Have You Suffered a Serious Personal Injury?
As a legal principle that relates to personal injury cases in which property defects, unsafe conditions or other associated situations cause harm, premises liability often relates to tip and fall accidents. However, the scope of the law may also extend to other circumstances such as animal attacks or construction site accidents. When you or a family member is on the receiving end of an injury that was due to another landowner’s negligence, you deserve fair compensation and should be able to fight for that right.
Personal injuries can take on many different forms and, unfortunately, premises liability cases are often just as detrimental physically, financially and emotionally—depending on the type of accident that occurs and the impact it has on the future of the individual that was injured. When a premises liability injury occurs, it is important to contact an experienced attorney immediately to determine what your options may be before you speak with the insurance company. At Graves McLain, we will be by your side to communicate with the insurance company, medical professionals, and witnesses—all to help you get fair compensation.
