If you’ve suffered a slip and fall injury, then you know just how serious they can be. A loose handrail, an uncleaned spill, or even a jagged sidewalk is all it takes to cause a life-changing injury—leaving you to deal with medical bills, lost income, and decreased quality of life. The Law Offices of Brian A. Newman will help you get the compensation you deserve so you can start moving toward recovery.
What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability describes the responsibility that a property owner or occupant has to maintain a safe premise for normal use. This property can be a commercial business, public space, or even a private home. Owners or occupants who ignore hazardous conditions are acting negligently and can be held accountable if an injury occurs as a result of their negligence.
Of course, accidents happen, and not every slip and fall injury is the result of negligence. However, if an owner or occupant does not fix hazards in a timely manner or does not take reasonable measures (like regular inspections) to ensure the safety of their premises, there is likely a strong argument to be made for negligence.
Experienced With Insurance Companies and Private Individuals
When a slip and fall injury occurs, there is usually one of two parties responsible for restitution: if the owner or occupant has insurance, then the insurance company will likely be responsible for payment. If there is no insurance or the insurance is not adequate to cover the costs, then the private individual will need to be held accountable.
Both situations present their own challenges: insurance companies have extensive resources to fight for a smaller settlement, while private individuals may need to be pursued in court to secure payment. Whoever is responsible, Brian A. Newman has the tenacity to help you get the right compensation for your case.
