Independence Premises Liability Attorney

You should never have to worry about your safety when you go on to somebody else’s property. Unfortunately, there are times when the careless or negligent actions of a property owner or their employees create hazardous situations. If you or a loved one had been injured on another person’s property, contact Peddicord & Townsend LLC today. Our Independence premises liability attorneys will investigate all aspects of what happened in order to secure the compensation you are entitled to.

How do Independence premises liability cases arise?

Premises liability cases center around the failure of property owners or their employees to keep guests and invitees safe. Property owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are free from hazards that could cause others harm. If they cannot remedy a known hazard any reasonable amount of time, they should properly warn guests of the potential hazards (usually with visible warning signs and cordoning off an area). Some of the most common situations that arise that can result in premises liability lawsuits include the following:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Negligent or inadequate security
  • Inadequate property maintenance
  • Restaurant liability
  • Swimming pool injuries
  • Dog and animal bites
  • Retail store liability
  • Children on-premises (attractive nuisance laws)

What are the most common premises liability injuries?

When property owners feel to secure their premises, their guests can sustain a variety of injuries. Our premises liability lawyers commonly help clients who have sustained the following:

  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Open head wounds
  • Concussions
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Whiplash injuries

Some premises injuries may be relatively minor, but that does not mean they will not cause costly medical bills or lost income for victims. For serious injuries, a victim could suffer from lasting disabilities that lead to tremendous medical expenses.

Do private residence owners have a duty to guests?

Private residence owners can also be held responsible for injuries that occur on their property. When a homeowner knows of a hazardous condition on their property, they have a duty to fix it or to properly warn their guests about the dangerous condition. When you are injured on private property, it will be necessary to file a claim with that person’s homeowner’s insurance in order to recover compensation.
