Did Property Owner Negligence Cause Your Injuries?
Premises liability requires evidence of serious injury, such as a bone fracture, neck injury, or scarring. If you fell and injured nothing but your pride, there is no claim. However, if you were assaulted or otherwise traumatized, you may be entitled to compensation for emotional distress in addition to any physical injuries.
Our experienced premises liability attorney is skilled at uncovering the property owner’s carelessness or disregard for safety. To collect damages, you must show that there was a dangerous condition and that the owner or manager of the property had opportunity to correct it or warn visitors. Did the owner create the hazard or ignore complaints? Did the owner fail to provide adequate security or supervision? Would the dangerous condition have been discovered through regular upkeep or inspection?
Prompt And Thorough Investigation
It is important to contact a skilled attorney as soon as possible. The attorneys at Rue Law Firm take quick action to preserve evidence before the property owner covers up the problem, and to talk to witnesses. They research prior complaints, code violations or lawsuits against the property owner to see if there is a pattern of disregard for safety. They also work closely with clients and medical professionals to document your claim for damages, and they will stand up to property owners and their insurance companies to get the compensation you deserve.
