Phoenix Premises Liability Lawyers Helping You Obtain Rightful Compensation When You are Hurt on Someone Else’s Property
What is premises liability?
Homeowners, storekeepers and landlords have a duty to keep their properties free from dangerous or defective conditions. When it is not possible to correct the problem immediately, owners have a responsibility to alert the public to the potential hazard by posting warning signs or otherwise preventing visitors from suffering harm. If you have been injured because a property owner has failed to take the appropriate safety precautions, a personal liability attorney from Lewis and Pokora in Phoenix can help you recover compensation for the physical, financial and emotional damages you incurred.
Our experienced Phoenix premises liability attorneys provide clients with the legal advice and guidance needed to secure the maximum possible coverage for their injuries, including compensation for medical bills, lost days of work, pain and suffering, property damage or many other types of damages sustained during the accident. Depending on the facts of your case, our premises liability lawyers in Phoenix can investigate the cause of the accident and help to secure your legal right to monetary recovery. Please contact our firm if you have been injured in a premises liability accident such as the following:
What to do if you are injured on someone else’s property
When inadequate property maintenance or security negligence leads to your injury, it is crucial to take the following steps in order to maximize your chances at compensation:
- Preserve the evidence in your case. Evidence may dissipate in the days and weeks following an accident on someone else’s property. Ice melts, wet floors get mopped, sidewalks are repaired and memories fade. It is important to contact our Phoenix slip and fall attorneys as soon as possible so that we can preserve the necessary evidence in your case. Our lawyers can locate and depose witnesses so that your claim is properly and thoroughly handled.
- In Arizona, it matters whether you are an invited guest or trespasser. This distinction makes a difference to Arizona judges deciding whether to allow a legal claim to proceed. However, there are some exceptions to the general rule that bars trespassers from seeking compensation for injuries. For example, a landowner may be liable for injuries to his or her neighbor who is passing through an easement or a child who approaches a pet. In such cases, you should contact a Phoenix construction accident lawyer or dog bite lawyer from our firm for legal advice and guidance.
