Accidents Caused by Inadequate Security Measures
Property owners are required to make reasonable efforts to ensure the safety of their guests. In some cases, this means implementing security measures, like guards, cameras, and other methods of enforcement, to make sure people are out of harm’s way. There are many instances where people are stabbed, assaulted, and even shot while at homes, restaurants, and clubs across the state.
When property owners fail to implement security measures to keep patrons safe, they can be held liable for any resulting injuries and damages that victims endure. Property owners can be considered negligent when they fail to implement safety measures as well as when they fail to make repairs to damaged or broken security components.
Injured at a Construction Site in Jackson
Construction crews are required to adequately secure the area to ensure people passing through the area are not injured. However, there are many cases where pedestrians are struck by scaffolding that falls on the sidewalk, construction gates collapse on top of people passing through the area, and even significant explosions occur that cause damage to surrounding structures. If you have been injured at or near a construction site, you may have legal options available to help you get justice.
Types of Injuries from Premises Liability Accidents
People who are harmed in premises liability accidents often suffer serious injuries that require immediate medical care. Depending on the severity of your injury, you may have to spend extensive time off work and undergo long-term treatment as well.
Some of the most common injuries suffered by victims of premises liability accidents in Jackson include:
Burn injuries: Burn injuries can be extremely painful and often require both immediate and long-term care. Depending on the severity of the burn, victims may have to go through multiple surgeries. Burns can also cause nerve and muscle damage and even the loss of limbs.
Respiratory injuries: Burn injuries, toxic fumes, and chemical exposure can lead to irreversible respiratory injuries. Victims may have problems breathing, suffer chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and various other injuries due to unsafe storage of chemicals, leaks, and other acts of negligence.
Nerve and muscle injuries: These injuries are common for victims who have been attacked by dogs, injured by defective machinery, and involved in various other types of accidents. Victims who suffer nerve and muscle injuries often require several surgeries and experience drastic limitations.
Internal organ damage: These injuries are incredibly painful and can be life-threatening. Without immediate care, victims who suffer internal organ damage can suffer irreversible consequences or even pass away.
Broken bones: Slip and fall accidents, being struck by falling objects, and various other premises liability accidents can lead to broken bones. Many victims experience breaks in the arms, legs, ankles, and wrists for a variety of reasons.
Traumatic brain injuries: Being struck by a falling object, shot, and assault are common causes of traumatic brain injuries. Traumatic brain injuries often require ongoing treatment and negatively impact the mental, physical, and emotional health of victims.
Spinal cord injuries:
Spinal cord injuries are considered catastrophic injuries
for victims. When victims suffer incomplete injuries, they are often required to go through surgery and lengthy treatment. Given the fact that incomplete injuries are not complete severs of the spinal cord, victims may gain the ability to walk, use their arms, and perform various tasks over time and with treatment. Complete spinal cord injuries often cause permanent paralysis. Spinal cord injuries can result in towering financial consequences both immediately and for several years to come.
Neck and soft tissue injuries: Slip and fall accidents are a common cause of soft tissue injuries, like whiplash. However, there are various other types of accidents that we see leave victims with serious neck and soft tissue injuries that drastically limit their range of motion and their ability to work and perform various tasks.
