Whether you’re in a store, at a hotel, or in an office building, you have the right to expect that the property is safe or, at the very least, to be warned about any non-obvious hazards that could cause you harm. You’d owe this same duty to a visitor in your home — it’s not an unreasonable burden. Lawyers refer to this general idea as premises liability law.
If you’ve been injured because of an accident or attack that occurred on someone else’s property, you can rely on the law firm of Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC for effective representation in the Memphis Tri-State area of western Tennessee, eastern Arkansas, and northern Mississippi.
Injured plaintiffs have the burden of proof in premises liability cases. Unless a thorough, independent investigation gets underway quickly, you may not have the evidence you need to prove your claims. Don’t hesitate to call (901) 466-2006 or contact a Memphis premises liability lawyer today for a free consultation.
There are typically four labels that apply to the visitor of a property.
You could be classified as:
Property owners can be negligent in many different ways. For example, inadequate lighting in a restaurant or hotel parking lot might lead directly to a violent assault. Similarly, a broken rail or stair riser could cause someone to fall and suffer broken bones or a serious back or head injury. In any case, it is important to notify the business or individual who owns the property and to seek appropriate medical attention. You should also try to take photographs and get the names and contact information of any potential witnesses. Our attorneys can act quickly to do these things for you.
Specific types of premises liability cases we handle include:
