Accident in North Carolina park causes guest injuries

If you're doing business of any kind from buying groceries to purchasing a car, you want to feel safe on a business' premises. North Carolina law has adapted over time from the frontier spirit of "let the buyer beware" to a string of laws and statutes that protect the customers of businesses and visitors to others' properties.

There are a variety of ways that the owner or manager of a business or premises may be found negligent in causing a person's injury. A driver may be negligent if he or she texts while driving because that constitutes an unsafe environment near the car. In the same way, an owner is negligent if a failure to fix or be aware of a premises problem causes injury.

A zoological park north of Charlotte may face lawsuits for premises liability after a tree fell on a passenger vehicle transporting guests. In a "freak accident," according to the park operator, a tree fell between two cars in a tour convoy. Some observers think the accident could have been predicted and the operator is, therefore, liable for the six resultant injuries.

If the collapsed tree was on private property and showed signs of rot or stress that could have been observed by expected maintenance, then the owner of the property may face civil charges for medical expenses and compensation for pain and suffering.

Anyone injured on another's property while a guest or a client may consider an attorney to help form a civil case for premises liability. Legal representation can make the recovery from a stressful time easier and more successful.
