Regardless of the nature of the accident, whether it was a building code violation or slip and fall, injuries sustained can often be inconvenient, painful, and expensive. Therefore, let a legal professional help you with the process of moving forward.

A Premises Liability Attorney for You

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, slip and fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability accidents. When it comes to defining a premises liability accident, these accidents often include a myriad of examples, such as one of the following:

  • staircase accidents
  • insufficient security
  • defective electrical wiring
  • faulty construction
  • building code violations
  • elevator malfunctions
  • theme park accidents
  • faulty sidewalks and more

One element all the examples listed above have in common is the fact that they can all be prevented. Since these accidents can (usually) be prevented, someone should be held accountable for any injuries sustained as a result.

The injuries often sustained in these types of accidents include the following: dislocations, broken bones, amputations, disfigurations, burns, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, head injuries, and more. As you can gather, these injuries require time to heal, as well as expensive and consistent medical treatment.

A premises liability attorney can help ensure you awarded compensation to assist with all medical bills and missed wages.
