At MLG Injury, our personal injury attorneys in Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi know that the holiday season brings a substantial increase in parties throughout the southeast and the rest of the country.
Whether it is a private party hosted in someone’s home, a work party hosted on public property, or one or the other reserved in a rented event space, most of these celebrations start and end without incident — which is exactly how everyone should enjoy them.
Unfortunately, when negligence is a factor, attendees can get hurt without notice. When they do, they need to know their rights to pursue compensation for their damages.
Can I Pursue a Friend or Family Member for Injuries that Occurred on Their Property?
When negligence is a factor on someone’s property — especially someone you know, like a neighbor, friend, or family member — it can be an awkward situation to hold them accountable for your damages.
That is why we are here. Our experienced personal injury lawyers can take the lead in negotiating with your friend or loved one’s homeowner’s insurance company directly. This will remove both you and the property owner from the equation, so you can preserve your personal relationship while pursuing the financial compensation necessary to cover your complete damages.
Can I Pursue a Restaurant or Bar for Injuries that Occurred During a Christmas Party?
Property owners and operators owe all visitors a duty of care when they are on the premises. That means providing adequate security for a large event and keeping the property free from hazards that can cause them harm. That may include slip, trip, and fall hazards and/or display and other injury hazards. When they do not uphold their duty, and you or someone you love is hurt as a result, you deserve the opportunity to pursue their property insurance coverage for your full financial recovery.
