If you have been injured on the premises of another—whether at a restaurant, a public place, your place of employment, another’s home, a store or other place, the Attorneys at Aubrey Givens and Associates can help you.
When you have been injured on the property of another, you may have a right to compensation for your injuries.
Tennessee premises liability cases are often referred to as slip and fall cases. Slip and Fall brings to mind the idea of minor accidents where someone falls, and we all try to contain our laughter. Sadly, this isn’t always the case. Many times, due to the negligence of a property owner individuals sustain serious injuries that result in lost income, medical bills, permanent injuries, etc.
Across the United States premises liability accidents are the largest cause of emergency room visits. Many premises liability accidents occur because of:
- Wet floors
- Unsafe equipment
- Poor lighting
- Improper cleaning procedures
- Poorly maintained walkways, stairs, or common areas
- Poorly maintained flooring
- Poorly maintained parking lots
- Dangerous substances
- Assaults, robbery, and rape
When you are on the property of another person, agency, or entity the owner or person in charge of that property is responsible for maintaining it in safe condition. If they do not maintain their property in a safe condition, they may be held liable for injuries suffered by an individual on that property.
Do not wait to report your injury. In Tennessee injured individuals have very limited periods within which to file their claims. Failure to do so could result in an outright denial of any compensation that you may otherwise be entitled to. Based upon this, it is imperative that you contact a competent Tennessee accident attorney as soon as possible. The Attorneys at Aubrey Givens and Associates are well versed in the time periods applicable to accident cases in Tennessee. Call us today for a free case evaluation at 615-444-4LAW.
If a business owner creates, is aware of or should be aware of a dangerous condition on his or her premises and does not take steps to fix or warn of the condition, he or she may be responsible for injuries caused by that dangerous condition. Additionally, when you go to a business you have a reasonable expectation of safety. As such, Tennessee Courts have held that owners are responsible for providing sufficient security to ensure that visitors are safe from criminal activity on their premises, including their parking lots.
