Premises Liability Lawyer Your Injury, Our Fight

Premises Liability Lawyer

Different jurisdictions’ laws at the local, state, and federal levels require property owners to uphold certain duties to protect the safety of individuals who may visit their premises. Property owners don’t only have a responsibility to ensure their premises are reasonably safe for individuals who they expressly invite to visit, but to also minimize the occurrence of unsafe conditions that any potential visitors may face.

Premises liability laws vary by jurisdiction. However, one detail remains constant in personal injury cases like these. Property owners are obligated to keep their homes, office buildings, and parcels of land safe for their customers, residents, and anyone else there on business and any other authorized visitors. Any instance in which an individual suffers injuries or dies because of hazardous, faulty, or otherwise dangerous conditions may warrant filing a premises liability case.

What Are Examples of Premises Liability Cases?

Premises liability is just one subsector of the broader personal injury practice area and not one that every attorney specializes in. Any lawyer you decide to work with must have experience proving liability in premises liability cases to ensure the best potential outcome in your legal matter.

Our Buckingham & Vega Law Firm lawyers are well-versed in handling premises liability cases, including ones in which their clients have been injured in the following types of accidents:

  • Floor cave-ins or ceiling collapses
  • Fires
  • Electrocution or electricity-involved accidents
  • Negligent security
  • Building code violations
  • Animal attacks, including dog bites
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Slips and falls, including falls on sidewalks, downstairs, and from heights
  • Struck-by incidents

Life-threatening injuries or wrongful death can result from a variety of events at no fault of the victim. Adverse outcomes like these can leave individuals hurt in these incidents with permanent disabilities or prematurely dead, which may not only affect their lives but significantly affect their ability to make a financial contribution to their family’s future.

Common Injuries Resulting From Premises Liability Accidents

While not all incidents that occur on someone else’s premises result in someone getting hurt or life-altering injuries, many do. Some of the more common injuries that individuals suffer resulting in their filing of a premises liability claim or lawsuit include:

  • Head or brain injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Neck or spinal cord injuries, which may result in paralysis
  • Burns and associated disfigurement and functional impairments

Individuals who become involved in an accident attributable to property owners’ negligence also often lose their lives, whether immediately following an injury incident or due to complications associated with it later on.
