Experienced Lawyers Focused On Helping The Injured

Serious injuries often come in mundane packaging: a broken handrail, degraded sidewalks, or shredded and frayed carpet. Any of these seemingly common circumstances can cause major injuries. In these cases, it can be hard to ask for help. But, just because there was not an intent to hurt you does not mean someone is not responsible for your injuries.

Property owners, business owners, and even cities and towns are responsible for their property. When they fail to meet these responsibilities, the law provides protections for the injured. The Carleton Shoenfelt & Chapman, legal team has years of experience helping the injured. Speak with an attorney who will eagerly fight for your compensation.

What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is a legal responsibility held by businesses, governments and individuals to provide reasonably safe environments for visitors to their space. These parties are responsible for reasonably maintaining and repairing any element that can prove dangerous. This often seems abstract. Below are some examples:

  • A major chain store fails to repair dangerous roof damage after a storm
  • A small-business owner improperly lights their parking lot
  • A landlord does not repair a set of broken stairs
  • A homeowner does not properly fence in or secure a large dog

You can obtain compensation for injuries and lasting damage caused by dangerous property through a personal injury claim. There is a path for justice.
