Property Owners Have Responsibilities
Generally, the owner of a property is responsible for keeping the property reasonably safe for guests, or at least warning them of any dangers. When accidents occur on the property due to unsafe conditions, the injured person may bring a premises liability claim against them for damages. Although people often refer to these accidents as a slip-and-fall, they can include any type of accident, such as falling objects, dog bites or even inadequate security that leads to an attack.

With decades of legal experience and a strong commitment to providing personalized service, we will help you through every step of your personal injury matter from beginning to end, with the goal of obtaining a favorable settlement or verdict.

Who Is Responsible?
We represent clients in premises liability claims against companies and individuals. Many people do not want to bring a claim against an individual, especially a family member or friend. It is important to note that the insurance companies usually handle these cases, so you will not be taking compensation directly from the individual. Further, our lawyers will handle your case discreetly and professionally to help ensure that you can maintain the relationships that are important to you.
