Premises Liability: Holding Property Owners Accountable for Accidents

When you visit a property, whether it's a store, restaurant, or someone's home, you have the right to expect a reasonably safe environment. Unfortunately, accidents due to hazardous conditions or negligence of property owners can result in serious injuries.

Types of Premises Liability Cases

Premises liability accidents can occur in various settings and involve different hazardous conditions, including:

  • Slip and Falls: Accidents caused by wet or slippery floors, uneven surfaces, loose rugs or carpets, or lack of proper signage.
  • Trip and Falls: Accidents resulting from hazards such as uneven or broken walkways, cluttered aisles, or obstructed pathways.
  • Inadequate Security: Assaults, robberies, or other crimes due to inadequate security measures, such as poor lighting, broken locks, or lack of surveillance.
  • Elevator and Escalator Accidents: Malfunctioning or poorly maintained elevators or escalators causing injuries.
  • Swimming Pool Accidents: Drownings, near-drownings, or injuries in poorly maintained or unsupervised swimming pools.

Establishing Liability

To pursue a premises liability claim, it's crucial to establish that the property owner or occupier was negligent in maintaining a safe environment. We will diligently investigate your case, gather evidence, interview witnesses, and consult with experts if necessary to determine liability. Our goal is to build a strong case demonstrating the property owner's negligence and their failure to fulfill their duty of care to visitors.

Seeking Compensation for Damages

Premises liability accidents can result in various damages, including:

  • Medical Expenses: Reimbursement for medical bills, hospital stays, surgeries, rehabilitation, and medication costs.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for income lost due to the injury, as well as potential loss of future earning capacity.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for physical pain, emotional distress, mental anguish, and a diminished quality of life.
  • Disability and Rehabilitation: Compensation for long-term disabilities, ongoing medical care, and rehabilitation needs.
