Russell & Hill, PLLC

The specifics of premises liability laws vary from one state to another. Generally, though, these laws are based on the legal principle that a property’s owner or occupier has a duty to monitor their property for hazards that can cause accidents resulting in injury. Property owners must address dangers in a timely manner so that they do not pose a threat to guests and anyone else with a legal right to be on the premises. When a hazard cannot be eliminated, precautions must be taken to minimize the chances of allowing someone to be harmed.

Some property owners don’t fulfill this duty. You may have been injured due to such a property owner’s carelessness.

If you have been injured in a slip and fall or trip and fall accident, get in touch with an Edmonds, Washington premises liability attorney at Russell & Hill, PLLC. You could be eligible to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other such losses.

Edmonds, WA Premises Liability Accidents

Accidents resulting from a property owner’s negligence can take many forms. The following are just a few examples:

  • A customer at a store slips on snow or ice in the parking lot
  • A customer at a store or restaurant slips over a recently mopped floor because an employee did not put out a sign indicating it was still wet
  • Someone trips over an unseen obstruction in the parking lot of a business at night because the property owner did not install adequate outdoor lighting
  • Someone knocks an item off its shelving at the grocery store, but because no employees are actively looking out for such hazards, a customer trips over it
  • Guests on a property are injured in a fire that started because the property owner did not upgrade or repair their wiring after being advised that doing so is necessary

This is not an exhaustive list. Even if none of the examples above describe your case, if you suspect you would not have been injured in an accident on someone else’s property had they not been careless, schedule a meeting at our Edmonds premises liability law firm to find out if you have grounds to take legal action.
