North Carolina premises liability law allows for a broad range of negligence actions against business and land owners. If you have been injured because of someone else’s failure to make his or her property safe and secure, contact the personal injury attorneys of Maginnis Law, PLLC.
Basics of Premises Liability Law:
Premises liability claims allow for suits against a negligent party when they fail to remove or protect against a dangerous condition. The lawyers of Maginnis Law, PLLC can help you determine whether you have a valid claim, and, if so, they will aggressively litigate your claim and pursue a full and fair recovery.
If a claim is validly proven, premises liability law allows for personal injury damages including medical expenses, lost wages, permanent disability damages, and pain and suffering. With the help of the attorneys at Maginnis Law, PLLC, you may also be able to prove the business owner’s negligence is “willful and wanton,” which, if established, allows for recovery of punitive damages of up to $250,000.00 or three times your personal injury damages.
While premises liability claims can cover a broad range of negligence, there are certain types of cases which are more common. Examples include:
• Failure of a landlord to remove ice from common areas resulting in personal injury
• Animal attacks caused by the failure to restrain the animal
• Failure to alert the injured party to unsafe conditions such as holes or standing water
• Injuries caused by failure to correct defects to the property such as broken stairs
