Patrons who slip and fall due to business negligence have rights

Sometimes, business owners in Kentucky and elsewhere fail to take proper care of their properties. As a result, their patrons may unexpectedly slip and fall, which can lead to serious physical injuries. Here are some tips for protecting oneself from a financial and legal standpoint in the event of a slip-and-fall accident.

For starters, as soon as the accident happens, the injury victim may want to make a report of this accident as soon as possible. In the event that the victim chooses to seek compensation for his or her injuries in civil court, an accident report may help to establish his or her claim's legitimacy. A report is especially invaluable if no witness was present at the time of the accident.

The hospital has an obligation to provide translation services

Getting hurt when you live in America but don't speak English well can be incredibly stressful. There is a lot of misinformation floating around out there about the rights of immigrants, whether they are formal, documented immigrants, naturalized citizens or undocumented immigrants.

If you work for an American company, you should receive workers' compensation if you get hurt on the job regardless of your immigration status. If you are currently going through the immigration process, any claims that arise from injuries at work should not give your employer grounds to terminate you or the government the right to take action against you.

Target blamed for causing woman to slip and fall

A married couple in a different state recently claimed that the store Target caused the wife to suffer injuries due to its carelessness. For this reason, they have decided to file a premises liability lawsuit against the corporation, seeking damages. In the same way, if a company's negligence causes an individual in Kentucky to slip and fall, he or she has the right to seek to hold that business accountable in civil court.

In the recent out-of-state case, the married couple claimed that the wife was walking along an aisle at a Target back in February 2018. While searching for supplies for baking, she reportedly stepped into cooking oil in the aisle. According to the couple's lawsuit, the woman then fell on the spray oil.

A dad and his son have sadly lost their lives in a motor vehicle collision in Kentucky. The tragic accident happened on Kentucky Highway 290. Sometimes, these kinds of motor vehicle accidents are the result of a motorist's carelessness, which is grounds for litigation.

The recent accident took place at a little past 7 p.m. on a Friday. According to police, a man, 19, was driving along the highway in a truck with a trailer.

Numerous motor vehicle accidents on I-75 involve trucks and rain

During rainy weather, it is not uncommon for accidents involving tractor-trailers to occur along Interstate 75 in Kentucky. In fact, since Oct. 2018, police have reported about a dozen of these big rigs crashing in rainy weather along a curve beneath an overpass in the Dixie Highway area. According to authorities, these motor vehicle accidents appear to happen after rain has been falling for a long while.

Man claims that fun center caused him to slip and fall

A man in another state recently claimed that an entertainment center's staff and owners caused him physical harm due to their carelessness. Specifically, he asserted that the center caused him to slip and fall and suffer injuries. He has thus filed a lawsuit against the center, seeking damages.

He was reportedly attempting to go up an obstacle at the center. However, all of a sudden, he came across some beads on the floor. He asserted that the beads caused him to lose his balance and slip and fall.

Why hire a lawyer to handle your Kentucky immigration case?
