The owner of a property has a legal duty to use reasonable care to keep the property safe from dangerous conditions. However, other persons, such as a tenant, the manager of a property, and contractors working on the premises may also be responsible for maintaining the premises in a safe condition and could be liable for injuries that occur on the property as well.
Premises liability generally refers to injuries that occur to victims as a result of unsafe conditions on another person’s property. Our law firm handles a full range of cases, including:
• Slip-and-fall cases
• Fire or explosions
• Lead paint exposure
• Carbon monoxide poisoning
• Swimming pool accidents
• Inadequate security
• Dog bites and other animal attacks
Negligent premises conditions can exist in just about every type of building or open space, including homes, apartment complexes, theaters, malls, sports facilities, amusement parks, government buildings, commercial buildings, farms, and other open land spaces.
As experienced attorneys, we initiate all of our cases with an immediate investigation, and:
• Conduct a site inspection
• Secure evidence
• Identify and contact witnesses
• Compile evidence of prior incidents and accidents
