Attorneys For People Injured On An Unsafe Property

Property owners and contracted management companies are held to high standards regarding maintaining commercial and public properties in safe conditions. Under the law in Kentucky, a property owner may be held financially liable if a customer or visitor is injured or dies as a result of a hazardous condition that could have been identified, removed or repaired.

Premises liability claims (sometimes referred to as slip-and-fall accidents) are becoming increasingly difficult to win in court in Kentucky. Insurance companies know that juries are beginning to limit the property owner's liability and expect the injured party to take more responsibility for avoiding a hazard. However, property owners may still be held liable for an injury or death in a lawsuit if there is evidence that the injured party could not have known about nor avoided the hazard. (A falling light fixture or assault injuries suffered in an unlit business parking lot for example.)

"Not every accident in a store or restaurant will result in a legitimate premises liability injury claim. But if you feel confident that your injury could have been avoided by repairs, removal or warnings about the hazard, it makes sense to talk to an attorney as soon as possible." Attorney Rebecca Northup
