Negligent Security

Crime is an unfortunate reality of our society. In the absence of sufficient security, innocent people are victimized by criminals. You have a right to safety and security while on another party's property, including safety from assault, robbery, and other crimes. When a property owner fails to take appropriate security precautions, exposing you to a crime of any kind, that property owner can be held liable for negligent security with the help of a premises liability attorney from our firm.

Grounds for a negligent security lawsuit could include insufficient lighting, poor surveillance, inadequately trained security staff, or insufficient barriers to forced entry. If you have suffered an injury or property loss due to negligent security, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Rodman, Rodman & Sandman in Malden, Massachusetts to speak with a Boston-area premises liability attorney who can represent you.

Structural Collapse

When poorly constructed or insufficiently maintained decks, ceilings, staircases, and other structures collapse, they can cause serious injuries to anyone unlucky enough to be present. Head injuries, spinal cord damage, and other permanently disabling injuries are not uncommon in these scenarios. In some cases, a structural collapse may even cause a wrongful death.

These injuries are largely preventable when premises owners take due precautions. When they fail to do so and you are injured, you have a right to be compensated for your injuries and other losses. Seeking this compensation on your own can be difficult, but with the help of a seasoned premises liability attorney, you can expect to see ample compensation without unnecessary delay.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are among the most common causes of premises liability lawsuits, accounting for millions of injuries each year. Slipping hazards can occur almost anywhere, indoors or outdoors and on public or private property. Insufficient lighting, weather-related hazards such as patches of ice, shoddy flooring, potholes, and hard-to-see obstructions are all foreseeable causes of preventable injuries ranging from death or permanent disability to bruises and broken bones. No matter how severe your personal injury is, you deserve full compensation if it was caused by a property owner's negligence. Seek aid from a Rodman, Rodman & Sandman premises liability attorney to make sure that you are repaid for your damages.

Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

Even supposedly domesticated animals sometimes misbehave when their owners and handlers fail to control them. A poorly trained or managed animal is a hazard to everyone who comes into contact with it. A guard dog or other large animal can quickly cause catastrophic injuries if given the opportunity, and many injuries happen each year when uncontrolled animals attack.

The owner of a potentially dangerous animal is responsible for adequately restraining that animal to ensure that it cannot get loose. A dog restrained by a weak leash or short fence, for instance, can get loose in an instant and attack a person walking by on the street. In these instances, the animal's owner is entirely responsible for the damage it causes. Discuss your case with a premises liability attorney if you or a member of your family has been injured by a dog or other dangerous animal. You may be entitled to a large settlement.
