Your Legal Guidance Through Recovery

Legal Guidance When You Are Injured On Someone Else’s Property

Can a fall result in serious injury? Absolutely. Slip-and-fall and other premises liability cases occur with alarming frequency, and many can result in arm or leg fractures or even a head injury. The bottom line in a serious slip or trip and fall accident – whether it occurs in a restaurant or a mall entrance – is that if the accident was due to negligence on the part of the property owner, the owner must pay.

At Wiseman Law Firm, PLLC, we work to ensure that responsible parties do pay. Our firm wants you to get the compensation you deserve in your premises liability case. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.

Slip And Fall

Wiseman Law Firm, PLLC, handles a select number of slip-and-fall cases, often those involving orthopedic injury, which nearly always results in the need for surgery. If a hazardous condition (due to poor maintenance or upkeep) on another’s property causes you to fall and results in serious injury, rely on our firm to remove the legal burden and help you obtain compensation. Typical slip-and-fall cases we handle include injuries such as:

  • Hip fracture
  • Torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL or knee ligament)
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Tibia and fibula fracture
  • Head injury
  • Herniated disc

These injuries can make it difficult to enjoy your life and support your loved ones. Compensation for your injury can help you with your medical care while you focus on what you need to do to recover.

Dog Bites

If you have been bitten by a dog, whether on or off the responsible owner’s property, you have rights. Our lawyers address compensation for medical costs, cosmetic surgical costs and psychological rehabilitative costs in dog bite cases.

Inadequate Security

If you have been attacked in a parking garage or ramp and poor security or lighting is a major contributing factor, speak with our attorneys about working to get the compensation you deserve and helping to hold property owners to higher safety standards.

The Property Owner’s Duty

As property owners, there are specific duties that they owe to the people on their property. These duties can vary depending on the type of property and the reason for the visit. Generally, property owners must ensure that their property is reasonably safe for those who are lawfully on the premises. This means they must take reasonable steps to address any hazardous conditions on the property and provide adequate warnings to visitors of any potential dangers.

Understanding The Risks

Different types of properties present different risks for accidents. Construction sites, for example, may present risks due to heavy machinery, scaffolding and other construction materials. Retail stores, on the other hand, may have potential hazards such as slippery floors, unsecured merchandise and poor lighting. Playgrounds and amusement parks may have risks associated with poorly maintained equipment and insufficient safety measures. And, of course, homes with swimming pools may present the risk of drowning if proper safety measures are not in place.
