Every private area that you attend is guaranteeing your safety upon entry. In fact, unless you sign a notice that they aren’t responsible for you on the premises, then they may be held liable if something were to happen to you. This pertains to slips and falls, accidents of any kind and unfortunately, things that are allowed to happen due to a lack of security. Whether you are visiting a friend at an apartment complex, attending a concert, filling your car with fuel or attempting a withdrawal at an ATM machine, you have the right to expect to be safe. The owners of these facilities have an obligation to ensure that people who are visiting are kept safe.
Hold the Property Owner’s Accountable
All types of accidents happen when there aren’t safety precautions set up. For example, high crime rate areas may be prone to having robberies or assaults on the property. These must be dealt with by increasing security measures. Could you imagine yourself being robbed right after using a bank’s ATM and it was due to their front door having a broken security system? Due to these inadequate security measures that the property owner had in place, you are now at a very large loss. Everyone has an expectation of safety at any location. You are entitled to that expectation and if you have been hurt or worse at the cause of inadequate security, you are entitled to compensation.

One of the most difficult cases to deal with in a court of law is the Wrongful Death case.

What is the Compensation for in a Wrongful Death Claim?
You have a lot of compensation to be given. You lost someone who supported you, possibly your family and your children and was there to comfort you for life. Now they’re gone. Here is just a sample of what a Wrongful Death claim may encompass.
Financial Support – When you have lost current and future financial support as a spouse or child, we will do everything possible to get the maximum amount of compensation.
Medical Expenses – Just because they are gone, doesn’t mean the medical expenses that were accrued while trying to keep them alive are payed. They owe you these payments.
Pain & Suffering – The pain and suffering of both the victim and family members is often taken into consideration when making this determination.
Spouse & Children Damages – The spouse and children not only lost financial support, but the companionship that they would have had throughout their entire life. No money can substitute this, but restitution must be paid.

What to do After the Accident?
So, the accident just occurred, you’re processing the situation and the damage and attempting to decide what is the best move. First and foremost, seek medical attention. Make sure that there are medical professionals on their way before making any other moves.
If everyone is in a state that doesn’t require immediate medical attention, then it is important to begin gathering information immediately. Assess whether there were witnesses or not and make sure to receive their information quickly to receive a statement from them. If possible, take pictures of anything that would pertain to the accident. Pictures are the most accurate way to discern damages to the vehicles, the makes, models and license plates of the vehicles and much more. Finally, you’re going to want to wait until the police arrive so that the accident and your story is documented.
The Final Task
Your final task after an accident is to contact an attorney. It is important not to give the other participant of the accident any apologies or any signification that you are admitting fault. Your attorney will guide you through the remainder of the process.
These accidents can get extremely deadly and should be dealt with accordingly. Make sure to retrieve an attorney that knows the ins-and-outs of personal injury law. The Schrier Law Group is a team of personal injury attorneys that will aggressively represent you in a court of law. Contact us today!

- Pain and suffering— The pain and suffering of both the victim and family members is often taken into consideration when making this determination.
- Spouse’s damages— We will fight to recover compensation for loss of companionship and protection as well as pain and suffering from the date of the accident that ultimately resulted in the death of your partner.
- Children’s damages— When there are minor children of a decedent who died as a result of a deliberate act, we will seek damages for lost parental companionship, guidance and instruction as well as mental pain and suffering.
