Tucson Accident Lawyer

for Dangerous Premises

When an accidental injury happens during a visit to another person’s property, the owner of that property may be liable for the injury. Under Arizona premises injury law, when you venture onto someone’s property you are owed a certain duty of care. Whether you are an invitee (a person who is on the property by express or implied invitation for a business purpose, such as shopping at the supermarket or eating at your favorite restaurant), a licensee (a person on the property by express or implied invitation for a social purpose), or a trespasser (a person on the property without actual or implied permission), the property owner still has a responsibility to ensure that hazards are taken care of.

If you have been injured in an accident that you believe may be the result of negligence or recklessness of another person or company, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost earnings, disfigurement, pain, emotional distress, and any permanent disabilities that you may have suffered. There are many negative side effects that come with a property injury, but those can be eased if you find an experienced, professional Tucson accident lawyer with extensive knowledge of dangerous premises cases.

Personal Injury Cases Due to Dangerous Premises

An uneven sidewalk, a broken railing, or even a spill on the floor could lead to serious injuries and even wrongful death. While each person has a duty to watch where they are going, property owners are responsible for injuries caused by hazards. If an owner of a property has failed to maintain the conditions of their premises, created an unsafe condition that caused the injury, or knew about the dangerous premises or unsafe hazard but failed to alert visitors, they may be held liable for injuries. 

Some Common Causes Of Dangerous Premises Injuries:

  • Icy driveways, parking lots, and sidewalks
  • Broken or missing stair railings
  • Malfunctioning escalators and elevators
  • Broken playground equipment
  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Uneven sidewalks or stairs
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Cracked or potholed walking surfaces

Types of Injury Claims

Dangerous premises can result in a variety of types of injuries. This means that your personal injury case may become more complicated if there are multiple injuries or multiple hazards on the property. At Grabb & Durando, our personal injury attorneys have extensive experience in securing compensation for many different types of injuries. In dangerous premises cases, you may experience any of the following:

Traumatic Brain Injuries

If you hit your head due to a fall on someone else’s property, you may suffer from a traumatic brain injury. This can be very serious and may even result in a disability that leaves you unable to work.

Broken Bones

Slips and falls due to dangerous premises issues can lead to bone fractures. Treatment for these injuries can be expensive and may result in lost wages if you need time off work to recover.

Spinal Cord Injuries

If you hit your spine during a fall, it can lead to a spinal cord injury. This can result in chronic back pain or paralysis. In these cases, you may be entitled to compensation for medical care, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
