Negligent Property Owners Must Be Held Accountable For Their Actions
Dangerous property can cause injuries in numerous ways. There may be a lack of security, a dangerous animal, open hazards and more. However, falls are one of the most common causes of injuries in premises liability cases.
Regardless of the cause, premises liability cases generally require the injured party to prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the danger and did nothing to remedy it or warn visitors of it. This can be a challenging task, but the lawyers at Amethyst Law Group have the experience to build a strong case for the injured person. We draw on our legal knowledge and our 30-plus years of combined experience with these cases. We also strive to provide representation that helps clients feel the healing and protective qualities of the Amethyst stone by being sympathetic listeners and zealous protectors of their rights.
Falls Can Result In Serious Or Fatal Injuries
Although falling may not sound serious, it can cause injuries that are life-changing such as:
- Broken bones and vertebrae
- Broken hips
- Back and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
Any of these injuries can be catastrophic, and suffering a severe TBI or certain spinal cord injuries can lead to death. It is best to get legal counsel as soon as possible in these cases so your attorney can begin building a case for full and fair compensation.
