You’re not clumsy. You were paying attention. You had a slip and fall accident, which could have been caused by a negligent property owner who knew about an issue but didn’t take the time to address it. If you or a family member has been seriously injured in an accident involving a slip and fall on a dangerous surface, Young & Young is here to offer advice and representation in the aftermath of the accident caused by dangerous property conditions.
The law of premises liability deals with the responsibility of a property owner to keep buildings and grounds in a reasonably safe condition for visitors, guests, commercial patrons and passers-by. The specific contours of the duty of care on the owner can vary considerably depending on the facts of the case, the condition of the property, the actual risk to be guarded against, and even the age of the victim.
At Young & Young, our injury lawyers’ experience with the investigation and evaluation of premises liability claims can help you recover the full compensation that you are entitled to – namely, the full amount of your physical and economic losses whenever we find that the negligence of a property owner played an important role in your injury.
