Personal Injury and Slip-and-Fall in Merced
Because Merced is so busy and has so many attractions, it is also the location for accidents caused by others’ negligent or reckless acts. Merced has many different shopping and recreational areas meaning premises liability is a huge issue that arises often, particularly when it comes to slip and fall accidents.
Landowners and business owners are under a duty to maintain a premises in such a way that ensures individuals who come onto the land or visit the business will not be subjected to hazardous conditions or a risk of harm. If the land or business owner fails to meet this duty, he or she could be held responsible under the law. This includes having to monetarily compensate the injured individual(s) for their damages – physical, mental, and otherwise.
