Have you been injured on someone else’s property? Property owners have certain obligations under city, state and federal laws. Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents can lead to extremely serious injuries for victims. Whether commercial or private, property owners will try any number of things in order to avoid responsibility for the harm that has come to you.
Property owners have an obligation to keep their land and the buildings on top of it safe and maintain reasonable standards of care in protecting their guests or tenants from injury. Many challenges exist in proving property owners responsible for the injuries sustained by victims on their property.
It is important to contact an attorney so that the proper steps are taken to secure your claim against the property owner. At Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, we have the experience and resources to immediately devote the attention needed no matter what the circumstances of your accident are. With every case we handle, we thoroughly investigate the circumstances that led to your accident and work diligently to determine the liability of all the negligent parties.
Premises liability can apply to a variety of accidents that may occur on different types of property, including:
- Sidewalk falls
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Worn or raised carpet and defective flooring
- Elevator accidents
- Defective building design
- Negligent security
- Fire hazards
- Lead paint exposure
- Defective stairs
- Roadway defects
- Snow and Ice conditions
If you are injured on government or municipality property, your case is governed by strict filing requirements and a shorter statute of limitations. Making a claim against a municipality can be more difficult than suing a private property owner so it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Any delay may reduce or eliminate any chance of recovery.
If you or a loved one was injured on someone else’s property, the lawyers at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP can help. We have what it takes to assess your case intelligently and to advise you as to your best course of action. We are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
