Murfreesboro Premises Liability Lawyers
Hold Property Owners Accountable for Unsafe Conditions
When you visit a home or a business, you expect the conditions to be safe enough for you not to be injured. While there are some conditions that property owners cannot control, they have a duty to do whatever possible to keep their guests safe.
If you were injured because someone else did not exercise reasonable care on their property, let the Murfreesboro premises liability lawyers at Gritton & Gritton help you fight for compensation to treat your injuries.
When Are Property Owners Responsible?
Not all injuries that take place on someone else’s property afford that victim the right to obtain compensation in a lawsuit. For example, if they slide down a staircase handrail and hurt themselves in the process, they would have a difficult time proving that the property owner’s negligence caused their injury.
On the other hand, if the stairway had a broken handrail that cut the person's hand open, the property owner would likely be held responsible.
Other instances of premises liability could include:
- Insufficient lighting in a parking lot
- Poorly maintained sidewalks
- Lack of visible warnings for dangerous conditions
- Dirty conditions that obscure a person’s ability to avoid potentially injurious areas
- Dog bites
- Slippery floors
- Swimming pool accidents
