Have You Been Injured Due To Someone Else’s Negligence?
Accidents are rare. The idea of an accident implies that no one is at fault and nothing could have been done to avoid the accident or mitigate the damages that result from it. In reality, however, most accident cases involve fault somewhere. In product liability and premises liability claims, someone was negligent, and that negligence created a danger that should not have been present in the first place.
When someone else’s negligence results in injuries, you deserve to be compensated for your losses.

Product liability involves products that are produced and sold in the marketplace. When there are design defects, manufacturing defects or failure to warn of a product’s dangers, the injured party can bring a legal claim for compensation to cover all losses and damages.
Some common products involved in product liability claims can include:
- Lawnmowers and other lawn and garden tools
- Power tools
- Kitchen appliances
- Faulty brakes, seat belts and other defective automobile parts
- Children’s toys, cribs and other child-related items that are inherently dangerous
These are just a few of the common products that can be dangerously defective.
Talk to our attorneys if you have been injured by a product. Even if you were using the product incorrectly when you were hurt, that does not necessarily preclude the possibility of obtaining compensation for your injuries and losses. Our lawyers can look at your case and help you determine the best way to proceed.
Premises liability is much like products liability, except that it involves injuries resulting from dangerous conditions present on properties.
There are numerous scenarios involving premises liability, including:
- Dangerous walkways
- Dangerous staircases
- Dangerous parking lot conditions
- Slip-and-fall accidents in stores and restaurants
- Inadequate security leading to muggings and assaults in bars and other public places
- Failure to warn customers or guests of a dangerous condition
Property owners and managers are responsible for the safety of their properties. If there is any kind of dangerous condition resulting from negligent upkeep or a spill that they knew about or should have known about, property owners can be held liable for any accidents and injuries that occur as a result.
