Premises Liability

Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable

Property owners, managers, maintenance companies and even leasers have a responsibility to guests, patrons and occupants. They are responsible for maintaining a secure and safe premise. When safety practices are overlooked or neglected, otherwise innocuous premises can become extremely dangerous. An unguarded pool or dog, slippery surface or unexpected step down can become injurious or even deadly.

If you or someone close to you has suffered an injury due to a poorly maintained or unsecured premise, it is important to reach out to counsel who can inform you of your rights and to what you may be entitled for compensation.

An example of our success.

  • $300,000 – A 30-year-old plaintiff was severely injured when he was struck by a tree being felled by a neighbor. After taking a chainsaw next door to loan to the neighbor, the plaintiff was returning to his residence when the tree landed on him, causing several fractures to his right leg and a vertebral fracture to his back. The plaintiff needed reparative surgery, endured many months’ recuperation and had to change employment to more sedentary work.
