If you have slipped or tripped and fallen on another’s private property or public property and have suffered injury as a result of your fall, it is important to connect with an experienced attorney to learn about your rights and options under the law. All too often, victims of fall injuries are unaware that they have rights under the law. They assume that the costs associated with their injuries are their burden to bear. In reality, many slip or trip and fall victims are entitled to significant compensation from the owners, managers, and/or insurers of the property upon which they fell. Speaking with an experienced premises liability attorney from Patterson Bray PLLC will help you to clarify whether you have strong grounds upon which to submit an insurance claim and/or file legal action at this time.
Property owners—be they public or private—and property managers are held to certain standards under the law. If they fail to uphold these standards and someone is hurt on their property as a result of their actions or inactions, they may be held legally and financially liable for the harm that was caused. “Premises liability” is a complex area of law, especially because so many property owners employ liability waivers before others are permitted to set foot on their property. As a result, it is a good idea to speak with an experienced Memphis, TN slip and fall lawyer before making either positive or negative assumptions about whether you currently have strong grounds upon which to file an insurance claim or legal action.
Individual property owners, property managers, public landholders, and businesses can all be held liable for property-related injury scenarios. This means that whether you slipped or tripped and fell in a parking lot, at your child’s school, at a neighbor’s house, at an amusement park, or at work, you may have cause for legal action at this time.
It is worth noting that if you fell while engaged in work-related activity—either onsite or offsite—that you may be in a position to collect workers’ compensation benefits as a result of your injuries. You may potentially hold the property owner liable in a civil suit as well, provided that you are not suing your employer directly.
