Trenton Premises Liability Lawyers
Injured on Commercial or Residential Property? We Can Help
When you are a property owner, you have certain safety responsibilities to anyone who is on your property. If you are a homeowner, you are responsible for restraining your dog. If you are a commercial building owner, you must keep sidewalks, stairways and lobbies in good repair to prevent slip-and-fall accidents. If you are the contractor on a construction site, you are responsible for meeting OSHA standards.
When property owners are at fault, our Trenton premises liability attorneys can work with you on a personal injury lawsuit or workers’ compensation claim to obtain a settlement for your injuries and damages. At Edward S. Kahn Law Offices, LLC, our personal injury lawyers have the experience to achieve settlements on our clients’ behalf, and a compassionate and understanding approach with our clients.
Representative case: A construction accident resulted in multiple compression fractures in our client’s thoracic spine and internal injuries. Our client was awarded $14 million by a jury in compensation for the loss of control of bodily function.
Mercer County Dog Bite Attorneys
You may have heard of dangerous breeds of dogs such as pit bulls and Rottweilers. However, a 2008 study by the University of Pennsylvania researchers determined that Chihuahuas and Dachshunds were the most aggressive breed and the Jack Russell terrier was third. The pit bull was sixth on the list and was found to be more aggressive to other dogs, than to people.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported that dog bites are the second highest reason for children to seek emergency treatment. Regardless of the breed, homeowners are responsible for keeping others safe from their pets. We represent individuals who have been mauled, bitten or in other ways injured by a dog or other pet.
Slip-and-Fall Injuries in Commercial Buildings
Shopping malls, office buildings as well as convenience stores, your dentist’s office and your employer’s facilities are required to meet certain safety standards.
Representative case: Our client was injured in a slip-and-fall accident while at work that resulted in a herniated disc and spinal fusion. Our law firm obtained a $1.6 million jury verdict.
A slip-and-fall accident can be caused by:
- Broken stairs
- Cracked or broken tile
- Icy sidewalk
- Missing handrails on stairs
- Uneven elevator entrance doors
- Wet floors
