Slip-And-Fall Accidents (Premises Liability): Helping Accident Victims Hold Negligent Property Owners Accountable
Accidents happen and people slip, trip and fall every day, but when the circumstances that caused the incident stem from negligence on the part of property owners and overseers, victims have options for holding property owners accountable and pursuing compensation.
Whether your injuries were relatively minor or may have long-lasting implications, it's important to learn about your rights and hold negligent parties accountable. Oftentimes the action you take not only helps you get the compensation you deserve, but it can ensure that others don't suffer similar injuries due to a property owners actions (or inaction).
Understanding A Property Owners Duty To Care
At Troutman & Napier, PLLC, our attorneys have been helping people in Kentucky understand premises liability laws and take appropriate actions toward obtaining compensation for their slip, trip and fall injuries.
In short, property owners have a legal responsibility to ensure their property is reasonably safe. This means addressing potentially dangerous situations promptly. For example, if you reported that the hand railing in your apartment building's stairwell was loose, but your landlord did nothing about it, if you or another resident in your building falls because the railing comes loose, your landlord can be held responsible for failing to address a reported issue.
At our firm, we handle the spectrum of injury claims, slip-and-fall and other premises liability accidents, including but not limited to:
- Defective staircases
- Defective elevators and escalators
- Defective or insufficient lighting in stairwells or other areas
- Insufficient security
- Unmarked obstacles
- Spilled substances
- Unmarked or uneven flooring
- Unprotected ledges or overhangs
- Exposure to chemicals or hazardous materials
More than just lawyers, we are counselors who want to advise you. We can work closely with you, offer an honest assessment of your claim and help you pursue compensation to cover your medical bills and other accident-related expenses. Ultimately, we want to make sure you have the support and resources you need to get the money you deserve. There are time limits and other factors to consider when filing a claim, so it's important to act quickly.
We handle injury claims on a contingency fee basis which means you don't have to pay any legal fees upfront.
