Vermont and New Hampshire Premises Liability Lawyer
There are laws in place that protect visitors to public and private property. Property owners and managers at grocery stores, apartment buildings, public schools and parks, private hospitals, shopping malls, and private homes have a responsibility to provide a safe environment to visitors.
Dangers that often lead to accidents include:
- Dangerous chemicals
- Electrical hazards
- Broken steps
- Unmarked obstructions
- Poor lighting
Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability accident. Injuries resulting from crimes due to negligent security may also be considered violations of premises liability laws. When there are inherent dangers present, it is the duty of the owner or property manager to repair the problem in order to reduce or eliminate the risk of serious personal injury.
After an Accident on Dangerous Premises
The period of time following an accident on dangerous premises can be confusing, but it is essential that you act quickly if you feel someone is to blame. If you have been injured in a public place, it is important to file an accident report with the manager on duty and seek medical attention immediately.
If possible, you should take photos of the accident site and get the contact information of any witnesses who are present. Once you have been treated for your injuries, you should contact experienced New Hampshire and Vermont premises liability lawyers immediately so that evidence at the accident site can be collected before it gets altered by the negligent party. Often, property owners may make quick repairs in order to avoid accountability for their negligent actions.
