Accidents that occur on public premises, for example on streets, in public buildings or parks, or on public transportation, can happen for any number of reasons. Most often poor design, lack of proper maintenance, substandard construction, clutter, and slippery surfaces are just some of the circumstances that can lead to an unfortunate personal injury accident.
Although they have an obligation to keep their buildings, grounds, and facilities safe and in good working order, property owners and landlords, including local, state and federal governments and their insurance companies aggressively resist personal injury claims for accidents that occur on public premises.
But you should not have to suffer both injury and financial hardship if negligence has caused an accident that could have been prevented. Redding personal injury lawyers Barr and Mudford, who have successfully handled many cases involving accidents on public premises, can help.
Our Experience Makes the Difference
State and federal governments enjoy certain immunities when it comes to liability for accidents that happen on their properties, and the claims process in public premises legal action is more complex than in many other personal injury situations.
