Advocating for You: Personal Injury & Premises Liability Lawyers

Property owners have a certain set of obligations under local, state, and federal laws. These laws, however, vary; but they generally follow a common thread. Property owners have an obligation to keep their land and buildings safe for authorized visitors of any kind. As a visitor on someone else’s land, you expect a certain level of safety and accommodation on behalf of the property owner.

Unsafe premises are dangerous and they may put you at risk for severe personal injuries. Even if your case seems cut and dry, you’re going to want an experienced team of legal experts behind you every step of the way. This isn’t something that you should attempt to brave alone. Legal matters are almost always convoluted and difficult to understand, even if they seem elementary in nature. Plus, if you’re going up against a local landlord with a lot of resources, you may be contending with some of the best legal representation in your area. This is where The Ward Law Group comes in.

The Ward Law Group has nearly a decade of experience, handling every variation of insurance claim that you can imagine. These claims range from boating accidents to slip-and-falls, premises liability cases, and so much more. Our team knows the correct steps to take when it comes to locking down the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.

In addition to our best-in-class legal assistance, we also offer our services to both the English- and Spanish-speaking communities. With The Ward Law Group, your native language is never a barrier. Start your claim off on the right foot by contacting us today!

Common Types of Premises Liability Claims that We Settle

One of the most common forms of premises liability cases that we handle results from slip and fall accidents. In fact, more than 8 million emergency room visits result from slip and fall injuries annually. Aside from slip and fall accidents, here are some of the most common premises liability claims that we settle:

  • Retail Store Liability: Stores are responsible for maintaining a safe environment when you go shopping in them. Unsafe practices include putting heavy items above 6 ft in the air or not leaving enough room to navigate the sales floor properly.
  • Animal & Dog Bites: Lack of adequate signage to warn of dangerous animals may give you the right to compensation in a premises liability case.
  • Negligent or Inadequate Security: For example, this includes staying in a hotel that does not fix broken locks on doors. This puts you in an extremely vulnerable position to would-be burglars who want nothing more than to harm you and steal your credit card information.

These are just a few examples, however. Other forms of premises liability claims may include:

  • Swimming pool injury
  • Dangerous property
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Restaurant liability
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • …and much more.

Of course, this is only to name a few. Speak with your attorneys to find out if your claim constitutes as a premises liability case.

Types of Premises Liability Injuries & Compensation

As with any personal injury, your ailments may be minor, or they may be life-threatening. Of course, all of this is going to depend on the nature of your case and the circumstances surrounding your incident. Aside from intangibles such as psychological and emotional trauma, a possible list of injuries include:

When you suffer from the negligence of another party, you’re going to need a team of expert lawyers behind you every step of the way. With the right legal team behind you, you may find yourself receiving the following forms of compensation:

  • Property Damage: Usually, this includes any personal articles that you were carrying that ended up being damaged at the time of the incident. This includes items such as clothing, jewelry, handheld electronics, and more.
  • Medical Bills: This usually refers to bills for doctors or hospital visits, but it may cover more depending on your needs. You may also be covered for physical therapy, surgery, inpatient care, and much more.
  • Lost Wages & Earning Capacity: Lost wages are any wages that are lost while you were recovering from your personal injury. On the flip side, lost earning capacity refers to instances where a permanent injury has affected your ability to excel in your line of work.
  • Psychological Distress: This takes what you can’t see into consideration. As such, it includes mental ailments such as emotional distress or psychological trauma.

The Ward Law Group has successfully recovered millions of dollars in personal injury cases for victims of premises liability negligence. With nearly a decade of experience, you know that you’re going to be in the right hands. Contact us today!

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident

One of the most important elements of a successful claim or lawsuit is timing. Immediately after an accident happens, you should always contact any relevant insurance companies and open a claim. If you intend on suing the negligent property owner, then you should consider your state’s statute of limitations. Many states require that you file a lawsuit within a certain time period. If you fail to within this time constraint, you may not have a case at all.

You’re also going to want to get in touch with an attorney who will handle all contact between the property owner, insurance companies, and yourself. During this step, you should get medically evaluated within two weeks of the incident. The sooner you complete this evaluation, the more convincing this will serve as evidence in a court of law.

If you contact an attorney from the scene or shortly thereafter, he or she will likely send investigators to the location of the accident to collect photographic evidence, police reports, witness statements, and much more. While this is happening, your legal team will be able to help you obtain a report of damages caused to you, while also submitting the required paperwork to your insurance company.

You should also provide your insurance company with additional information that showcases the nature of your injuries. Furthermore, your legal team will need to establish any lost wages and earning capacity as a direct result of the incident. Make sure that during this timeframe you also hold onto any receipts relevant to the injuries sustained as a result of the accident. This includes visits to the hospital and other various medical expenses. Doing so will help cement your case against the negligent property owner during your claim.

All around amazing!

The Ward Law Group made sure that I got the medical care I needed and kept me informed the entire way. They showed that they truly care about their clients.  I only wish I knew about them when my husband was in a car/motorcycle accident last year.
