Little Rock Premises Liability Attorneys
Accidents can occur anywhere at any time. The places or businesses you visit should be safe, but that isn’t always the case.
Landlords and property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe and warn visitors about potentially dangerous situations. Unfortunately, many landlords and property owners do not uphold this responsibility. This can result in you or someone you know suffering serious bodily injury or death.
If this has happened to you, you have a right to seek compensation to cover your medical expenses and other damages. The Little Rock premises liability attorneys at the Minton Law Firm will use their years of experience defending personal injury victims to fight for you.
Our strategy is well thought out, aggressive, and effective, and it is backed by attorney Justin Minton’s previous experience as an insurance adjustor. Please call us today at 501-404-5433 for your free consultation with one of our knowledgeable lawyers.
Types of Premises Liability Accidents
Many personal injury cases are also premises liability cases. Premises liability is defined as the responsibility of a landowner or landlord to maintain a reasonably safe environment for their tenants or patrons.
When an accident is a result of the failure to maintain a safe environment, the injuries can range from mild to life-changing. Types of premises liability accidents include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Nursing home accidents
- Dog bites or animal attacks
- Workplace accidents
- Playground accidents
- Construction accidents
- Elevator/escalator accidents
- Amusement park accidents
Security Breaches and Robberies
Premises liability extends beyond accidents. It is also the landowner or landlord’s responsibility to make sure the property is safe and well protected. If you were the victim of a robbery or assault where you live, you may be able to take legal action against the owner of the property.
In many cases, a lack of effective security allows crime to prosper. If you were hurt or assaulted by an intruder, you need an experienced premises liability attorney to prove that your residence was not sufficiently prepared to protect you against an assailant. To do this, we look for evidence of things like:
- Dim lighting in common areas
- Overgrown bushes or trees that provide a hiding place for intruders
- Deserted and/or poorly lit parking areas
- Broken locks
- Breach of duty by security guards
- Failure to install alarms and other safety measures
