Premises Liability

Property owners and retail businesses are legally responsible for any hazards present on their property that injure others. Whether it’s a slip and fall in the fruit aisle, a head injury from falling debris, or a broken ankle from stepping in a hole in a neighbor’s yard, injuries caused by unsafe conditions result in trips to the emergency room and lost wages. At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd our premises liability attorneys investigate the scene of an accident, collect evidence, and work with medical experts and financial impact analysts in quantifying the impact and extent of your injuries.

You may be in a position to recover financial damages for the injuries you suffered due to hazardous, dangerous premises.

Making Your Case before the Court

It’s not uncommon for a property owner’s insurance company to argue their client did nothing wrong. Often, the injury victim is blamed for ignoring warning signs, causing objects to fall themselves, or failing to take proper precautions to avoid an accident.

With over 24 years of courtroom trial experience, our premises liability lawyers are intimately familiar with the tactics and strategies insurance companies use to obscure the issues and avoid blame. That’s why we work with investigators, taking photos of an accident scene, interviewing witnesses and employees, reviewing safety inspection records, and consulting with architectural and engineering experts as well.

We expose facts, argue facts, and win on the basis of facts. Relentless and thorough, we’re prepared for anything the other side throws at us to avoid blame.

We have the Information You Need

It doesn’t matter what an insurance company or manager at a store told you – you have certain legal rights in civil matters. Before you agree to sign any papers or accept and offer from an insurance company, consult the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd to get the facts and information you need to avoid being taken advantage of. We’ll make sure your claim to financial damages accurately reflects the severity and impact of your injuries rather than a “quick fix” by a claim agent to make a problem go away.
