Serious injuries can happen to anyone, at any time, without any warning. Oftentimes, these injuries devastate the physical, mental, emotional, and financial states of both the injured person and his or her family. Depending on the type and severity of the injury, it can prevent the individual who has been hurt from enjoying leisure activities, performing basic functions, and independently earning an income. To make matters worse, a serious injury may also require costly, painful, and time-consuming courses of treatment. The impact of a physical injury can negatively affect all areas of a victim’s life.

Other factors which can contribute to car accidents include poor road surfaces, defective roadways, potholes, and debris.
Fayetteville Premises Liability Attorneys
Premises liability means that property owners and operators are responsible for following maintenance codes and ensuring reasonable safety on their premises. If a homeowner or the owner of a business is aware of dangerous conditions on his or her property, and fails to correct the problem, they may be held liable if their negligent property maintenance results in injury or death.
Premises liability claims are relatively common in matters of wrongful death and personal injury, in part because so many property conditions can be hazardous. Hazardous conditions may exist on both commercial and residential properties, and can affect residents, visitors, customers, and passerby alike. Some common interior and exterior property conditions which can result in injury or death include:
- Loose or Faulty Wiring
- Wet or Slippery Surfaces
- Uneven Surfaces
- Poor Lighting
- Insufficient Security
- Structural Damage
Auto accidents and matters of premises liability are just two examples of the varied personal injury cases our firm regularly handles. If you or a loved one has been hurt by the negligence or careless actions of another party, you do not have to suffer with the consequences on your own. You may be able to seek compensatory damages.
