Holding Property Owners Accountable After A Serious Injury
At Van Blois & Associates, our lawyers have been representing persons injured by unsafe premise conditions for more than 40 years. We have the knowledge, experience, expertise and ability to prove negligence and make a recovery for persons injured by the fault of property owners and managers.
Property owners are legally responsible to maintain their property in a safe condition. When someone is injured on public property, commercial property or private property because of a dangerous or defective condition or failure to keep the property in a safe condition, the property owner and manager may be held liable. In order to win a premises liability case, the injured person must prove that the property owner, manager or tenant had the duty to keep the property safe, had knowledge of or should have known of the unsafe condition and did not correct or eliminate the unsafe condition. Often accident reconstruction experts, architects and safety engineers are required to successfully prove premises liability.
What Situations Can Result In A Premises Liability Case?
Premises liability can cause serious injuries in a variety of ways. Some of the types of premises liability cases we have successfully pursued include:
- Slip and falls
- Defects in stairways and buildings
- Inadequate lighting
- Negligently maintained heaters and furnaces
- Objects on store floors
- Inadequate security
- Unsafe amusement park rides
- Wet and slick surfaces in stores and restaurants
- Tripping hazards
- Deadly mine shaft in abandoned mine
- Severe dog bite injuries
- Dog attacks
As with any personal injury claim, it is important to hire lawyers who understand what it takes to develop the evidence and make a powerful claim. At Van Blois & Associates, we have made it our mission to help people through these difficult times.
