Nashville, Tennessee Premises Liability Attorneys

Making Tennessee a safer place, one case at a time

Property owners in Tennessee have the duty to maintain their properties and keep the public safe from harm. If they fail to do so, they may be liable for any injury that occurs on their land.

The Rocky McElhaney Law Firm in Nashville takes pride in holding property owners accountable for their actions, and can help you recover the financial compensation you need to heal from your injuries. Our firm views each premises liability case as a way to improve public safety. We aggressively advocate on your behalf to make sure that this never happens to you or to anyone else ever again.

Protect yourself from negligent property owners

Rocky McElhaney and his team of attorneys represent clients throughout Tennessee in premises liability cases involving:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Assaults, rape and robbery due to negligent security
  • Retail store and mall injuries
  • Hotel injuries
  • Amusement park injuries
  • School and day care injuries
  • Improper maintenance of sidewalks and stairs
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Animal attacks
  • Injuries due to mold and chemicals

Property owners are responsible for any hazards that may be present on their premises. This includes apparent hazards, like a guard dog or uneven pavement, as well as hidden hazards, like shards of glass or asbestos. Moreover, if a dangerous condition exists on their properties that they should have known about, they can be held accountable for any injury that occurs. This includes temporary hazards as well, like a wet floor or a snow-covered sidewalk.

Premises liability cases also arise from the failure to provide proper security measures. If a property owner’s negligence results in a third-party attack on a visitor, they can be held responsible. This commonly occurs in apartment buildings, where broken doors and windows may allow criminals to gain access.
