Premises Liability Attorney in New Hampshire
Were you injured on another's property?
Property and business owners are obligated to maintain safe conditions on their property for visitors. If they fail to do so and a person suffers from an injury, they may be held responsible. In order to receive compensation in a premises liability case, the property owner must be proved liable for the injuries. This can be done by showing negligence or carelessness when it came to maintaining safe conditions or meeting property regulations.
If you have been injured on someone else's property, retain the assistance of a New Hampshire premises liability lawyer from Mulvey, Cornell & Mulvey.
Proving Liability in Your Case
In order to prove liability, you and your attorney will need to show that the property owner acted negligently. Some common examples of negligence in which premises owners have been liable include:
- Holes in the ground
- Violations of health and safety codes
- Lack of warnings or signs
- Improperly maintained walkways
- Defective equipment
- Hazardous conditions
- Wet floors
- Dim lighting
- Defective chairs
- Uneven ground
If any of these conditions led to an injury, the owner of the property may be responsible for the injuries. There are two basic rules for determining liability in any case, the first rule is that the property owner has to keep the property safe. If they do not, they may be liable. Secondly, the visitor or guest has to use the property normally. If the visitor is acting or performing in an abnormally dangerous way then they may be liable for their own injuries.
Slip and Fall Accidents
The most common premises liability case that we have seen is a slip and fall accident. There are many causes that can lead to a slip and fall including ice on a walkway, standing water, slippery surfaces, loose gravel plus many others. This type of accident can lead to various types of injuries, such as lacerations, broken bones, brain injuries, strains and fractures. If you have been involved in an accident on someone else's property it is important to follow these procedures:
- File an injury report with the owner
- Take pictures of the scene as evidence
- Receive medical attention to make sure your injuries are on record
- Obtain a skilled premises liability lawyer
