The most common type of premises liability case is a slip-and-fall. These accidents can happen anywhere, from a grocery store to a shopping mall. It is essential that you contact an attorney immediately in order for the investigation to begin. It can be difficult to prove that the store or property owner had knowledge of the dangerous situation and did not do enough to protect individuals from becoming injured. Discussing the facts surrounding your fall with an attorney as soon as possible will help to determine whether you have a possible claim for damages.

Dog Bites

Whether you were bitten by a dog at the dog owner’s home or on another property, the dog owner may be liable for your injuries. He or she is responsible for maintaining control of the dog at all times and ensuring the safety of people on his or her property.
