Property ownership carries great reward and responsibility. When injuries occur on site, such owners may be liable if negligence is a factor. Commercial properties and homes may have conditions that are hazardous, such as broken railings, cracked sidewalks, and faulty wiring. If you are seriously injured or a loved one has died as a result of property owner negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your loss.
At Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P., we take a detailed approach to claim management, systematically working through every aspect until we uncover each contributing factor of harm. This approach ensures that we are able to identify each liable party and hold them accountable. We understand the importance of capturing every piece of data. With a complete picture of the matter, our attorneys can offer solid representation that lays a foundation for success.Critical Steps for On-Premise Injuries
When injuries occur, timing is extremely important. Seek medical attention immediately. A medical professional can properly assess the impact of the injury, even though all symptoms and health issues may not manifest right away. Once you have your medical needs addressed, connect with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers. We will investigate the matter fully to determine the root cause of your injury. Finally, limit your communication with commercial or home insurance companies. They do not have your best interests in mind; we can speak with them on your behalf.Skilled Representation for Premises Liability Claims and Cases
Depending on the property and its usage, property owners have various levels of responsibility to their guests. When proving negligence, we will establish the duty of each property owner to protect guests and determine whether that duty was breached and therefore caused serious injury or death. We provide assistance with premises liability claims related to the following matters:
- Homeowner liability;
- Commercial property owner liability;
- Nursing home neglect, abuse and injuries;
- Negligent security;
- Sports and recreational injuries;
- Swimming pool accidents;
- Amusement park accidents;
- Construction site injuries;
- Scaffolding and ladder falls;
- Electrical injuries; and
- Slip and fall injuries.
Every property owner must make a reasonable effort to make conditions safe. Failure to repair structures or properly warn people about known dangers is unacceptable. We will work to secure the compensation you need to heal from your injuries and take care of your family in the case of wrongful death. We are prepared to settle the matter if it is in your best interest, but if we must go to trial we will aggressively contend for your rights.
