So much of our focus with regard to Bike Week has been about auto accidents. This makes sense since with the increased number of people in the area and the increased amount of vehicles on the road, auto accidents are more likely. Earlier in the week, for instance, a drunk driver in a pickup truck hit three pedestrians near a Bike Week venue. Thankfully all three of the victims are expected to survive their injuries and the driver of the truck is being held legally accountable.
Should an event such as this befall you or a loved one, having a personal injury attorney on your side is crucial for seeking compensation for injuries and other losses. Yet with so many people visiting town, there's another matter we want to address with regard to Bike Week: avoidable injuries at businesses.
About Premises Liability Lawsuits
When you are on another person's property, especially a business, there is a certain expectation that you will not be harmed from simply being on the premises. Yet there are potential hazards to consider in any place of business, including slippery floors, exposed electrical wires, falling objects, and so forth. To a certain extent, improper or unsanitary food preparation that leads to illness also applies since one expects restaurants and food purveyors to provide goods that are not harmful.
If you are injured by any of the various hazards at a business and believe that the owner of the business was negligent in his or her duty to prevent such an incident from occurring, our legal team will be able to help you receive compensation for your injuries.
Why Premises Liability Lawsuits Are So Important
Premises liability lawsuits allow clients to cover medical bills, unearned wages, and other kinds of losses that were sustained as a result of an injury on another person's property. Our slip and fall attorneys will pinpoint negligence by property owners, whether they be tripping hazards or unsecured objects that can cause head injuries. By holding business owners accountable, we ensure that reasonable safety standards are met and that others do not have to be victims of such harm.
How This Applies to Visitors for Bike Week
With so many people in town for Bike Week, many businesses experience a bit of a boom, with lots of foot traffic and people on the sales floor. While the amount of customers can be overwhelming, that is no excuse for having slippery surfaces or objects laying around that can contribute to accidents. Yet with more people present, the more likely such incidents occur. We will make sure that justice is served.
