Premises Liability

Home and business owners owe an obligation to the community to keep their premises safe.  When they fail to do so resulting in injury, the property owner can and should be held responsible.


When you visit a business or another’s home, slip and fall accidents may occur due to ice, snow, liquid spills, defective stairways, loose or missing handrails, exposed electrical cords, broken pavement, and uneven surfaces.   Such falls may result in serious injuries such as broken bones, dislocated joints, traumatic brain injuries, and even spinal cord injuries.  When involved in a fall, you may be left unable to work or in need of long term hospital care and rehabilitation.  Property owners also must provide adequate security on their property.  You may have an actionable claim against a property owner if you are raped or assaulted on a property with inadequate security such as poor lighting and security technology.
