The Woodlands Premises Liability / Slips & Falls
Property owners as well as business managers have a legal duty to make sure their property is safe for the public. When they fail to do so, their negligence can be the cause of serious injury and hardship. The Woodlands premises liability attorneys at Kemp Law Firm help the people harmed by unsafe property conditions obtain the compensation to which they are entitled.
Slip and Fall Injuries and More
Premises liability is commonly known as “slip and fall,” though there is far more to this body of law. There are two distinct categories in which premises liability generally falls. The first is in regards to the design and construction of the building and grounds. Both the building itself and the surrounding areas must be inherently safe, which entails having adequate lighting, proper guardrails and sufficient security and fire exits. The second category is that of dangerous conditions which must be addressed and fixed. Slippery floors from rain tracked in or a liquid spill must be promptly mopped and dried with proper warnings about the condition of the floor. Products must also be safely put on shelves, and employees must be subject to proper supervision and safety policies. If you have been raped or assaulted due to negligent security, those can fall under the scope of premises liability. Dog bites can also fall under premises liability if the dog is known to be vicious and has attacked before. An experienced Woodlands premises liability lawyer can determine whether you have a premises liability claim and how to aggressively pursue your compensation.
Cases involving premises liability and slip and falls are rarely cut-and-dried and can be very difficult to prove in court. In addition to proving your injuries through the opinions and findings of medical experts, you will also need to prove that the property owner did not take reasonable precautions to make their premises safe. Many slip and fall lawyers in The Woodlands simply take on a volume of cases in the hopes that one pays off big or that they can get a quick settlement instead of one that fully compensates you. Kemp Law Firm provides clients with over 50 years of experience, the resources and knowledge of a big downtown firm with the personalized service of a family firm. Our premises liability lawyers work to amass overwhelming evidence in the form of expert witnesses, company records and testimony regarding medical bills and lost wages.
