Premises Liability

Premises liability is one of the leading causes of personal injury in the nation. When a property owner fails to maintain the grounds of their property and keep the property secure, they place any visitors in danger of serious injury. The most common types of premises liability case are slip-and-fall accidents. Neglected spills, leaks, uneven pavement, loose wires and obstructed walkways can all cause an innocent person to lose his or her balance, fall and suffer serious injury. Our attorneys have also handled a broad range of cases involving defective or malfunctioning escalators and elevators. Common injuries include:

  • Head injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Back injuries
  • And spine injuries.


Individuals can also be injured in an animal attack or a violent crime because of a property owner's negligence. Dogs and other animals are the property of their owner, making the owner responsible for any injuries they may cause in an attack. Negligent security makes it easier for violent crimes such as assault, rape, and robbery to occur, which can cause serious injury and other damages for the victim.
