Accidents On Dangerous Property

Property owners have an obligation to ensure their premises are safe for visitors, renters and patrons. When they fail to exercise proper care, severe injuries can result. At Atwood, Holsten, Brown, Deaver & Spier, we help people throughout Nebraska who have been injured on dangerous property.

Our lawyers have helped injured individuals pursue premises liability claims for accidents involving:

  • Falls from balconies, stairways, roofs and other high places
  • Slip-and-fall injuries occurring in nursing homes, shopping centers, office buildings, schools and government buildings
  • Shooting accidents and assaults in homes, schools and public parks
  • Escalator and elevator accidents
  • Dog bites and other animal attacks
  • Robbery and assault, including sexual assault, caused by insufficient security
  • Injuries caused by fire, flood or other natural disaster
  • Amusement park accidents involving dangerous rides or other attractions

What If The Property Owner Is A Friend Or Relative?

Many people hesitate to file a claim after an injury on a friend's or loved one's property. It is normal to have doubts about "suing" someone you know and care about. However, the losses and expenses associated with these injuries are still significant, and you may need help paying medical bills or compensating for lost work.

It is important to realize that homeowners and businesses carry insurance for exactly these situations. In most cases, you are not seeking compensation from the property owner but from his or her insurer. We encourage you to contact us to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney about any additional concerns you may have.
