PREMISES LIABILITY

Premises Liability: Slip and Falls and Injuries on Dangerous Property

Many people have general knowledge that the law requires property owners to prevent or repair unsafe conditions that pose a danger to others. However, when a serious injury or death occurs on someone’s property, disputes often arise over whether the property owner knew of the danger and whether the injured person was wholly or partly responsible.

Decades of Experience Proving Owner Responsibility for Property Defects

Every injury or fatality caused by a hazard on property — whether ice, a pothole, a broken stair or other defect — has many unique aspects. Led by a skilled personal injury lawyer who has recovered millions of dollars for clients in a career spanning more than 35 years, our firm is a proven resource for the injured and their families after events such as:

  • Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents resulting in severe, life-altering injuries
  • Injury-causing accidents on construction sites, including falls from heights, electrical injuries caused by a property owner’s negligence and more
  • Criminal attacks enabled by negligent security in known high-risk areas
  • Other traumatic, injury-causing events on dangerous property ranging from poorly maintained retail stores and apartment complexes to nursing homes

Our firm will conduct an in-depth investigation of your accident and an assessment of your damages. We have the trial experience and credibility to take your case the distance if needed.
