In order to ensure the safety of all visitors and guests, property owners are expected to keep their premises in reasonably safe condition. This includes private homeowners with guests, as well as government agencies and public places such as shopping malls and amusement parks.
While premises liability cases aren’t nearly as noticeable or dramatic as auto accidents or truck accidents, they can still result in catastrophic injuries or even wrongful death. Many victims of such accidents are left dealing with long-term or permanent injuries. Among these injuries are burns, electric shocks, broken bones, head injuries, neck injuries, and spinal cord injuries.
If you have been seriously injured while on the property of another person or entity, contact an attorney from Lexton Law Firm as soon as possible.
Premises Liability Law
Property owners have a duty to their patrons to take reasonable care to keep their premises safe. Taking reasonable care means warning visitors or fixing dangers such as uneven floors, slippery surfaces, and icy steps. Liability may also extend to dog bites or attacks, escalator or elevator accidents, incidents resulting from insufficient security, or injuries or sicknesses resulting from poor ventilation or the presence of toxic materials. Unfortunately, some property owners and managers allow such dangerous or hazardous conditions to persist on their properties, thus placing the wellbeing and safety of innocent individuals at risk.
Premises liability laws may vary according to state. Generally, however, such laws dictate that property owners are held financially accountable for individuals injured on their property. While not all accidents may result in valid injury claims, victims who have suffered an injury or accident on the property of another are advised to look into their legal options and rights, as they may be entitled to receive compensation for their injuries and losses.

An experienced lawyer can advocate for your rights and best interests, and help you to pursue justice.
