Millions of people are injured each year in slip-and-fall or other premises accidents. Since property owners are responsible for maintaining their premises safely and warning visitors of potential hazards, they can be held liable for injuries that occur due to unsafe conditions on their property.
Property owners and landlords also have a duty to take precautions to protect tenants and others from harm, including assault and are obligated to provide security measures under many circumstances.
Some examples of premises liability claims we can help you with are:
- Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall injuries
- Construction Accidents
- Lead Paint Exposure
- Negligent Security
- Scaffolding Accidents
- Ceiling Collapse
- Broken Stairs
Fall down and premises accidents can result in many types of injuries, ranging from the relatively minor to the extremely severe. Please contact us immediately regardless of your injury.

(for example, ice, snow, or rain)
- Uneven sidewalks / cracked sidewalks
- Poorly lit or unmarked pathways or stairs
- Slippery tiling
- Unbalanced flooring
- Rippled carpet
- Obstructions on the floor or walkway
