Injuries sometimes happen, but when they happen on someone else’s property, due to a hazardous condition, this is known as “premises liability.” If you are hurt due to the negligence of a company or other property owner, you can seek legal retribution and compensation for your injuries. Privately-owned facilities, including shopping malls and apartment complexes, along with public areas like city sidewalks and parks, are supposed to be safe and enjoyable for guests and residents. However, sometimes things aren’t as they should be, and you come across a dangerous situation that leads to your injury.
There are many different circumstances that can contribute to your harm, or the harm of your family, and Scire Law is here to get justice for your suffering. You should not have to deal with the personal, psychological, or financial consequences of an injury that was caused by someone else. Premises liability may cover things like:
- Slippery floors, stairs, and walkways
- Faulty construction
- Chemical or gas leaks
- Falling debris
- Dog bites
- Robbery or assault
- Fires and floods
Inadequate maintenance, defective materials, and other unsafe conditions may lead to your harm, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.
