Knoxville Premises Liability Injury Attorney

Jacksboro Premises Liability Injury Attorneys

Lawyer in Knox County for Victims of Slip and Fall Accidents

In the area of personal injury law, there is a great deal of attention given to car, truck, and other motor vehicle accidents, and with good reasons. Each year, hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of victims are hurt in traffic accidents in the United States, many of whom are seriously injured. What you may not realize, however, is that falls actually represent the leading cause of non-fatal injuries that require medical attention throughout the country. According to federal estimates, some eight million adults and children go to the emergency room annually as the result of slips, trips, and falls.

At The Law Office of William F. Evans, our experienced personal injury lawyer represents those who have been injured on someone else’s property. We can help you collect compensation for your injuries under the doctrine of premises liability.

Understanding Premises Liability in Tennessee

Premises liability refers to the responsibility of a property owner to keep visitors and guests safe while they are on the property. According to premises liability laws, property owners—or occupants, in certain cases—have a duty of care to prevent possible injuries by taking reasonable precautions and making reasonable efforts to address dangerous conditions. Property owners must take care to eliminate potential hazards whenever possible and to notify and warn visitors when a hazard cannot be completely eliminated. If the owner fails to do either of these, he or she could be held liable for any injuries that are sustained as a result.

At our law firm, we realize that premises liability injuries include more than just falls. With our knowledge and experience, we are equipped to handle a full range of premises liability cases, including:

  • Slip and fall accidents and trip and fall accidents
  • Injuries caused by falling merchandise or equipment
  • Injuries caused by uneven walkways, damaged floors, or missing tiles
  • Accidents or injuries caused by poor lighting or inadequate security
  • Dog bites and other animal attacks
  • Daycare, childcare, and school injuries
  • Swimming pool injuries
  • Injuries sustained on a playground or at a park

Whether your accident happened at another person’s home, a grocery store, a shopping center, a municipal or government building, or a private business, we will help you seek the compensation you need to put your life back on track.

Building a Case for Compensation

From the moment you call us, you become a part of our team. Our phones are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so that we can get right to work on your behalf. We recognize that time is of the essence when it comes to preserving important evidence. For example, it is not uncommon for security cameras to record a slip and fall or trip and fall only for a recording to be recorded over or erased before it can be recovered and saved. Acting quickly could be the difference between collecting the compensation you need and recovering nothing.

Our team will fully investigate your accident and the circumstances that led to it so that we can determine exactly what happened and the party or parties who may share in the liability for your injuries. Along the way, we will communicate openly and honestly with you, keeping you up to date on the progress of your case. Our client-first approach has helped us secure favorable outcomes for many clients throughout East Tennessee, and we are prepared to put our experience and skill to work for you.
