Premises Liability Cases We Handle

Slips happen when there isn’t enough friction or traction between your feet and the surface you’re walking on. Causes of slips include wet or oily floors, spills, loose or unanchored mats, and flooring that lacks the same degree of traction in all areas.

Trips happen when your foot strikes an object, causing you to lose your balance. People trip due to a variety of reasons, including clutter in walkways, poor lighting, uncovered cables, drawers being left open and wrinkled carpeting or rugs.

Uneven Pavement Conditions

Uneven walkways cause injuries to pedestrians. You can potentially recover damages for your uneven pavement accident injuries, such as the costs of your medical treatment, including any future medical expenses. Other recoverable damages include pain and suffering, lost income and loss of earning capacity.

Ice and Snow Conditions

Bad weather, such as ice, snow and wet leaves can make surfaces that are otherwise safe, slippery. Property owners, tenants and caretakers are expected to clear and treat streets, sidewalks and parking lots for the safety of everyone on the property.

Elevator Malfunctions

When an elevator malfunctions it can cause serious injuries to the passengers. Common malfunctions include sudden stops, misleveling, power failures and poorly maintained machinery. An elevator is a complex machine that requires regular maintenance to ensure it is functioning properly. People are at a higher risk of injury if elevators are not properly inspected and maintained by the property owners and maintenance companies.

Negligent Security

Negligent security cases generally involve an injury to an individual as a result of a criminal assault or robbery at a commercial property.  These types of scenarios can happen at shopping malls, hotels, office buildings, and parking garages.  These are places that are in a position to control or prevent the incident where the plaintiff was injured from taking place.
