When an accident occurs due to a property owner’s negligence, your injuries should be covered under the homeowner’s insurance or the building owner’s general liability insurance. Because premises liability litigation takes time and expense to litigate, less serious injuries, such as a sprained ankle, will cost more than the amount of the recovery and are seldom pursued.
Please call our law office if you or a loved one has experienced any of the following accidents or injuries:
Serious slip-and-fall accidents — These may be due to a cracked sidewalk, a pool of water on the floor, a gap in flooring on a construction site or an unshoveled front step.
Swimming pool accidents or near drownings — This includes public pools as well as backyard pools at a home.
Assaults — This includes property ranging from hotels and motels to apartment buildings to an ATM that provides or has a security system.
Sexual assaults — This includes hotels and other establishments that may be in an area where other crimes have been committed.
