Raleigh Premises Liability Personal Injury Litigation Lawyer

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

Within the last year alone, the lawyers of Maginnis Law, PLLC have handled multiple premises liability claims, including claims involving injuries at a national hardware store and a local apartment complex. Two of the most common premises liability situations involve inadequate security claims and slip and fall personal injuries:

Inadequate Security:

Business owners may be held responsible for criminal conduct on their property if they negligently fail to make the property secure. Many inadequate security cases involve an individual being assaulted by a criminal while visiting properties such as night clubs, parking decks, hotels, shopping malls, restaurants, and other places of business.

Slip and Fall:

Slip and fall cases involve personal injury to a claimant caused by a business owner’s failure to maintain their property. Common examples include falls caused by a landlord’s failure to remove ice or a business owner’s failure to remove standing water.
