Premises Liability Lawyer, Including “Slip and Fall”
Our personal injury law firm includes the investigation, and where appropriate, the pursuit of premises liability cases, including what is commonly known as slip and fall lawyer cases and dog bite lawyer cases. The term “premises liability” refers to injuries and damages occurring on another’s property. These cases can arise where a landowner or tenant fail to maintain the property in a safe manner or fail to warn another of a dangerous condition on the property.
Slip and fall lawyer: In one situation known as a “slip and fall,” an individual may fall and become injured due to a dangerous condition, such as a wet floor or icy walkway.
Dog bite lawyer: While we love our dogs, there are instances where dogs can cause serious personal injury, including by dog bite or other personal injuries caused by dog fright. As we have discussed in our blog, our RI and MA dog bite lawyers understand the law in this area and can help.
Other times when you need an experienced personal injury lawyer are for personal injuries caused by inadequate lighting, inadequate security, or negligent design, or violation of a safety code, such as the building code or the American with Disabilities Act.
It is important to understand that a landowner and tenant cannot, and do not, under the law, guarantee one’s safety. It is only in special circumstances where liability may properly apply.
There is special caselaw in Rhode Island and Massachusetts relating to premises liability law. For example, there are special laws that apply when you suffer a personal injury on public property such as a state or town property. In certain circumstances, special notice must be provided to the municipality within a short time of the personal injury or else you may lose your right to present a personal injury claim.
