Memphis Slip and Falls, Premises Liability, Dog Bites Attorneys
There are times when the negligence or fault of a business or property owner results in injuries to a person visiting that particular party. Slip and falls occur from wet surfaces, including from water, unleveled surfaces, spilled liquids, or objects which can create tripping hazards. Like the driver of an automobile, an owner of the property is required to exercise reasonable care in taking care of their property and to avoid creating situations that may unreasonably subject lawful visitors or occupants to injuries, or even death. As with other types of personal injuries, slip and falls and other types of premises liability cases, including, for example, someone suffering a Burn Injury from a hot substance or malfunctioning equipment, can result in serious personal injury or even death. It is important to contact a Memphis Slip and Fall Attorney or Premises Liability Attorney who understands the intricate issues involved with handling these cases.

Dog Bites are also very prevalent in Memphis, Shelby County, and surrounding areas. Within the last decade, for example, Memphis ranked within the top 30 cities as having the most dog attacks. Owners or custodians of dogs or animals have a duty to reasonably protect the safety of others who may come into contact with these animals. In some instances, the dogs may be known to have dangerous tendencies or worse they may have attacked or bitten their owners or other individuals in the past. This means that if a Dog Bite attack occurs, the animal's owner can be liable through their assets or their homeowner's insurance for allowing such injuries. These attacks are often serious resulting in severe bleeding, fractures, or other injuries, including Brain Injuries and sometimes even mauling deaths. As a Memphis Dog Bite attorney, we can provide you with representation in determining whether you can hold the animal's owner or caretaker responsible for your injuries which may have resulted in not only physical injuries but often economic injuries including medical bills and work losses. Contact us if you have suffered a dog or animal bite injury so that we can protect your valuable rights.
