Was Your Accident Related to an Unsafe Property?
Owning land in the United States is one of our most treasured liberties. But property rights also come with responsibilities. Specifically, all property owners (including the government) are responsible for ensuring that their properties are reasonably safe and secure.
Premises liability (also called property owner liability) is an area of law that allows individuals to pursue compensation for injuries sustained as the result of unsafe conditions on private, public or commercial properties. With over two decades of litigation experience and a background in insurance, Douglas V. Stoehr, Attorney at Law, is uniquely suited to represent you in nearly any premises liability lawsuit.
Where and How Were You Injured?
Accidents and injuries can happen anywhere, and some cannot be predicted or prevented. However, property owners do have a responsibility to ensure that their premises are reasonably safe and secure. When unmitigated hazards cause injuries to others, property owners can be held liable.
Some common premises liability scenarios include:
- Slip-and-fall accidents on icy sidewalks or wet floors
- Trips and falls in unlit stairwells
- Accidents involving malfunctioning elevators and escalators
- Assaults and other crimes in parking lots with inadequate security
- Trips and falls on uneven pavement and sidewalks
- Falling tree limbs and due to poor landscaping
- Accidents at amusement parks and other entertainment venues
These are just a handful of seemingly countless examples. If you are unsure whether your injuries were related to unsafe or dangerous premises, call our firm. We would be happy to discuss your case and answer any questions you may have.
