Premises Liability & Hunting Accidents

Representing the Injured in Eastern Tennessee

If you have been injured due to the negligence of another person, you have a right to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability, and other damages you suffer as a result. Examples of negligence include hunting accidents and injuries that occur due to the unsafe property conditions.

Our lawyers represent people in the Knoxville metropolitan area and eastern Tennessee who are injured in premises liability accidents, gunshot accidents, construction accidents and other types of accidents caused by negligence.

Premises Liability Accidents

Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises and correct dangerous conditions so that guests are not injured. Examples of accidents caused by dangerous property conditions include:

  • Slipping and falling due to a spilled product in a grocery store or restaurant
  • Tripping and falling on uneven or cracked pavement
  • Falling on a stairway due to missing handrails or uneven steps
  • Injuries caused by collapsed structures like porches or decks

In Tennessee, your recovery from a personal injury claim can be reduced if you were partially to blame for the accident. You could be held partially responsible if you failed to avoid an obvious hazard or were not watching where you were walking. To protect your rights to full compensation in a premises liability case, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible to collect and preserve evidence of property owner negligence.

Hunting Accidents

When hunters fire their guns without seeing what they are shooting at, innocent people can be injured or killed. Jack W. Piper Jr. obtained a $960,000 recovery for a client who was shot by one of his two companions while turkey hunting in East Tennessee.

You may also be entitled to compensation if you are injured by the accidental discharge of a gun by a fellow hunter, being shot after being mistaken for an animal, suffering injury from a defective duck blind or by falling from an unsafe tree stand.
