There are numerous possible explanations for your accidental injury on a commercial property, government property or private residential property. Discount store management may have failed to take the necessary precautions to prevent injuries caused by falling merchandise. A shopping mall owner may have had inadequate security personnel and procedures in place before an assault or vehicle accident took place in a parking lot or parking garage. Owners or managers of a supermarket may have failed to clean up a dangerous spill in time to prevent your slip-and-fall accident. A dog owner may have failed to protect passersby from potential bite injuries.
Whatever the precise circumstances of your accidental injury or the death of your family member on someone else’s property, you need legal advice at this time. Ideally, you should consult with an attorney before participating in an investigation or discussing the accident with an insurance claims adjuster. A retail owner or office complex manager may offer you a quick settlement in exchange for a signature from you pledging to seek no further compensation. The urgency with which such people ask you to sign your rights away should tip you off to the importance of talking to a lawyer first.
At the offices of Galligan Law we make it our business to watch out for the rights and welfare of people injured in serious accidents, including car accidents and slip-and-fall accidents. Whenever we have the opportunity, we do what we can to promote safety and urge prevention of accidents through common-sense precautions. However, most people become aware of our knowledge and experience after an accident has occurred. We are well-experienced and ready to hit the ground running in pursuit of the compensation that you need after a serious accident on any type of premises.
We are glad to answer questions about issues of Iowa premises liability. Attorney consultations are free at Galligan Law. Contact us by phone or email. If we represent you, you will not owe attorney fees until and unless we help you obtain compensation.
