Negligent Parties Must Be Held Accountable
When someone knowingly doesn’t take care of their property, it can cause others to suffer. A common example is when someone is working through a slip-and-fall case. This can include everything from a grocery store not alerting costumers about a spill on the ground to a business not properly shoveling their walkways. It can also include buildings that have uneven stairs or poor lighting. If they are aware of the problem and don’t fix it, we can hold them accountable.
Dog Bites Cases
Another example of a premises liability case is when a dog bites you. If you are out and about and a dog attacks you, their owner is liable. They are supposed to handle their pet properly. If they know that their dog can get aggressive, they have a responsibility to fix the problem. Even if you walk into someone’s house and this happens, the dog owner can still be found at fault. If you think you have a case, it is crucial to talk to an experienced personal injury attorney.
