Scranton Premises Liability

Posted By Patrick M. Rogan || 30-Oct-2009

We've all seen them, right? I'm talking about the warnings on lighters or fuel containers saying, "Caution: Flammable," or on household cleaners saying, "Caution: Do not spray in eyes." Really? Thanks. Accident averted - that was close. I'm sure you have your own favorites.

And don't think that my being a lawyer prevents me from hearing all the lawyer jokes and complaints about how litigious our society has become; I've heard them all.

But the fact is, there are times when a property owner's negligence leads to another person's injuries, and in such cases, hiring a lawyer to help you recover financial damages for medical care, lost wages and pain and suffering might be necessary.

Property owners have a legal obligation to take reasonable action to ensure that their property is free from hazardous situations that could cause injury. If a property owner knows about a hazard and does nothing to fix it or to warn visitors about the danger, then he or she may be held liable in a Scranton premises liability lawsuit.

A Scranton premises liability attorney can help you review the circumstances of your accident and determine whether property owner negligence led to your injuries. Contact a Scranton premises liability lawyer from Rogan Law today for a free initial case evaluation.
