Premises liability matters must be handled right away

We will gladly help you to do this when we represent you in one of these cases.

Indoor conditions can often invite slip-and-fall accidents

Indoor slip-and-fall accidents can often be prevented if property owners take action. There are several things that are hazardous indoors that these individuals should watch for.

Snow and ice are difficult to walk across. In fact, some people who aren't very steady on their feet, such as the elderly, might have more of a risk of falling on these surfaces.

Know how to respond to a shopping injury over the holidays

Now that the holiday season is here, people are going to be heading out into the shopping centers and stores in droves to get gifts and other merchandise that is necessary for the season. The increase in crowd sizes and perceived need to rush during this season can be a catastrophic combination.

Think about way a store accident can impact your life

You never expect that a shopping trip is going to end with you in the hospital. When an accident does occur on someone else's property, you might be reluctant to take action to get your medical bills paid. This is understandable, but you have to think about why you should be responsible for the cost of something that was someone else's fault.

Remember fire pit dangers as the nights turn cooler

As the evenings get cooler, people might decide to take the chill out of outdoor gatherings by lighting a fire pit. You can find dedicated fire pits for your home, but some people make them in the sand. Either way, everyone around the fire pit should make sure that they remain safe.

Safety must always be a priority at businesses open to the public

Being safe when you are out and about is something that you likely try to do. One thing that you can't control is hazards in stores and other businesses you frequent. When there are hazards present, there is a chance that you might fall and hurt yourself.

Use caution when you are shopping

Going shopping shouldn't be a threat to your safety or life; however, it is possible that you will face certain hazards while you are there. Stores have a duty to do everything possible, within reason, to keep people who are shopping safe. Here are a few things to think about when you are shopping:
