Premises Liability



Representing Those Injured by the Negligence of Property Owners

Every person has the responsibility to pay attention to his or her surroundings. In North Carolina we have "contributory negligence," which means that an individual who is even one percent at fault cannot successfully collect on a personal injury claim.

However, property owners also have a responsibility to keep their premises safe. If you were injured because a store employee created a hazard that you couldn't see, you may have a viable premises liability case. The personal injury attorneys at The Law Office of Cliff Brisson, Jr. can help if you live in the Fayetteville & Hope Mills, NC area.

We Help People Who Have Been Injured by the Following:

  • Trip-and-fall accidents: These accidents often involve employees placing things where they shouldn't. We recently represented a client who was injured by tripping over a pallet jack that a Wal-Mart employee had carelessly wheeled into an aisle.
  • Slip-and-fall accidents: Many times, slip-and-fall cases involve slippery liquids on floors. The store managers and employees may have known it was there and failed to post warnings, leaving them open to liability.
  • Dog bites/animal attacks: We represent those who have been bitten by pets or animals. In one case we handled, a woman was not able to restrain her two Rottweilers, and the dogs attacked our client who was holding her puppy.
  • Other types of negligence: We also represent individuals injured by other types of dangerous property conditions in North Carolina.
