Premises liability includes those injuries that occur on someone else’s property or as a result of someone else’s property. Common cases include:
- Slip-and-fall injury
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Marina negligence
- Electric shock drowning
- Dog bite/animal bites
- Negligent security
- Falling objects
When you are injured as a result of someone not taking the proper care on their property, then you have a right to pursue a claim for your injuries. Not taking proper care may mean a lack of safety equipment, not controlling a dangerous animal, improper lighting or security measures or faulty equipment and premises in a facility.
Whenever negligence leads to an injury or death, then the claim should be evaluated. At O’Brien Batten & Kirtley, PLLC, our team of attorneys has over 80 years of combined experience litigating personal injury claims, including those involving premises liability.
Electric Shock Drowning
Within our personal injury practice, we were some of the first attorneys in the United States to pursue electric shock drowning claims on behalf of families against marinas. Electric shock drowning is a little-known but completely preventable tragedy that occurs every summer on lakes and rivers across the United States.
Most commonly, it occurs to children or adults who are swimming off the back of boats in a lake at marinas or who are swimming near a dock that has electricity. Despite the fact that there have been several deaths from electric shock drowning, many marinas and docks refuse to take precautions to prevent these senseless acts from occurring.
When a marina’s negligence causes a death or injury, it should be held accountable. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of electric shock drowning or other marina negligence, please consider contacting us today for more information.
