Compensation For Premises Liability Injuries
Slip, trip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of premises liability accidents that can occur. When the owner or manager of a business establishment neglects to keep the property safe for patrons and you or a loved one gets hurt as a result, you may have a claim for compensation.
Premises liability can also result from other examples of negligence, including dog bites from uncontrolled dogs, poorly maintained facilities such as a swimming pool that permits small children to access and negligent or inadequate security in bars or other businesses.
