Dangerous Property Conditions Can Cause Serious Injury

Hazardous property conditions may not always be obvious. Common causes of injuries on public or private properties include:

  • Assaults resulting from inadequate security
  • Assaults and injuries resulting from inadequate lighting
  • Falling objects
  • Negligent property design
  • Safety regulation and protocol violations
  • Slips and falls due to wet surfaces or poorly maintained properties
  • Malfunctioning elevators and escalators
  • Spills or recently mopped and waxed floors
  • Loose or missing railings
  • Dog bites or animal attacks

If you were hurt on another’s property, contact an experienced premises liability attorney today. You’ll need a legal team to investigate your case as soon as possible to avoid losing vital evidence, and the lawyers at Bottaro Law want to help.

Public Property Injury Laws

If you were injured on public property, such as land or a building owned by the state or a local municipality, there are special laws that apply to your claim. These specific laws require you to provide certain parties with notice of your intent to file a personal injury claim. If you fail to provide this notice on time, the government may be able to deny payment of just compensation for your injuries. Don’t jeopardize your potential rights to compensation—seek legal help right away. We’re available to assist you 24/7—just call (401) 777-7777.
