Liability for lack of protection

A premises liability claim can also be filed if you are hurt in a third party criminal attack. The owner of the property is obliged to keep the premises in reasonably safe condition, and a lack of security on the premises is evidence of negligence. This type of premises liability claim may be filed when the owner has shown a failure to—

  • Properly train security personnel
  • Adequately supervise employees
  • Maintain an active surveillance system
  • Provide emergency first response

Animal owners are also responsible for protecting other people from injury by their own pets:

  • Dog bites
  • Pit bull attacks
  • Dogs who jump up on people causing injury
  • Injuries caused by other animals

Dog Bites

If you have been hurt or bitten by a dog you may have the right to be compensated for your pain, suffering, medical bills, loss of income, emotional distress and other damages. If the bite left a scar you may also be entitled to compensation for the scar and its effect on your appearance. Dog bites can cause severe injury or even death. Bite wounds can become infected. Rabies or gangrene may result. Call us now so that we can help you.

Insurance companies are not charitable institutions—it is in their corporate interest to deny personal injury claims.  If one of their customers causes an accident in which you are injured, you are not in good hands with Allstate, Nationwide is not on your side, and State Farm is not going to be like a good neighbor.  When you have been hurt on someone else’s property, you need the guidance of an experienced Bucks County lawyer.  You will be treated fairly with Paul Weber on your side.  To inquire about legal help with a premises liability personal injury claim, contact the Law Firm of Paul R. Weber.

Worker’s Compensation Claims

If you were hurt at work or while doing your job away from work, you may be entitled to Worker’s Compensation benefits. Under Pennsylvania Worker’s Compensation laws, you may be entitled to receive wage loss benefits, medical benefits, or other benefits. You do not have to prove whose fault the accident was. There is no fee unless we win benefits for you (or stop your benefits from being cut off). Is your employer or worker’s compensation company giving you a hard time? Are you losing time or money from work because of your injury? Call us now so that we can help you.
