It goes without saying that your safety should be unquestionable on someone else's property, especially when that property is a public location or the apartment complex in which you live.
Gelch & Associates, P.A. is proud to represent clients who fall victim to the negligent security or dangerous environment of a property they do not own. We believe that if you've suffered due to the carelessness of another, you are owed compensation for medical expenses, lost work time and any other costs you've incurred from the incident.
Our firm will guide you through the process of obtaining that compensation, from investigating the circumstances to determining who's at fault to advocating for you in court.
There is a vast array of conditions that might warrant legal action instigated by the injured party. Premises-related injuries include inadequate or faulty security, attacks by dogs and other animals, tripping hazards such as cracks, uneven pavement and obstructions in traffic areas, toxins like lead or mold in the environment, bodies of water without fencing, slipping hazards such as oil, water and other liquids.
Lawfully, injured parties in premises liability lawsuits must show that the accused property owner either neglected the maintenance that would have prevented the injury, or caused the injury directly by creating a dangerous condition. If the property owner was aware of the hazard but decided not to inform visitors or tenants about it, the injured party may also bring that to light.
Gelch & Associates, P.A. is especially concerned about security neglect when children are involved. We will always fight aggressively to make certain that you and your loved ones are fully compensated.
