Have You Been Injured on Someone’s Property?
If you have been injured on someone’s personal or commercial property, contact an injury lawyer immediately to find out if you are eligible to file a personal injury claim. Property owners are required to maintain their premises. This include providing adequate lighting, fixing cracks and holes in sidewalks, ensuring the building is structurally sound, providing sufficient security, and properly storing equipment and supplies. When a landowner’s negligence causes an accident, they can be held accountable for the damages.
Property accidents can result in severe injuries such as head trauma, broken bones, spinal cord damage, back injuries and knee injuries. Medical treatment can prohibitive, and require a lengthy recovery period. Personal injury compensation can cover injury-related costs such as hospitalization, medical bills and rehabilitation, as well as lost income and benefits for pain, suffering and emotional trauma. Benefits are also paid in cases of wrongful death, such as loss of companionship and loss of support.

We are well-versed in liability laws and can give you sound legal advice regarding injury compensation. Before launching his own firm, David Van Sant worked as an insurance defense attorney, and knows what to expect from insurance carriers when filing a personal injury claim. Premises Liability statutes pertain to injuries suffered on another person’s property, such as:

- Trip & Falls
- Amusement park accidents
- Recreational accidents

Were you seriously injured in a slip and fall accident? Although these may not sound like serious situations, a slip and fall accident can result in catastrophic injuries. Ranging in severity from sprains to broken bones to head trauma to spinal cord injuries, if you have been injured, you could be entitled to compensation. The most common causes of slip and fall accidents include a wet surface, an uneven surface, a torn carpet, or uneven steps. In order to prove that the owner’s negligence was the cause of the slip and fall accident, one of three things must be proven. First, the property owner or employee was responsible for causing the hazard. Second, they knew about the danger but failed to do anything about it. Third, they did not know about the hazard, but someone else in their situation would have reasonably known about the risk. They could be responsible for paying for any medical expenses if it was shown to be their fault.
