I Fell On An Electrical Cord

I Fell On An Electrical Cord

Premises liability refers to the owner’s legal responsibility to persons injured on his or her property.

Did you trip and fall on an electrical cord that was in the wrong place at the wrong time? Were you injured? Tripping and falling are common accidents that can result in serious injuries, such as broken bones, fractured hips, spinal cord injury, brain injury, back injury and muscle and ligament injury – just to name a few.

Slip, trip and fall injuries are the second leading cause of injury in the United States.

Often, the accident is caused as a result of the negligence on the part of the property or business owner. The law requires that person to keep his or her property free from any hazards; they are responsible to keep their property in a reasonable and safe condition.

When a property or business owner doesn’t exercise proper caution, they may be liable to compensate you for your injuries. Some hazards are:

  • Exposed electrical cords, wires, cables
  • Failure to provide proper lighting
  • Failure to provide adequate hand rails
  • Wet flooring
  • Failure to replace worn carpeting
  • Failure to place signs in dangerous areas

If you tripped and fell on an exposed electrical cord, you may be entitled to compensation for your injury. Contact the San Bernardino personal injury attorneys at Welebir | Tierney to discuss the merits of your case.
