If you're hurt in Henderson County, call personal injury attorney Jeff Weinstein
An accident that leaves you injured can happen at any time. Your medical bills can add up fast. You may even have to miss time from work, resulting in less income. If your injury happened because a property owner was negligent, you may be able to recover financial compensation. Attorney Jeff Weinstein of Weinstein Law in Athens, Texas can help.
Whether the property is private or commercial, owners have a responsibility to keep the premises safe. This includes taking reasonable steps to prevent people from getting hurt. This responsibility is also referred to as premises liability. Owners can be held liable if they don't meet this responsibility and someone is injured as a result.
There are many types of accidents that fall under premises liability, including slip and fall accidents, swimming pool accidents, assaults due to negligent security and dog bites. A premises liability accident can happen at:
- Private homes
- Grocery stores
- Big-box stores
- Parking lots
- Hotels and motels
But recovering compensation in a premises liability case is complicated. Property owners usually deny doing anything wrong. They'll insist that they took all the proper measures to protect visitors. They may even try to pin the blame for what happened on you. For example, they'll say you were careless or acting recklessly.
And insurance companies don't care about you. They'll gladly take the side of the property owner, because they don't want to pay you anything. Maybe they'll make you a lowball settlement offer, hoping you'll take it and go away. But you can bet it will fall far short of covering the total damages you have suffered.
