Helping You Hold Negligent Property Owners Accountable When They Cause Injuries

Although there is always the expectation that property owners will take care of the conditions on their property to ensure no one gets hurt, not all property owners are as diligent as they should be. Some fail to ensure that proper or routine maintenance is conducted to remove hazards or other dangers. When a property owner’s negligence causes a property to become a danger to visitors, accidents – as well as injuries – are almost certainly around the corner.

Give us the chance to fight for you.

Representing You Through The Various Types of Premises Liability Cases

A premises owner or manager in Tennessee may be held liable for someone else’s injuries if the accident victim can prove that the establishment had knowledge of dangerous conditions but failed to take action to remove the danger or prevent an accident from occurring. Some forms of dangerous conditions include:

  • Wet floors that cause an individual to slip and fall
  • Rugs, mats, large objects and other tripping hazards that result in trip and falls
  • Lack of security or poor lighting, which favors conditions that lead to an assault on individuals inside a premises or parking lot
  • Poor maintenance of facilities or common areas that lead to falls, burns, electrocution or other serious accidents and injuries
  • Poor maintenance of staircases or entrances into a building that results in a trip and fall
  • Inadequate or absent signage or fencing around a pool to prevent drownings or other pool accidents

Our team of attorneys have seen negligence in its many forms, including the instances above and more. When you work with our team, you will have the opportunity to tell your side of the story so we can fully evaluate what happened, who should be held liable and whether the compensation we seek should include punitive damages. We will fight on your behalf to make sure that the compensation you receive addresses your current financial needs as well as those yet to come.

We Can Help You Hold Business Owners Accountable

Best known for its honky-tonk bars and country music, Nashville’s Broadway Street is a major attraction for locals and visitors alike.

Whether you were struck by a drunk driver while crossing the street, suffered lacerations during a bar fight, broke a bone while slipping on a wet venue floor or you suffered injuries in some other accident, you may be able to hold a specific premises liable for your injuries, depending on the facts of your case.

One of the keys to having a solid case is proving liability. Therefore, evidence and details are of utmost importance. At Powell | Klausing, our team knows what to look for to prove liability.
