Have you been injured due to a defect on someone’s property? It’s time to call an aggressive premises accident attorney.
If you were injured on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to financial compensation. The law refers to these cases as “premises liability,” and holds property owners responsible for maintaining reasonably safe conditions on their properties. This applies to stores, restaurants, parking lots, private properties, and more.
Property owners are not automatically responsible for ALL accidents that may take place on their premises. Instead, they are only liable for accidents that they should have reasonably prevented.
So How Can You Tell If You Have a Case?
Your best move is to contact an experienced premises accident attorney such as Perlmutter & Pourshalimi. We can review the facts of your case to determine if the property owner is liable. Establishing liability will require evidence showing that:
- A hazard existed on the property. This hazard was not open and obvious such that a reasonably careful person would have been able to notice it and avoid injury
- The property owner was negligent because they knew about the hazard (or should have known about it had they been regularly inspecting their property) and yet did not take steps to protect visitors
Common Types of Premises Accidents
Most premises accidents are slip and fall or trip and fall accidents, in which some kind of hazard such as a wet floor, a loose carpet, or an unpainted curb causes a visitor to suffer a fall. However, many other types of hazards can cause falls, lacerations, head injuries, chemical exposure injuries, and other types of harm. Some common examples include:
- Falling objects
- Electrical hazards
- Broken furniture
- Inadequate lighting
- Unsafe railings
- And more
Don’t Make a Mistake That Could Cost You Thousands
If you were injured at a store, restaurant, hotel, or other commercial property, the property owner is highly likely to want to settle your complaint right away, before the incident has a chance to hurt their reputation. However, it is never in your best interests to accept any kind of compensation for your injuries without first discussing the matter with a premises accident lawyer. At Perlmutter & Pourshalimi, we can help you understand the true value of your case, which will prevent you from accidentally accepting any unfairly low settlement offers.
We have experience handling back injuries, head injuries, and other types of injuries commonly resulting from premises accidents, and we will not overlook any possible damages related to these injuries. Instead we will seek to maximize your compensation for:
- Current and future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
