Jonesboro Premises Liability Attorneys - Our Arkansas Law Firm Can Put Experience to Work For You
Property owners in Arkansas are responsible for making sure their premises are reasonably safe for others. Whether you are a customer at a retail store or a guest on someone's property, you should reasonably expect to be safe from harm.
This isn't always the case. Accidents happen on private and commercial property every day, from trip and fall accidents to violent assaults that result in serious injury or death. Property owners can be held responsible if another person is injured or dies as a result of negligence on the premises. The legal term for these cases is premises liability. You may have grounds to pursue a premises liability lawsuit or a wrongful death claim.
At McDaniel Law Firm, PLC, we understand how complicated life can become after an accident on somebody else's property. Premises liability laws are complex. You may have done nothing to cause your accident. But the property owner or manager who caused your accident may deny any wrongdoing. The insurance company may come back with an unreasonably low offer. That's not acceptable. Contact us today. If you were injured on someone's property or a loved one was injured or died due to negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
A closer look at property accidents
Many premises liability cases arise out of slip and fall accidents. Other examples of situations leading to a potential premises liability case include:
- Negligent security (for example, a poorly lighted parking lot may be a contributing factor in a criminal assault)
- Poor maintenance of property (for example, a business with torn carpet or a broken handrail may contribute to an injury)
- Items falling from a shelf in a department store
In proving negligence in a premises liability case, the following conditions must generally be present:
- The party responsible for the property created the condition.
- The condition was known but no steps were taken to correct it.
- Enough time had gone by for the responsible party to become aware of the condition that it should have been corrected.
