Portland Premises Liability Lawyers
You may have heard the term ‘slip-and-fall’ or ‘trip-and-fall’ to describe situations where an individual sues a property owner when he or she is injured by a condition on the owner’s property. The prototypical case is a shopper slipping on a wet floor at a grocery store. These cases fall under the broader banner of premises liability. Premises liability cases cover more than just a slippery floor. They cover all situations where, through the negligence of a property owner, a visitor is injured by a dangerous condition on the property. These injuries can be caused by uneven flooring, exposed electrical wiring, exposed sharp objects such as nails, or a myriad of other dangerous conditions.
John Pinzelik can help you recover damages when you have been injured by a dangerous condition on another’s property. Each year hundreds of thousands of people are injured because property owners fail to adequately warn of a dangerous condition or fail to fix a dangerous condition on their property. Children and the elderly are the most likely populations to suffer a slip-and-fall accident and their injuries can be quite severe.
If you feel that you have been hurt because a property owner was negligent (at fault) in not properly maintaining their property please contact us today and schedule a free consultation.
In order to prove a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall case you must be able to prove that there was some negligence on the part of the landowner.
If you suffer an injury on another’s property remember to take pictures, record names and contact information of potential witnesses, and contact an attorney as soon as possible.
People can be injured in bars, restaurants, grocery stores, amusement parks, movie theaters, etc. Liability is also not limited to business owners.
