Protecting Victims Of Dangerous Premises Accidents
Property owners must maintain their premises in reasonably safe condition. Visitors have the right to expect that the property is safe or that they will be warned of anything that poses a danger. When a dangerous condition does cause an injury, the property owner may be liable for the harm the visitor suffered.
At Winters & Yonker, P.A., our attorneys protect the rights of injury victims. We handle premises liability claims based on a wide range of incidents, including:
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Accidents in construction areas
- Criminal assaults on the property of another
If you were harmed while on somebody else’s property, you should discuss your situation with an experienced lawyer. Call us at 888-373-7770 or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation.
Premises Liability Accidents
While almost any accident on the property of another could lead to a premises liability claim, there are common scenarios that we have seen repeatedly. Wet or slick floors are a danger, particularly when they are not marked. Grocery stores, hotels, bars, restaurants and other establishments must make sure that slippery floors, uneven surfaces and other trip hazards are marked or eliminated to protect patrons. Dog owners must be aware that dogs and strangers are an uncertain mix. Dogs should be properly trained and secured to prevent bites. Finally, unlit stairwells, alleys, parking lots and exits may attract criminals seeking victims. If a property owner knows that an area is a target for crime and does nothing about it, victims of that crime may have a legal claim against the property owner.

If you have been injured, you must contend with medical bills, lost wages, pain and other problems. Property owners have insurance to pay these expenses when injuries occur. We can help you assert your rights and force those insurance companies to pay you full compensation for the harm done to you.
