Whether you are a residential, commercial, or industrial property owner, you will be required by state law to maintain a safe and secure property that is free of unreasonable harms to unsuspecting visitors, tenants, or patrons. Failing to maintain a secure property could result in serious injuries. In the event of an accident, an injured victim can hold a property owner liable for the resulting damages.
If you were injured while on someone else's property, speak with our Victoria personal injury attorney. At The Daspit Law Firm, we know how to hold negligent property owners liable for their misconduct. Backed by Attorney John Daspit's extensive background as a former defense lawyer, we know exactly what is needed to prove that the property owner failed to prevent an accident that caused the extent of your injuries, damages, or the premature death of a loved one.
Slip and Fall Accidents
One of the leading causes of premises liability, slip, trip, or fall accidents can happen nearly anywhere. Though they are common in workplace settings, slip and fall accidents can occur in public settings, retail stores, shopping malls, or grocery stores. Many slip and fall accidents could have been avoided if a property owner or employee had kept a floor clean, cleared slick surfaces, or posted a clear warning sign.
Accidents can occur on all types of private or public property because of negligent security. Workplace accidents can arise due to lack of security enforcement. Injuries can occur in an apartment complex due to insufficient lighting or fencing, or catastrophic injuries can result in a public place lacking security measures. Additionally, failing to provide efficient security measures can even lead to criminal activity on a property, such as violent attacks, sexual assaults, or robberies.
Pets that are not placed on leashes or are not properly muzzled can be a danger to the public. A dog can attack even if the dog has never demonstrated violent behavior in the past. Unfortunately, small children are often the victims of animal attacks, and the resulting damages can be far reaching. Injuries can include lesions, infections, broken bones, or permanent emotional scarring.
We know that property owners will try to avoid blame or will try to deny guilt entirely. We can handle complex cases involving serious injuries resulting from property owner negligence and can investigate your accident thoroughly to establish negligence in your case. Our Victoria premises liability lawyer isn't afraid to litigate for a fair verdict on your behalf but can also pursue a favorable outcome through settlement negotiation.
