Pursuing Compensation For Premises Liability Claims

Property owners have an obligation to ensure their premises are safe for visitors, renters and patrons. When they fail to exercise proper care, severe injuries can result. At Atwood Law, we help people throughout Nebraska who have been injured on dangerous property.

Our lawyers have helped injured individuals pursue premises liability claims for accidents involving:

  • Falls from balconies, stairways, roofs and other high places
  • Slip-and-fall injuries occurring in nursing homes, shopping centers, office buildings, schools and government buildings
  • Shooting accidents and assaults in homes, schools and public parks
  • Escalator and elevator accidents
  • Dog bites and other animal attacks
  • Robbery and assault, including sexual assault, caused by insufficient security
  • Injuries caused by fire, flood or another natural disaster

Were you injured due to another party’s negligence? Call our Omaha or Lincoln offices at 402-817-2717 or 800-655-9606 to schedule a free case consultation and discuss your rights with our skilled trial attorneys. We also represent families who lost a loved one due to neglect or abuse.

What If The Property Owner Is A Friend Or Relative?

Many people hesitate to file a claim after an injury on a friend’s or loved one’s property. It is normal to have doubts about “suing” someone you know and care about. However, the losses and expenses associated with these injuries are still significant, and you may need help paying medical bills or compensating for lost work.

It is important to realize that homeowners and businesses carry insurance for exactly these situations. In most cases, you are not seeking compensation from the property owner but from his or her insurer. We encourage you to contact us to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney about any additional concerns you may have.

I cannot thank you enough for the peace of mind you have brought to my family! Both of my parents are extremely grateful for your work. I knew we were in good hands from the first meeting and you have exceeded all my expectations! It may feel straightforward to you, but to us, you have moved mountains. This settlement will allow my parents, particularly my Dad, to enjoy the rest of their lives to the fullest of their abilities. We all agree that we would give every cent back and more for my Dad to walk again, but that is not going to happen...

"...He didn't treat me like I was one of 100 clients. He treated me like I was his only client. He acted professionally but with empathy, dignity and friendliness. It didn't matter if it was something small or large, he was always there for me, be it by phone, fax, email, cellphone or meeting me personally at his office or elsewhere. He never rushed me when I didn't understand something, he'd take as much time as needed to explain things to me, especially when it came time for my deposition and in preparation for trial. He was there for me when I truly needed his help..."

"...My husband and I felt his kindness immediately and were both very impressed with his knowledge of what to expect in a wrongful death case. He pursued our claim in an aggressive manner while at the same time being very protective of our rights and privacy and sheltered us from any unnecessary contact with insurance agents, or any other adverse parties. My husband and I cannot say enough about the kindness, professionalism and legal ability demonstrated by Atwood Law"

- RD

"...If it were not for this law firm all I would have received from this injury would have been a loss of income check and a pat on the back, goodbye. Which only would have been a fraction of what I actually received. He was always professional but more importantly he cared about me and my family as people not just a client. He went beyond his role as my lawyer. He even spoke with my bank and explained why I was behind on my car payment. And this saved me getting my car repossessed..."
