Rockingham Premises Liability Lawyers
File Your Claim Today
In North Carolina, business owners and property owners are equally responsible for providing reasonably safe environments for residents, employees, and visitors. If there is a potential safety hazard on the premises, an owner is required to post sufficient and visible warnings until the problem is corrected. To guarantee public safety, these repairs need to be completed within a reasonable time.
Premises liability injuries often occur at:
- Office buildings
- Parking structures
- Shopping malls
If you’ve been injured due to the inactions of a negligent business or property owner, contact the premises liability attorneys at Price Petho & Associates P.L.L.C. We can help you file a claim to hold the negligent party responsible for your injuries.

Holding a Business Accountable
To successfully recover damages in a premises liability lawsuit, your attorney needs to prove that the business owner was aware, or should have been aware, of the hazard and failed to properly correct it.
Premises liability injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Electrical injuries
- Exposure to chemicals
- Injuries related to maintenance negligence
It’s not unusual for business and property owners to dispute premises liability claims by alleging that the victims are wholly, equally, or partly responsible for their injuries. This is because North Carolina is a contributory negligence state. If the court finds that you didn’t exercise reasonable care for your own wellbeing, you may not be awarded damages that can facilitate your financial and physical recovery.
The success of your lawsuit depends on the following conditions:
- You weren’t trespassing on private property
- You didn’t ignore obvious hazard warnings
- You didn’t act in an irresponsible way that could cause your injury
- You weren’t intoxicated during the incident in question
