They pride themselves on their dedication to our clients and their aggressive representation both in and out of court on every claim.

What Is A Premises Liability Claim?

Property owners or occupiers have a legal responsibility to maintain a reasonably safe environment for visitors, guests, customers and tenants. When they fail to fulfill this duty and someone gets injured as a result, the injured party may file a premises liability claim seeking compensation for their injuries and related losses.

Common causes of premises liability lawsuits include:

  • Slip-and-falls related to wet or uneven floors
  • Parking lot falls due to potholes, ice or uncleared snow
  • Falls inside restaurants or stores due to obstructed walkways
  • Inadequate security in hotels or parking garages, which leads to assaults
  • Defective elevators, handrails on stairs and malfunctioning escalators
  • Dog bites and other animal attacks
  • Unsecured swimming pools and construction sites
  • Falling merchandise and poorly maintained retail establishments
  • Injuries related to ceiling collapse, defective electrical systems and poor lighting

If you think that you may have a premises liability claim, let a lawyer hear your story. You do not want to try to navigate the claims process on your own. Insurance company adjusters are experts at finding ways to deny valid claims.
