Premises Liability in North Carolina
If you have been hurt as a result of a dangerous condition on someone else's property — whether it was owned by a business or an individual — the owner is generally liable to cover the costs of the injuries you have suffered.
At Asbill Stiles, LLC, we place 100 percent of our focus on helping injured clients in North Carolina. From our Charlotte office, our premises liability attorneys help our clients obtain full and fair compensation for injuries suffered on other party's properties.
Slip and Fall
The slip-and-fall accident is the most common premises liability claim. This can be caused by unkempt sidewalks and storefronts, spilled liquids or food items in grocery stores, or poor lighting in parking lots and storefronts.
Dangerous Conditions and Equipment Malfunctions
Equipment can malfunction in residential and commercial structures, and dangerous conditions can include:
- Collapsing floors and decks
- Poor lighting
- Inadequate security
Construction sites are extremely dangerous environments, filled with accidents waiting to happen. Ladder falls, roof collapses, malfunctioning construction tools, machinery malfunctions, accidents with construction vehicles, objects falling from roofs and ladders and malfunctioning safety gear are just a few of the accidents that can happen to people on construction sites.
Falling Merchandise in Stores
Either through faulty shelving or negligent stacking of items on shelves, we have seen an alarming number of accidents caused by merchandise falling on people in retail stores.
Trial Experience Working for You
A large percentage of our more than 24 combined years of legal experience is specifically trial experience. While many lawyers can spend their entire careers making settlement deals and never setting foot in the courtroom, we know how to win at the trial level. This experience also gives us an edge in settlement negotiations. Since the landowners and their insurance companies know our reputation for winning at trial, they are more willing to make quality settlement offers to avoid having to face us at trial, leading to the best compensation awards possible for our clients.
