Property Owners And Managers Must Keep Properties Safe

Premises LiabilityIf you have been injured on public or private property, such as a retail shopping center, in an office building, or in a public parking lot, you may be entitled to receive compensation that will cover the cost of your medical expenses and lost earnings during recovery. North Carolina laws are clear that property owners have an obligation to provide a reasonable amount of security and safety for patrons of their business. Stores that have security cameras inside but don't bother to provide adequate security for patrons in the parking lot can be held liable for physical assaults and injuries that occur as a result. Additionally, nursing homes must take special care to ensure the safety of residents who may suffer from vision, memory, and hearing disabilities.

Attorney Christopher R. Nichols has over 20 years of trial experience recovering compensation for people injured in slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents, as well as other premises liability cases. We believe that a jury can recognize the difference between a serious injury that should have been prevented and a frivolous lawsuit.

If you have been injured on somebody else's premises, first ask yourself whether the accident was caused by negligence on the part of the property owner. If you think the accident could have been prevented with reasonable precautions, please contact us at Nichols Law Firm to schedule a no-cost consultation about your claim.
