Louisville Premises Liability Lawyer

Kentucky Slip-and-Fall Lawyer

Property owners should be held responsible when visitors suffer serious injuries. Cases against negligent property owners are referred to as premises liability claims. At the office of Joseph C. Souza, member of the law firm of Ackerson & Yann, PLLC, we can handle these claims. In fact, we have more than 35 years of experience that we use to see that victims are compensated for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other costs caused by accidents on dangerous property.

Slip-and-Fall Accidents

The most common type of premises liability case involves the slip-and-fall accident. These are cases in which a property owner leaves a leak or a spill unattended to, and a visitor to the property slips and falls, causing a serious personal injury. Trip-and-fall accidents are similar in that a property owner leaves a foreign object in a walkway and a visitor trips over it.

These accidents can happen at grocery stores, gas stations, department stores, shopping centers, restaurants, bars and other businesses. They can also happen at apartment buildings and other people's houses.

Other Premises Liability Accidents

While many property owners go to great lengths to keep visitors safe, there are a surprisingly large number of ways a negligent property owner can cause a serious injury. We can handle cases involving:

  • Objects falling from shelves
  • Falling shelves
  • Staircase accidents
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Negligent security accidents

These cases may involve property owners ignoring building codes and letting dangerous stairs remain in disrepair. They can involve failing to install security lighting to deter criminal activity. They can involve failing to put a fence up around a swimming pool. We can take action in any of these circumstances and more.
