Slip/Trip and Falls

Slip or trip and fall accidents can happen anywhere and at any time. They can occur at restaurants, on a sidewalk, shopping malls, retail stores, gas stations, hotels, parking lots, or even at someone’s home or at your apartment complex. These falls are not always the fault of the person who falls. There can be numerous circumstances that cause an individual to fall including wet floors, uneven sidewalks, icy parking lots, inadequate lighting, loose payment, defective railing on stairs, defective steps, unsecured wires or cables on the floor, or other defective conditions.

Kentucky law requires property owners to inspect for areas that may be tripping hazards on their premises. If the property owner fails to discover a tripping hazard on their premises and a person is injured as a result of that tripping hazard, the property owner may be negligent due to their failure to discover and subsequently remedy or warn of the tripping hazard.

It is highly recommended that any fall victim photograph the scene of their fall and to also report the fall to any employees on the premises or the property owner as soon as possible after the fall. A Middletown injury attorney can analyze the facts of a fall to determine the viability of one’s injury claim after a fall. They can also investigate the scene of the fall and gather the necessary evidence needed to prove liability against the property owner.

Dog Bites

Almost five million people incur dog bites in the United States annually and nearly one out of five dog bites become infected. Unfortunately, most dog bite victims are children due to their small size. Kentucky holds the owners of dogs that bite strictly liable for the damages the dog causes to someone due to a dog bite. Dog owners cannot claim they accidentally left the gate open or that their dog just slipped off their leash. The owner of the dog is liable to the injury victim even if the dog has never bitten or acted aggressively in the past.

If you have been the victim of a dog bite, a Middletown personal injury attorney can investigate your case to determine if the at fault party has any insurance available to pursue. A Middletown personal injury lawyer can also consult with doctors or psychologists to ensure the insurance company understands the extent of medical and emotional care needed.
