Premises Liability

A premises liability claim occurs when an owner/occupier of a business or real estate fails to protect and warn others of dangerous conditions and someone is injured as a result.  For instance, a store owner may be liable if they fail to salt their icy store entrance and a customer is injured after slipping and falling on the ice.  Likewise, if a supermarket fails to warn customers of a dangerous hole in its parking lot, you may be entitled to compensation if you are injured by falling into the hole.

Slip and fall cases are often met with skepticism because of a few unscrupulous individuals who have tried to collect money by exaggerating or even faking an injury.  However, skepticism does not negate the reality of suffering a genuine injury.  It can be very hard to get the responsible party to admit liability for your injury, let alone pay you for your damages.  We represent individuals who are genuinely harmed and genuinely need our help to get the compensation they deserve. 

A slip and fall often results in serious injuries including broken bones, torn ligaments, and scarring.  Treating these types of injuries is expensive and can add up to thousands of dollars in damages including:

  • Medical/dental bills
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of ability to work
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium (support of a loved one)
  • Funeral expenses

We know that fighting with insurance companies is the last thing you want to do after an injury. Let us handle that so you can concentrate on your physical recovery.
