In a premises liability case, the aspect factoring into how the case plays out focuses on a property owner’s negligence. Since property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their property safe, these cases include various types of alleged negligence on the part of the owner. If you have been injured on another’s property and believe you may have a premises liability case, here are four tips to keep in mind.
In many cases handled by Sacramento liability attorneys, inadequate maintenance resulted in a successful case. Whether at a rental property or a manufacturing facility, failure to maintain machinery or warehouses could result in falls or exposure to dangerous chemicals. If this has happened to you, contact a Sacramento CA personal injury law firm such as Travis G. Black & Associates for a consultation.
Similar to inadequate maintenance, defective conditions on the premises can also result in serious injuries. For example, faulty handrails on stairs can lead to falls, while loose ceiling tiles can result in serious head injuries. In these situations, gather as much evidence as possible of these conditions, such as taking photos. By doing so, your Sacramento CA personal injury law firm can use this in court.
In some cases, design flaws are to blame for serious injuries. To prove this, premises liability attorneys often call on expert witnesses to testify, and also use data showing high numbers of injuries related to the design flaw.
Snow and Ice Accidents
When a business or other establishment fails to clear snow and ice from parking lots, sidewalks, stairs, and other places, serious accidents always happen. In most cases, broken bones, back injuries, and traumatic brain injuries occur.
If you have been injured due to a property owner’s negligence, schedule an immediate consultation with experienced and knowledgeable attorneys at Travis G. Black & Associates.
