Accidents Caused On Dangerous Premises

Dangerous premises can mean different things to different people. Slip-and-fall accidents, animal attacks or even injuries caused by criminal activity can all be traced back to negligence on the part of a property owner or manager.

At Jeffrey R. Morgan & Associates, we have a thorough understanding of Kentucky premises liability law. The state has developed legislation and legal nuances that might confuse an individual who is simply trying to answer questions honestly. As your lawyer, we can provide guidance and representation throughout the legal process — and ensure that you don't damage the strength of your case in your attempt to truthfully answer questions.

Negligence And Inattention Can Lead To Accidents

Premises liability cases are often known as trip-and-fall or slip-and-fall accidents. This type of accident can be caused by numerous factors, such as:

  • Cracked pavement
  • Uneven sidewalks
  • Torn carpeting
  • Broken tiles
  • Broken stairs
  • Faulty handrails
  • Products stacked in department store aisles
  • Wet floors in a grocery store
  • Slippery surfaces in the workplace

A property owner or manager has a duty to ensure the safety of visitors. Whether through negligence such as cost-cutting measures, or simple inattention, these dangerous premises can lead to broken bones, torn ligaments, ruptured tendons, head injury, muscle sprain or back injuries.
