An Experienced Injury Lawyer Can Protect Your Rights
Premises liability covers a wide range of accidents, such as:
- Animal attacks — Dog bites are the most common type of animal attack. Too often, children are bitten on the face, which requires multiple surgeries and cosmetic procedures. In a severe attack, the victim may suffer facial injuries, scarring, and permanent nerve damage or loss of use of a hand, arm or leg.
- Slip-and-fall accidents — Because many people hit their heads when they fall, these accidents can be serious or deadly. Other typical injuries include broken bones, back, neck and spinal injuries.
- Escalators and elevators — Injuries that occur on these machines can be severe and include broken bones, amputations and wrongful death.
- Negligent security — Broken gates and locks, insufficient lighting, missing security systems and other defects can lead to physical and sexual assault, robbery and other crimes.
- Open hazards — Lack of warning or safety measures in public recreation areas, such as swimming pools, can also cause injury and death.
