Home ownership carries great responsibility. When guests experience injuries at a person's home, the homeowner may be liable. Unsafe home conditions and failure to fix problem areas, such as loose railings, account for more injuries than one may realize. If you were injured on someone's property and need financial help for medical treatment, you may have a claim.
Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P. is a premier personal injury firm providing experienced handling of homeowner liability claims in Monterey County. Our attorneys are ready to help you sort through the details of your matter and present every available option for you to pursue. Let us help you find the right path to recovery when a serious injury occurs.Helping the Injured with Premises Liability Claims in Monterey
Insurance companies train claim representatives to thoroughly investigate claims and find any plausible reason to deny payment. This is why we do not recommend that our clients speak to them directly. You may unknowingly offer a detail that could negatively impact your ability to receive payment. Admitting fault or offering information that is open for interpretation may help build a case against you. Providing details about your physical or emotional state when the incident occurred could be used to assign fault to you and absolve the homeowner or its insurance company of responsibility. Everything you say may be recorded and used later in claim negotiations or a trial.
Our homeowner liability lawyers know how to communicate with insurance entities on your behalf to secure the compensation you need. If you must speak to them for any reason, we will guide you on how to properly communicate the necessary facts. When necessary, we will accompany you in face-to-face meetings or participate in conference calls. Since 2006, we have helped those injured in residential areas build appropriate, beneficial responses.Skilled Representation for Homeowner Liability Matters
Our attorneys have extensive experience and continued success negotiating with insurance companies. If it becomes necessary to take your matter to trial, we have the knowledge and experience to present a strong case in your favor. We have handled matters for injuries resulting from:
- Lack of repair to the home: Broken steps, cracked sidewalks, and loose handles can result in falls and other injuries. Additionally, negligent floor care can cause slip and fall injuries.
- Poorly lit areas: An improperly lit stairwell or entry way can contribute to serious injuries including falling down stairs, stepping on a sharp object, or walking into something abruptly.
- Improper organization: -Leaving piles of objects around and failure to sweep up debris could cause a person to stumble or sustain a wound from objects with pointed edges.
- Unsafe handling of pools or hot tubs: Failure to properly secure covers for pools and hot tubs or keep the area around the water safe with proper rescue equipment can have serious and even fatal results.
While this list does not account for all of the scenarios that may occur, we can address the circumstances you are facing. Our premises liability lawyers can provide an excellent argument that demonstrates the relationship between the homeowner's negligence and your unfortunate injury.
