Premises Liability

A Catastrophic Injury Will Change Your Life Forever. Call Us.

Premises liability is an area of law that deals with injuries that arise on public and private property. Property owners and tenants have a duty to make sure that people who come onto their property are not injured by dangerous conditions or defects. When a person is injured due to the negligence of a landlord or tenant, then the injured person may file a premises liability lawsuit to recover compensation for medical expenses and other damages arising out of their injury.

Common grounds for premises liability lawsuits include:

  • Slip-and-falls
  • Vicious dogs
  • Inadequate security
  • Poorly lit or maintained stairwells
  • Toxic substances such as lead-based paint, mold and asbestos

We Will Never Be Bullied by Big Insurance Companies

There are many situations in which both a tenant and a landlord will be liable for injuries that occur on property. Examples include slip-and-falls that happen in a mall or at a friend’s apartment.
