Fires: Has your house or property been damaged by a fire. We can help you when your insurance company is avoiding payment for the damage. Please give us a call.
Dog Bites: Owners are responsible for the actions their dogs take. If a dog bit you and caused any injuries, a lawsuit would be an excellent way to protect your rights and protect yourself financially. Canine saliva can contain bacteria that cause a myriad of health issues in humans. We’ve found that the bite’s ramifications are often worse than the physical appearance of the wound. We can prove the animal’s owner failed to keep it on a leash, properly train it, and keep up with shots.
Slip and fall incidents: Property owners must keep their building and the surrounding grounds free from obstacles and slip hazards. By law, any slips, trips, or falls can be the property owner’s fault. The trick is establishing that the owner did not take all the necessary precautions to avoid the accident. Examples include not salting a sidewalk before a winter storm and leaving yard work tools lying on walking paths.
Elevator accidents: Maintaining an elevator is a lot of work, but business owners must put effort into ensuring all components are up to code. Elevator accidents can be fatal, but they can also cause minor yet chronic conditions. Therefore, if you were involved in a mishap on an elevator, we strongly encourage you to reach out to Saxton Law Firm. We can identify whether the property owner skipped any regulatory steps during inspections, and more.
Escalator accidents: Much like elevators, escalators are high-maintenance transportation devices. Some business owners might neglect inspections, repairs, and routine maintenance due to the cost involved with these actions. Saxton Law Firm thoroughly investigates escalator-related accidents and injuries to determine whether a business owner should have done anything differently. Establishing negligence or carelessness is crucial, and we know how to do it.
