liability accident. Make an appointment today for a consultation with an experienced premises liability lawyer from The Williamson Law Firm for a case review.
