Premises Liability

Premises Liability Lawsuit

A property owner must keep their premises safe for visitors. This duty includes everything from maintaining the walkways safe to preventing violent acts. Suppose you were injured because of the negligence of a homeowner or business owner. In that case, they are obligated to pay for all your injury costs. 

But you might be reluctant to ask for help. You might be embarrassed you got hurt or blame yourself for what happened to you out of a sense of personal responsibility. However, it might not have been your fault. 

Some property owners need to learn how to take care of their property. Some already knew there was a risk on their property, but they were full of excuses for why they did not do what they were supposed to do. Either way, their failure left you with a burden you did not ask for, and they need to help.

Although there are countless ways you could get hurt on someone’s property, here’s a list of common possibilities:

  •     An accident in an elevator, escalator, parking lot, or stairway
  •     Animal Attack
  •     Criminal attack 
  •     Defective construction or facilities
  •     Failure to warn of a harmful condition
  •     Fire/Flood
  •     Inadequate building security 
  •     Slip and fall 
  •     Hazardous substances
  •     Swimming pool accident
  •     Toxic fumes 

Besides your pain, you are likely dealing with a loss of income, medical bills, and psychological trauma. To get compensation for your damages, we will show how the property owner or manager failed to maintain a safe place for visitors and what they need to do to make it right. 

It’s not a burden you should shoulder yourself and holding them accountable helps prevent it from happening again to someone else. 

Let’s talk.

After listening to you talk about your experience, we will address your concerns and explain the legal process. Then we will collect evidence proving the property owner had a duty to care for your safety, and they neglected their duty.

Do not let a property owner or insurance company take advantage of you. Let our skilled litigators and negotiators defend your rights.
