Dangerous Places and Products

Experienced premises liability and product liability lawyers in Salt Lake City, Utah

Product manufacturers and property owners have a legal duty to provide safe goods and premises. When the floors, sidewalks, stairs and other walkable surfaces of a given location are not adequately maintained or when the design, manufacturing, packaging or distribution of a product renders it dangerous to consumers, the persons or parties responsible can be held liable for any injuries that result.

These areas of personal injury law are known as premises liability and products liability. At Larsen, Larsen, Nash & Larsen, our lawyers are fully able to handle these types of injury cases. With our help, you can recover complete compensation for the medical costs of your injury, as well as for the other associated expenses, such as clothing or property damage, lost wages, and emotional pain and suffering.

Causes of Premises Liability Cases

Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents can occur when a property is dangerous. If the property owner and/or manager left a property unmaintained due to negligence and your injury was the result, you may have a valid case, and you should contact a premises liability lawyer in Salt Lake City who can review your options. Common causes of premises accidents include the following:

  • Liquid spills not promptly cleared up
  • Objects left on stairways or in walkways
  • Ice or snow left on sidewalks, driveways or on steps
  • Poor lighting
  • Failure to properly maintain an elevator or escalator
  • Failure to repair a structural defect or impediment
  • Failure to supply appropriate signage warning walkers of a dangerous floor or area

When you need help from a product liability attorney in Salt Lake City

If a defective product has caused you injury or if you were physically hurt because there was no instruction regarding its use or warning of its hazards, you should consult with an experienced Salt Lake City product liability lawyer who can help you determine where the defect occurred. Items may be deemed defective in any of the following ways:

  • Poor design – Products designed in a way that render them inherently dangerous, useless or ineffective, even when manufactured properly
  • Errors in manufacturing – Products that, while designed adequately, were not properly assembled or produced or were constructed using harmful materials (for example, toys painted with lead-containing paint)
  • Misleading distribution, or absence of instruction/warning – Products that, despite sound design and construction, were not sold with the proper directions to ensure safe operation or were sold without warnings of their inherent danger
