Injuries That Take Place on Public Property
It’s a fact of life that accidents happen. Every time you walk out the door of your home, a host of risks can await — namely, injuries to yourself or a loved one. When this happens, you need the services of The Law Office of Lau & Nicolello to get the settlement you deserve for injuries suffered.
First, let’s clarify just what is considered public property. It’s any land or possession owned by the government or one of its agencies that are used by the general public — such as parks, playgrounds, streets, sidewalks, schools, post offices and libraries. Governments at all levels must ensure that public spaces are safe for visitors.
Injury-causing accidents include:
- Slip and falls on public pavements
- Auto accidents as a result of road problems or faulty traffic lights
- Children’s fights in the schoolyard or classroom
- Drowning in public pools
- Electrocution from fallen power lines
- Child injuries on playground equipment that is faulty
- Injuries from falling tree branches in parks or on sidewalks
- Defective or missing handrails or guardrails
