Property Liability and Negligence situations | Chappell Law Group

We’ve all read about it before; someone gets injured on your property and sues you. There are even the more rare cases where someone breaks into a home, gets hurt, and sues the homeowner. These seem far-fetched and ridiculous, and often times they are, but you should still be educated on the topic! An individual should be protected from preventable injuries at places of business, and at their job. Slipping and falling on ice or a wet surface, falling objects, uneven and dangerous walk ways, and exposed sharp surfaces are some of the more common ways people get injured. So what should you do if you find yourself in one of these situations? First and foremost, make sure you’re not injured! If you are injured, document as much as you can and seek medical treatment immediately. We care about your well being; the legalities of the situation can be assessed after your injury symptoms have subsided. After medical treatment, contacting us should be your next action. We will discuss your case and analyze all available data to determine our approach. If you’re unsure about contacting us, a basic rule of thumb is, if the injury was caused by something easily preventable then there is a high probability we can help! Worst case scenario we tell you there were no laws broken, best case scenario we get you compensated for your lost time and suffering. Contact us today to discuss your situation! (239) 337-9875
