Dangerous property can be much more than an eyesore. It can create injury and harm to others. Owners and property managers have a responsibility to maintain safe premises, and when they fail in this responsibility, the injured may have personal injury claims. If you or a loved one has been injured on dangerous or hazardous property, contact me, Marc Sedwick. I am a southern Indiana personal injury lawyer who can assist you in pursuing a claim. At my firm, SedwickLaw, PC, I have been successful in pursuing personal injury claims on behalf of those who have been seriously injured by the negligence of others. I am committed to fighting for their rights to full financial compensation.
A common cause of injury is the slip-and-fall accident, which occurs when stairs are damaged, icy or slippery or walkways are cracked or broken from tree roots. A restaurant or grocery store, for example, needs to take immediate and effective action when spills occur on hard surface floors. Improper warning of hazardous conditions can be grounds for premises liability cases. When renting property, the renter has the right to expect that the property is safe from hazards. If the owner knew of a danger on the property and failed to act to remedy it or warn of its danger, they may be held liable in a premises liability case.
Not all accidents that occur on a property are subject to a personal injury case, however. There are certain important factors that must have existed before the injury occurred. I can advise you on your situation. Contact my firm today.
