Unsafe Premises

The success or failure of premises liability claims rests on good investigative work and attention to detail.

A premises liability claim occurs when you are injured on the property of another. Although there are many types of premises liability injuries, people consider “slip-and-fall” and “trip-and-fall” injuries to be the most commonly occurring.

“Slip-and-fall” injuries are those that occur when, not surprisingly, people slip on an dangerous, low friction substance like water, oil, grease, soap, or ice.

“Trip-and-fall” injuries are those that occur when people trip over unsafe and uneven surfaces.   One of the most preventable and sad type of trip-and-fall situations occurs when someone steps in a hole that is covered by leaves, a rug, a cardboard sheet, or dry rot.

The success or failure of premises liability claims rests on good investigative work and attention to detail. We know that triumph comes with the discovery and analysis of incident reports, safety manuals & reports, witness testimony, videotapes, weather conditions, policy manuals, building & construction codes, warnings, and disclaimers. We know that working with private investigators can make all the difference.

In premises liability cases, the law gives some injured folks greater protection than others.  For instance, the law (understandably) offers very few protections to those who injure themselves while knowingly trespassing on another’s private property.  On the other hand, there are companies that eagerly invite individuals into their stores and businesses.  The law offers more protections to those who are injured, through no fault of their own, while on such property.
