Dallas Premises Liability Attorney
We have all seen physical warning signs for the various hazards we may encounter in day-to-day life. A wet floor sign may seem like a nuisance when it’s blocking something you’re reaching for at the grocery store, but if it were not there to warn you of the slipping danger, you may not notice the wet floor, slip and fall, and potentially get hurt.
Having clearly displayed warnings and maintaining safety on the premises are both the responsibility of a property owner or manager. When the situation on someone’s property poses a danger, they must take action to fix the issue; if they fail to do so and someone is injured as a result, they may be responsible. If you’ve been hurt as a result of a property owner’s negligence, the Dallas premises liability attorneys at The Benton Law Firm may be able to help you hold that individual accountable for your medical bills and other injury-related expenses.
Types of Premises Liability Claims
There are many ways a property owner can fail to hold their property to a safe standard. Missing warning signs, allowing water to pool, staircases with missing steps, and toxic materials all imply that safety has been neglected. Whether it is done to cut costs or out of sheer neglect, it is unacceptable to ignore your guests’ safety. Some common reasons people are injured on unsafe premises include:
- Slip and Fall
- Elevator / Escalator Injuries
- Porch Collapse
- Stair Collapse
- Lead Paint Poisoning
- Mercury Poisoning
Being the victim of a dangerous environment can be incredibly costly. Expensive medical bills, missed time from work, and potentially lifelong complications from the injury can all conspire to alter your life’s course in a way that you did not want or expect. However, an experienced Dallas personal injury lawyer from The Benton Law Firm may be able to help you recover damages from the party responsible for your injury.
