What You Should Know About Premises Liability
When your car is struck by another, you pull over and exchange insurance information. When you are injured on the job at a construction site or manufacturing plant, you file a workers’ compensation claim. But what do you do when you are injured in an apartment complex, a restaurant, a store, or on other private or public property?
The Knoxville, Tennessee, personal injury law firm of Pryor Priest & Harber will guide you through the process of pursuing a legal claim against negligent property owners. We have helped numerous Tennessee residents who were injured on unsafe premises and have recovered millions of dollars for injured clients.*
Were you injured on a hazardous floor, from inadequate lighting or security, from falling merchandise or from other unsafe conditions on another’s property? We can help you.
Understanding The Premises Liability Process
The first step in a premises liability claim is often a meeting to answer your questions regarding liability and insurance coverage. We then conduct an investigation often in collaboration with an investigator.
If your situation warrants a personal injury claim, we can provide aggressive and experienced legal representation, and we work hard to recover compensation for your injuries. Your case is handled exclusively on a contingency fee basis, so if we do not recover compensation for you, you pay no attorney fees.
Our attorneys have handled premises liability accident cases occurring from a broad range of unsafe circumstances, including:
- Slippery floors in restaurants and stores
- Rain-wetted and icy business entryways
- Inadequate lighting and inadequate security in apartment complexes, condo complexes, office parks, malls, restaurants and other businesses
- Debris- and tree-related accidents
Recent financial recoveries in premises liability cases include $1 million, $200,000 and $225,000 settlements and verdicts.* For a no-charge discussion of your premises liability case and concerns, contact our office.
