Property Owner Responsibility

Property owners such as Walmart are responsible for maintaining their stores and parking lots in a reasonably safe condition for guests. This area of law is known as premises liability. If you are injured due to property owner negligence, you are entitled to compensation for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and permanent injury.

Our lawyers are experienced in handling the following types of accidents:

  • Falls caused by merchandise or pallets in aisles
  • Injuries caused by dangerous conditions in the parking lot, such as cracks or potholes
  • Slip-and-fall accidents caused by water spills, foreign substances or loose mats on floors
  • Injuries caused by falling merchandise
  • Trip-and-fall accidents involving misplaced items inside or outside the store
  • Injuries caused by automatic entrance doors
  • Injuries caused by wrongful detention or altercations involving store personnel

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
