Phoenix Premises Liability Attorneys
Our Law Firm Can Help File a Claim
When you suffer an injury on someone else’s property or business due to the negligence of the property owner, he or she is responsible, even if he or she was not directly involved in the incident that caused your injury. Any Phoenix premises liability lawyer will tell you that all public places should be safe and clear of hazards. It is the property owner's duty to remove hazards and mark a dangerous area off as quickly as possible.
If you or someone you know recently suffered head trauma or a broken bone in a slip-and-fall accident in Arizona, contact Breyer Law Offices, P.C. Our team can help you determine who the responsible party is, and work to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Some examples of premises liability include, but are not limited to:
- Slip-and-fall in a grocery store
- Dog bites
- House fixtures falling off and striking someone
- Drowning due to improper pool security
- Assault due negligent security
In any of these cases, the owner of the property may be held liable for any damages or injuries that were sustained on their property.
Injuries Caused by Slip-and-Fall Accidents
Hundreds of thousands of slip-and-fall accidents occur every year. A variety of circumstances, such as improper building design, slippery floors, or other hazards, can cause these accidents. If you experience major injuries in a slip-and-fall, like a head injury or broken bone, working with a knowledgeable lawyer can ensure that you get all the assistance you need when building a case to recover damages.
At Breyer Law Offices, P.C., our team gathers witness accounts of the accident and collects evidence to determine whether the property owner knew or should have known about the hazard that caused your injuries.
What If You Only Have Minor Injuries?
The decision to seek compensation for an injury is ultimately a personal one. Filing a Phoenix personal injury claim can be time-consuming and emotionally draining. Not every injury is worthy of a claim, and we have seen far too many people "pushed" towards litigation on cases that are not worth the time, effort, energy, or expense.
However, where to "draw the line" is a tough call, and it never hurts to get the input of experienced, straightforward Phoenix premises liability lawyers who will tell you if you have a case worthy of pursuing.
After an Accident, What Can You Do to Support Your Claim?
Firstly, it is best to create a paper trail, and making sure that your account of the accident is down on paper is a good start. Photographs with the relevant details (i.e., what caused the slip and fall) and eyewitness accounts are important as well. If the slip-and-fall accident took place at a business, the owner may want a report filled out. Because state law does not require such a report, as experienced Phoenix personal injury lawyers, we advise that you get input from your lawyer first.
How Long Do You Have to File a Premises Liability Claim in Arizona?
There are statutes of limitations that apply to any personal injury case, including premises liability. If your injury was due to a property defect, you may have two years to file a claim. However, in some cases, it may be as little as 180 days, depending on who the owner or property manager was at the time the injury occurred. Claims against government or public entities have an especially short window in which to file.
