All property owners must ensure their property is reasonably safe for visitors. This is the law and there are very few exceptions. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. Property owners sometimes negligently do something that puts people’s safety at risk. When injuries happen as a result of the property owners’ actions or lack of actions, they can be found responsible. This is called “Occupier Liability”. If you were hurt in an accident involving unsafe property, the injury lawyers at Valent Legal can help.
While slip and fall accidents from wet floors, uneven tiles, broken handrails, and slippery surfaces are the most common type of occupier liability claim, these claims can include injuries from other hazards, such as poorly constructed houses or decks, falling merchandise in stores, or unsafe construction work.
Victims of property owner negligence can suffer from sprains, strains, concussions, chronic pain, migraines, sleep disorders, broken bones, and other trauma that can have severe consequences, particularly for the vulnerable and elderly. We understand that any injury can have a serious and long-lasting effect. And we are here to help guide you through the claim process, while you focus on your recovery.
