We handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, so you will pay no fees unless you are compensated.
Identifying Responsibility for Your Injuries
Whether a piece of property is open to the general public or you are specifically invited there by the owner, he or she has certain responsibilities to protect your safety. Property owners are expected to know their property better than anyone else, and be aware of possible hazards, even if they are not obvious to an outsider.
We can help you if you have been injured in any circumstances caused by the negligence of a property owner, including:
- Slip and fall incidents: When property owners know or reasonably should know of slippery conditions on their property — indoors or outdoors — they are responsible for preventing slip and fall incidents by fixing the problem or giving visitors fair warning.
- Negligent security: If you’ve been assaulted, sexually assaulted, robbed or otherwise attacked on someone else’s property, the property owner may be responsible for failure to take reasonable security measures such as installing proper lighting, providing effective door locks, installing a security camera system and/or hiring security guards.
- Animal attacks: People who keep dogs and other animals on their property are responsible for preventing attacks on visitors. The responsible person’s insurance may be liable for animal attacks even if they do not occur directly on the person’s property (for example, if a dog escapes from a fenced area and bites a passerby, the dog’s owner may still be held legally responsible for any injuries caused by the attack).
Attorney Clinton Paris has extensive experience in the insurance industry and can help you pursue the maximum compensation to which you are legally entitled.
