Hold Property Owners Accountable After An Injury
A property owner has a legal obligation to maintain his or her property, keeping it free from dangerous or hazardous conditions. This obligation extends to owners of residential or commercial property alike. When an owner fails to protect guests or customers from dangers, and an injury results, he or she (or the business organization) may end up the subject of a premises liability claim.

Proving Negligence In Premises Liability Cases
Collecting compensation for a premises liability claim is not as simple as saying you slipped on another individual’s broken sidewalk. Even if you clearly have a legitimate claim with severe medical and financial consequences, the court must be provided substantial evidence of negligence and its connection to your injuries.
Our attorneys are well-equipped to thoroughly investigate your case and gather the pertinent documents that substantiate your claim. We will gather evidence of the hazardous property as well as evidence that shows the property owner was aware of the hazards and did not take reasonable action to correct it. Beyond this, we will help you get independent medical assessments that uncover the full scope of your injuries, from initial medical treatments to ongoing therapy or rehabilitative care that may be required.
