Premises Liability

Property owners owe a duty to ensure that their properties are safe. This is particularly true for people who maintain a commercial property and invite or allow others to use the property. When restaurants, malls, shops, or other commercial establishments fail to provide safe premises for their customers, they can be held liable through a premises liability lawsuit. Whiting Hagg Hagg Dorsey & Hagg, LLP, can handle these cases.

Premises liability is a highly specialized area of law, and it is important for anyone who is injured in a slip and fall accident to contact an experienced Rapid City personal injury attorney as soon as possible to have the circumstances of their case reviewed.

Common causes of slip or trip and fall accidents include:

  • Spills
  • Debris or water on floors
  • Cracked, uneven, or improper flooring
  • Poorly lit stairs or parking lots
  • Failure to install handrails on stairs
  • Deteriorating sidewalks
  • Snow covered ice and unnatural accumulations of snow

There could be countless other ways that someone else may be at fault for a fall. Determining negligence in a slip and fall or trip and fall case is often a very fact-specific analysis. Therefore, it’s essential to have your case reviewed by an experienced personal injury attorney to determine whether you have a claim.

The Importance of Evidence

If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip and fall or trip and fall accident, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible. Photographs of the cause of the fall are crucial. Ice and snow can melt and disappear. Changes can be made by property owners or managers after an accident that was their fault to begin with. Documenting the condition is extremely important to capture the condition.

Injury cases can be subject to a strict statute of limitations, meaning that there is a limited amount of time in which you may bring a claim. Also, you should be sure to record as much information as possible about the injury, including taking photographs of the progression of your injury - bruises, casts, scars. Be certain to have a complete evaluation performed by a medical professional, so your injuries are properly diagnosed, treated, and documented. The attorneys at Whiting Hagg Hagg Dorsey & Hagg, LLP, are committed to helping people injured in slip and fall or trip and fall accidents recover from their injuries.
