Each year, people are injured across the Lehigh Valley, in accidents that occur when premises are not properly maintained. If you or a loved one has been injured while visiting a business, home, apartment, or any other type of premises, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
When you enter a grocery store, another person’s house, or a commercial building, you expect the building or property to be safely maintained and free from hazard. Premises liability accidents often occur because of negligent maintenance, defective products, and security breaches. If you believe your personal injuries are a result of negligent maintenance, contact the skilled premises liability lawyers at the Trapani Law Firm.
Severe injuries, such as brain injury, spinal cord injury and amputation can be the result of an unsafe premises.
Injuries can happen anywhere and at any time. Apartments, stadiums, grocery stores, hotels, pools, elevators, malls, and even in the office. When a premises liability accident occurs, the owner of the building, house or business establishment can be held responsible for the damage caused. Additionally, the owner’s premise liability insurance policy may cover the accident. Premise liability accidents include slip and falls, dog bites, inadequate security, porch or railing accidents and toxic substances.
One of the most common types of premises liability actions are slip and fall accidents. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 1 million people will suffer from a slip and fall injury each year in the U.S. These cases frequently occur when a sidewalk is properly maintained. Many trip and fall injuries can be serious and permanent.
Another common premises liability action involves the use of toxic substances. Chemical plants, power companies, factories, landfills, hospitals, groundwater, lakes and streams can all be contaminated with toxins such as radiation. Homes insulated with asbestos and walls containing mold spores can be sources of toxins, which result in permanent heath conditions such as Mesothelioma. The Allentown premises liability attorneys at The Trapani Law Firm work with a team of experts to investigate all potential toxic tort claims.
Regardless of the type of accident, premises liability actions provide recourse against the property owners, landlords, or security companies who are liable. If a property owner had knowledge or warning of a premises defect such as a broken handrail, defective lock, broken light or broken gate and you have been injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation.
