When Injuries Occur On Another Person’s Property
Property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe. When injuries occur on someone else’s property, that property owner can be held liable in a premises liability case. This is true whether this individual is a homeowner, landlord or business owner. As recovery in such cases can be complex, it is important to retain a lawyer who knows what they are doing when helping you recover compensation.
Attorney Raul Rodriguez has over 25 years’ experience in trying challenging premises liability and personal injury cases involving severe and catastrophic injuries. Rudy understands property owner insurance policies, and how to hold insurance companies accountable for the policies they provide. He will strive to find you the sort of recovery that will meet your personal, financial and medical needs.
Types Of Premises Liability Cases We Represent
Raul “Rudy” Rodriguez, PC, provides representation whenever serious injuries arise on someone else’s property due to the fault of the property owner. The most common types of premises liability include:
- Dog bite cases: Dog bites and animal attacks can result in serious injuries. Because they may not be able to defend themselves, senior citizens and young children are especially vulnerable to animal attacks. Such attacks can often lead to severe lacerations, scarring and infections. Especially when the scarring involves the face, the victim may require extensive surgery to repair the damage. The owners of these animals and pets are ultimately responsible for such injuries.
- Slip-and-fall injuries: Because of slippery conditions, uneven pavement, defective staircases or railings, individuals sometimes fall down and suffer a wide variety of injuries. Such injuries can include broken bones, head trauma, injuries to the neck and back and even paralysis. These injuries often can be permanent. Property owners need to keep their premises safe in order that slip-and-fall accidents do not occur.
- Negligent security: Restaurants, bars and establishments sometimes can be held accountable for the actions of others on the premises. Such businesses must therefore provide adequate security to keep everyone on the premises safe. The failure to have security available can mean these businesses are responsible under the theory of premises liability.
If you are the victim of a premises liability accident, you can recover past and future medical expenses, wage loss, and compensation for pain and suffering. At our law firm, we can explain to you all of your legal options and the best means for recovering these damages.
