Premises Liability

Issues such as unsafe surfaces, uneven steps and faulty construction can give rise to "premises liability" claims. The injuries you suffer from these incidents could cause a lifetime of pain, medical bills or worse. Premises liability injuries can occur almost anywhere:

  • Homes
  • Apartments and condominiums
  • Businesses
  • Restaurants and stores
  • Parking lots
  • Hotel lobbies and property

Do Not Assume It Is Your Fault

You may feel like an accident was just your own clumsiness, but that is often not true. Our investigators will collect evidence from your accident. We are very familiar with these cases and are more likely to identify premises liability problems than a casual observer.

When Poor Security Leads to Injury

It is all too common for owners of apartment complexes and hotels to ignore security problems. Lapses like broken security systems and disabled locks on gates or insufficient lighting can make it easy for criminals to prey on residents and visitors. A negligent security injury can be very serious — or fatal. Common injuries and incidents include:

  • Robbery
  • Physical assault
  • Sexual assault
  • Gunshot wounds
  • Homicide

Because of the emotional trauma involved, you may need psychological care, in addition to medical treatment, after one of these injuries.
