Those who own or manage a property have specific duties to individuals who lawfully enter and use their property. If one fails to comply with these duties, certain injuries or damages may occur from a slip and fall, which could result in the victim pursuing the owner under a legal theory known as premises liability. Usually, the property owner is the one responsible for injuries or damages caused by the failure to remove dangerous conditions from property. However, it is not always that plain and simple, as determining which party is at fault can be quite complicated.
Let the attorneys at NST work for you. Whether your situation involves an injury suffered on commercial or residential property or hazardous indoor or outdoor conditions, we will fight for your rights. Common injuries in premises liability cases include broken or fractured bones, and in more serious cases, brain injuries or even wrongful death. Fortunately, Arkansas law provides an injured individual the opportunity to recover monetary compensation for items such as medical bills, loss of income, and emotional suffering caused by the property owner’s negligence.Product Liability
Every year, people suffer injuries as a result of products that do not work as intended. Defective products are a part of life, and they come in a variety of forms. Such products range from defectively designed gas tanks, poorly designed consumer goods, and a defective airbag. It may be necessary to retain expert witnesses in order to pursue your case, making it important to speak with a lawyer early in the process. Our attorneys have can help Maumelle residents pursue a product liability claim by consulting with expert witnesses when appropriate.
There are a number of different theories of liability in product liability cases. A case may be based on negligence or strict liability, and may include alleged design defects, manufacturing defects, or failure to properly warn or instruct the plaintiff. Defendants have a number of defenses they may raise in a product liability action. One common defense is that the plaintiff fully understood the specific dangers involved with using the allegedly defective product. The defendant may also argue that there is no legal duty to warn the plaintiff about dangers which are obvious to the user. We understand the arguments a large manufacturer might make and can help devise an effective legal strategy to combat them.Let Our Law Firm Begin Helping You Today
