Slip-And-Fall Accidents: The Most Common Premises Liability Claim
Perhaps the most common type of premises liability claim is a slip-and-fall accident claim. In the past, slip-and-fall accident attorneys were required to show that the slippery surface had been there for a long time and that the property owner had failed to address it. The law has changed and put the burden on the property owner to show that the spill had not been there a long time and that nothing could have been done to prevent the accident. They may not be able to show that because they were negligent, and we will prove it.
We are willing to go to trial in these cases, and we have earned an impressive record of success. The Kentucky Trial Court Review ranked Kenneth R. Haggard among the top 25 in terms of the number of personal injury cases tried.
Other Premises Liability Claims
Not all premises liability claims come from falls on spills and wet floors. We have handled cases involving improperly stacked merchandise falling on customers of businesses. We have handled cases involving staircase accidents, swimming pool accidents and more.
