If a visitor or tenant incurred an injury, the owner of the property may be liable (legally responsible) if it can be proven that their negligence (actions or failure to act) led to the injury. If you have suffered an injury which you believe to be the result of negligence of another, you may be entitled to compensation.
Construction companies (contractors and subcontractors) have an obligation to maintain a safe environment for their workers and the public. However, far too many times, in an effort to cut costs and save money, safety takes a back seat and people get hurt. For employees many times their only source of recovery for injuries sustained on the job is very limited worker’s compensation. Therefore, employees may be able to sue the owner and/or the general contractor seeking compensation because they also have obligations under the law to maintain a safe work environment. Remember, big business would never act to safeguard society unless there was a financial consequence. If the cost of being safe becomes a more financially sound business decision than cutting corners and putting people at risk, then people are less likely to get injured.
If you have been bitten or attacked by an animal, you may have a right to be compensated for your injuries by the owner of the animal. This can be regardless of provocation and/or propensities of the animal. The law places a burden on the owner of animals to protect the people their animals come in contact with.
Lead poisoning is very common and damaging to young children. Exposure to lead-based paint is the primary source of lead poisoning. The health risks posed by lead-based paint are serious. For a child, even the tiniest amount of lead-based paint is potentially hazardous. Since no amount of lead is safe in the body, even brief exposure can lead to disastrous results in terms of a child’s physical and mental development.
Landlords have a responsibility to ensure proper living conditions for their tenants, which includes having premises free from any kind of unhealthy mold contamination. If you are a tenant, and have discovered any mold in your rented premises, then it is the duty of the landlord to get the mold removed and pay for any such removal. Landlords who fail to make their property free from unhealthy mold contamination, may be sued by their tenants. Anyone that feels that they or their loved ones may have been affected by exposure to toxic mold should seek immediate medical attention.
Toxic mold can result in a wide range of medical problems. Mild symptoms include a runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, watery eyes, skin rash and itching (dermatitis). Far more serious problems can include severe allergies, asthma exacerbation, respiratory cases can also prove fatal. It is vital that anyone that thinks they may have been affected by toxic mold seek medical assistance without delay.
Remember it is important that a tenant complain as often as possible to a landlord or a landlord’s agent as soon as they notice an unhealthy mold condition. The landlord must know of the condition and fail to act in order to become liable for any injuries resulting from that inaction.
Many of our family members and loved ones need the type of care that can only be provided by a nursing home or other assisted living care facility. These institutions have a legal obligation to insure their patients are well provided for. Often the heartless facilities efforts to cut corners and make more money leads to improperly trained staff, understaffing and negligence. All of which can lead to abuse of nursing home and assisted living patients. If you have a family member or loved one who has been the victim of such negligence or abuse let us help.
When a person dies because of the negligence or malpractice of another person, the family of the victim can bring a claim for wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party. Though nothing can bring loved ones back, holding the negligent person or party accountable for their wrongful actions can provide some measure of solace.
If you are seriously injured due to an assault by another person, you may be entitled to compensation from that person or an entity that may have allowed that assault to occur (such as a bar with security to prevent such assaults). These types of cases are considered intentional torts because they do not happen accidentally and, depending on the jurisdiction, may carry a shorter statute of limitations (meaning less time to file a claim). Therefore, it is important to act quickly.
