According to the non-fatal injury data provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, motor vehicle accidents resulted in about 2.5 million emergency room visits in 2017. However, unintentional falls (about 8.6 million) and unintentional impacts (about 3.7 million) produced far more emergency room visits than motor vehicle accidents.

Regardless of how your injury occurred, the experienced team of attorneys at Davis & Ferber will zealously advocate for your right to receive the compensation that you deserve for your injury.
Premises Liability Claims
For example, premises liability is a legal theory designed to protect individuals from injuries they have sustained while on another person’s commercial or residential property. Because individuals who are invited onto another’s property as a guest do not know what hazards might exist, and cannot avoid or remedy those unknown hazards, the person or entity in control of the property at the time an injury occurs may be held responsible. Owners of property must take reasonable steps to inspect the premises for hazardous conditions and remedy those hazards, or at an absolute minimum, take the steps necessary to adequately warn guests of any hazardous conditions that exist on the premises.
Although premises liability is commonly used as a basis to seek compensation for a slip-and-fall injury that occurred on the premises of a commercial building such as a local grocery store or coffee shop, this legal theory can support other situations in which a person is injured on someone else’s property. For example, if somebody sustains a serious injury caused by a broken railing in the stairwell of an apartment building, this legal theory could form the basis of a personal injury action.
Intentional Tort Claims
Intentional torts, such as assault, battery or intentional infliction of emotional distress, are another common cause of personal injuries. These types of injuries may have been the result of a workplace conflict, a domestic altercation or random act of violence, and they can have devastating effects on you and your family. At Davis & Ferber, we will help you determine the most effective legal course of action to take in these types of situations.
