While you are on someone else’s property, it is their responsibility to ensure the safety and security of that area and the individuals on the premises. If you have been injured while on someone else’s property, you may have a premises liability case. For over 30 years, the Faulkner Law Offices has been representing individuals who have sustained a personal injury in premises liability situations. Our firm handles many different types of premises liability. Some of the types of cases we handle are listed below, though we are not limited to representing clients with these issues.
Slip and Fall
You have a reasonable assumption of safety when walking through businesses and other buildings. Substances on the floor, improper signage, unattended pool areas and other dangerous conditions can cause you to trip and fall or slip and fall, resulting in back and other types of injuries. By not tending to the conditions in their building, the owners and / or businesses existing in the building may be liable for defectively creating the condition in which you were injured.
Race Track Injuries
Our firm has been on the cutting edge of the law regarding injuries sustained at an auto racing track. The waivers that guests are required to sign include all race related injuries. However, the owners of the track have attempted to stretch the bounds of the waiver to include all injuries sustained at the track. We have successfully litigated several cases in which the track was forced to acknowledge the fact that non-race related injuries are not covered by the waiver.
Improper lighting and signage, or the poor visibility of property security guards can leave individuals on the property at risk for becoming the victim of some type of crime. Whether the crime committed is severe or minor, the property owners are still liable for your security while on their property. Also, our firm has handled cases in which security guards have attacked and beaten individuals on the premises, which is an intentional tort and security negligence on the part of the land owners.
