Minneapolis Premise Liability Lawyer
When you are on someone else’s property, it is the responsibility of that person to ensure that his property is considered safe. This means that electrical outlets should be safe, that toys and other obstacles should be put away or pointed out to visitors, and that any wet spills should be cleaned up. The reason is because if an accident occurs due to any obstacle or wet area, then they are to blame for the injuries. If you have suffered from a serious injury on someone else’s property, then contact McEwen & Kestner, PLLC to discuss your options.
What Constitutes Premise Liability?
Premise liability refers to any accidents that have occurred on someone else’s property. If you have been invited onto someone’s property, whether this is into a store, a mall, a school or a friend’s house, then they have the legal responsibility to ensure you are safe. There are a number of accidents that fall into the premise liability umbrella including the following:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Elevator/escalator injuries
- Nursing home accidents
- Child care/day car injuries
- Dog bite injuries
McEwen & Kestner, PLLC has the experience and the aggression you need when facing a premise liability lawsuit. We can assess your injury and determine who is at fault for the accident. In some instances the owner of the building may be to blame, while in other instances it may be the fault of an individual.
Premise Liability Injuries
In addition to a bruised tailbone, a premise liability accident can lead to the following injuries:
- Hip and back trauma, especially in the elderly
- Chronic back, neck and shoulder pain
- Broken bones
- Fractured skull and other head traumas
- Permanent disability
- Scarring, broken limbs
- Mental anguish
- Loss of wages if you are unable to work
- Financial hardship
- Loss of a quality of life
These injuries will often result in a loss of work as well as weeks, if not months, of recovering. You may need to attend occupational therapy or you may need to hire someone to take care of you during this time. You are already physically burdened by someone else’s neglect – make sure you are not financially burdened as well. We can help get the financial compensation for medical bills and other expenses during this time.
