We Hold Negligent Property Owners Accountable

A Premises Liability Attorney Can Help You Recover Compensation

- The party responsible for the property created the hazardous condition.
- The party responsible for the property knew about the condition but no steps were taken to correct it.

Slip and Fall Accidents
It’s quite common for people to be injured in falls when visiting other people’s homes or places of business. Slip-and-fall victims can suffer anything from scratches and bruises to nerve and brain injuries. Some common causes of slip-and-fall accidents include:
- Negligent care of a sidewalk or publicly-owned area, such as a pothole in the ground
- Unsafe or narrow stairways
- Torn carpeting, changes in flooring, and wet floors
- Poor lighting or visibility
- Safety code violations
“I was walking through the lobby of the theatre when my feet went right out from under me! I fell and hit my head and had to be taken to the emergency room. It was totally unexpected and it took me a few weeks to get back on my feet. I couldn’t even remember where I was when it happened. Flager & Associates were not only great with my case; they were genuinely interested in my health and recovery. At a time when I really needed help; Flager & Associates was there. My settlement was far higher than I expected and I will be forever grateful. I highly recommend Flager & Associates.”
All of these accidents can happen anywhere – in a shopping mall, a hardware store, a commercial office or someone’s home. Whoever is responsible for the premises is also liable if your injury happens there.
People generally sustain minor injuries when they slip, trip, or fall on someone else’s property. Still, even a minor injury can have a significant impact on your life. Your time may be spent focusing on your injury rather than your work or your family. You may get hit with unexpected medical bills or lost time from work.
Severe injuries occur as well. Such accidents may result in surgeries and physical therapy. In some instances, a slip and fall can cause a person’s death.
Don’t let someone else’s carelessness ruin your life. Take back control. No personal injury is too small to seek compensation for the negligence of the owner of the property. Seek medical treatment after your slip and fall accident. Then, contact Flager & Associates, PC. Our attorneys fight aggressively to get our clients the compensation they deserve.
Security negligence is a term used to describe when a property owner fails to put in place basic security measures, such as lighting or fencing. You may lock or install an alarm in your vehicle, but your safety can be at risk if property owners fail to take reasonable security precautions.
For instance, if someone is assaulted and suffers a severe injury at an apartment complex where violent crime is known to be rampant, and certain measures, such as retaining security guards, were not put into place, a property owner may be negligent.
To hold a property owner accountable in a security negligence case, it must be shown that the owner was able to foresee that some injury would occur as a result of the lax security. To establish this, a court will consider:
- Crimes against both people and property
- Allegations of prior criminal acts in the area
- Police records of reported crimes in the same geographic area
Proving security negligence can require a fair amount of legal acumen. An experienced premises liability lawyer from our firm will be able to investigate your case and hold the responsible property owner accountable.
Swimming Pool Accidents
When the weather gets warm, children and adults alike enjoy playing in swimming pools. Unfortunately, child’s play can turn into a swimming pool accident in an instant through improper supervision, inadequate maintenance, or a variety of other reasons.
Homeowners with pools sometimes fail to take the necessary steps to prevent swimming pool accidents, including maintaining the appropriate depth of water in the pool. When someone dives into a pool that is too shallow, he or she can suffer spinal cord injuries, brain injury, or even drown.
It’s also crucial for pool owners to ensure there are physical barriers around the pool to limit access. Ownership and operation of a swimming pool requires adherence to guidelines regarding supervision, fencing, and covering of unattended pools. Property owners are responsible for providing reasonable and effective barriers to property features that can be considered an attractive nuisance liability.
If you or your child has been injured in a swimming pool accident, you can count on Flager & Associates, PC to aggressively pursue the full compensation allowed under the law.
