Helping Victims of a Slip and Fall Accident
Have you been seriously injured because of a slip and fall on a commercial or residential property? Did a vicious dog cause a serious dog bite injury to you or a family member? Were you hurt because of a negligently maintained property? If so, you may have a premises liability claim against the persons responsible for maintaining that property or controlling that animal. At the law firm of Freeburn & Hamilton, we represent people who have been seriously injured, or whose family members were killed, in accidents on someone else’s property.
In addition to having five office locations, we make house calls. If you are injured and find it difficult to travel, we can come to you.
Property Owner’s Duty to Protect You
Premises liability refers to a property owner’s duty to protect you against a slip and fall accident or another type of dangerous property condition. Property owners, landlords and people responsible for maintaining a property may be liable for injuries that are caused by a negligently created property condition. One common premises liability claim is a serious trip or playground accident. If a person’s negligent conduct injures or kills you or a family member, schedule a free consultation with one of our firm’s experienced personal injury attorneys. From offices in Harrisburg, Lebanon, Gettysburg, Thompsontown and Huntingdon, we serve clients throughout Pennsylvania.
