“Premises liability” is a legal term encompassing any case in which a property owner is sued for hazards on their property that caused a serious injury. Most premises liability cases involve slips and falls.

What Is Premises Liability?

Common slip-and-fall accidents include:

  • Holes in pavement causing parking lot or sidewalk accidents
  • Slippery floors causing slips and falls
  • Loose merchandise falling from shelves
  • Lack of Snow Removal

Personal Injury Cases: Car Accidents during the Winter

As January begins and a colder stage of winter is at our doorstep, let us make sure that we take the proper 9precautions in ensuring safety on the roads. Easier said than done, I know. People, road conditions and the weather can prove to be unpredictable (icy pavement, snow, bad brakes, bad tires, driving too fast, making a rushed turn ect), but we want you to know that you are not alone in the case that an accident does occur.

Personal Injury law allows us to aid in the protection of you and your property if injury or damage is done due to conscious or unconscious acts. Automobile accidents are a common area where personal injury actions take place. If you have a “negligence” claim, or in short, the belief that the other individual failed to do something (obey a light, obey a stop sign, drive at the recommended speed ect) to avoid causing the accident, you have a case.

Now lets say the roles are reversed. You caused the accident, but you reasonably believe that it was not entirely your fault. Who pays for damages? Well we have a response for that too. In the case of such an accident, sure you may be negligent in regards to the accident (you were driving too fast, not paying attention on the road ect), but if the jury finds that you were only liable (responsible) for lets say 70% of the injury (arbitrary number) then you’re only liable for paying 70% of the damages. In short, $10,000 in overall damages means you pay $7,000, a substantially less amount.

Different scenario; you are hit by a delivery driver. Who pays for the damages, the delivery driver or the employer of the delivery driver? Well under the law both may be held liable. The employer bares a responsibility for his employees and damages that occur under his or her watch. So if the delivery driver gets into an accident with you while on duty, you may have a case in your hand.

Now there are many scenarios with personal injury cases, but one thing is certain and that is that you are not alone in handling these situations. At the Morano Law Firm we take great pride in providing genuine care and service for our clients. If you have been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to medical care, property damage repairs and of course a cash settlement. We handle many of these types of cases on a contingency basis, meaning we only get paid if you get paid.  If you have any concerns or questions, regarding a case or other inquiries feel free to call Mr. Morano at 201-598-5019 or send us a message on our “Contacts” section on the top right of the home page. We are eager to hear from you.
