The Skilled Legal Advocacy You Need After Being Injured By Property Owner Negligence
Both private and commercial property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe. They are expected to take reasonable steps to prevent visitors from getting hurt in an accident. When property owners don’t meet this responsibility and someone is injured, they can be held responsible. If you were hurt in an accident on someone else’s property, you may be able to recover financial compensation, but the claims process can be complicated. That’s when it’s time to call Thompson Law in Nashville.
Attorney Christopher “Kim” Thompson has been helping the injured recover the compensation they deserve for decades. He knows the impact an accident can have on victims and their families. He has helped countless other clients, and he can help you, too.
Seeking Compensation After A Slip-And-Fall Or Trip-And-Fall Accident
A slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall can happen anywhere. It could happen at a store, restaurant, hotel, bar, shopping mall, parking lot or someone’s home. The owner of a property or business has a responsibility to take steps to try to prevent these types of accidents, and prevention can be as easy as making a clear walking path or shoveling a sidewalk after a snowfall.
Attorney Thompson starts by getting the facts. These accidents commonly involve the following hazards:
- Wet floors
- Loose floorboards
- Damaged carpeting
- Uneven pavement
- Poor lighting
- Lack of handrails
He looks for hazards like these, reviews all relevant documentation and interviews witnesses. If needed, he consults experts who can explain how the accident happened.
Injuries And Attacks Caused By Inadequate Security
Some types of personal injury cases involve a physical attack. A person is attacked on another’s property and can be left seriously hurt. In many cases, a property owner who failed to provide proper security can be held responsible for what happened.
Property owners have a responsibility to take certain security measures to keep visitors safe. This includes the owners of bars, restaurants, apartment complexes, ATMs, hotels, shopping malls, stadiums, parking lots and parking garages. Security measures can include lighting, fencing, entry points, attendants or security personnel.
When security measures are not taken, it can increase the risk of an attack. Victims are left with physical injuries that require medical attention. These injuries may also require further treatment in the future or leave a victim with a permanent disability. There can be emotional effects that leave victims unable to take part in normal activities. If you’ve been hurt as a result of negligent security, it’s time to call Thompson Law.
Were You Or Your Child Attacked By An Aggressive And Unrestrained Dog?
Coming face to face with an unfriendly dog can be a frightening experience, and the injuries suffered in a dog bite can be very serious. Dogs have powerful jaws that bite down with great force. Even minor bites can leave the victim with scarring or disfigurement. You may need plastic surgery. More severe bites can result in nerve damage or torn muscles. A dog attack can also leave you with emotional and psychological damage.
A dog’s owner is responsible for training the dog and keeping it under control at all times. It doesn’t matter if the attack happened on private or public property. If you’ve been hurt by a dog bite, you deserve financial compensation for your injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Attorney Kim Thompson can help you through the claims process and will work tirelessly to maximize your recovery.
An Attorney Taking On Powerful Insurance Companies
Insurance companies aren’t very sympathetic when you’ve been hurt in an accident. They may question the extent of your injuries. They may dispute the details about how the accident happened. They may even try to blame you for the accident. They do this because they are mainly interested in one thing – protecting their profits.
Before becoming an attorney, Mr. Thompson worked as a claims adjuster and supervisor for insurance companies. As such, he knows all of the tactics they use to try to avoid their responsibility, and he is not fooled or intimidated by them. His focus is on building a strong case that the insurance company can’t ignore. If they are unwilling to settle, you can rest easy knowing that Mr. Thompson has a strong record of success in litigation.
