Premises liability claims can arise from cases involving accidents or criminal attacks. Premises liability cases include the liability of restaurants and bars for serving liquor or landlords and business owners who maintain dangerous conditions on their property. Cases often arise from assaults and robberies at retail stores, restaurants, schools, and apartment complexes. In cases involving criminal attacks, owners can be held liable in some cases for failing to provide adequate security.
Our lawyers can help families perform the necessary investigation as soon as possible in order to identify key witnesses and preserve important evidence in premises liability cases. They can then initiate lawsuits against any defendants that they determine may be liable for wrongful death under state and federal law.

The term slip and fall refers to the area of premise liability law where an individual is injured due to various types of material condition deficiencies or hazards in a home, at business, or other property. Injuries may vary in type and levels of severity; and depending upon the injuries sustained the types of medical treatment, physical therapy, rehabilitation periods may differ as well.
Property owners, business establishments, and homeowners have a lawful duty to provide a safe environment for individuals who visit their premises or property.
If you are injured because a property owner fails to provide a safe environment, you may have a right to bring a claim for various damages incurred due to your injuries.
Slip and fall injuries may vary from a sprained ankle to broken bones, brain, and spinal cord injuries, paralysis, or even death. The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control estimates that approximately 8 million people are injured in a slip and fall accident or incident each year in the United States.
The cause or main contributing factor of a slip and fall accident may involve any dangerous physical, material, or environmental condition which poses a threat to cause injury or harm. Some of these conditions include, but are not limited to:
• Wet surfaces;
• Failure to properly remove snow;
• Falling objects;
• Broken or severely cracked sidewalks, floor surfaces, or parking lots;
• Broken rails;
• Stairs which are deteriorated or out of code;
• Poor landscaping;
• Poor lighting;
• Broken or malfunctioning doors or windows;
• A malfunctioning elevator or escalator;
•Improper signs, visual displays, or other types of conditions that may cause or contribute to a potential personal hazard.
When an individual is injured in a slip and fall, they must often endure medical treatment and physical therapy, which in some cases may last for months, years, or even the rest of their life. These medical bills can be very daunting, and leave you pondering the uncertainty of how you will manage. Adding to this uncertainty, most slip and fall victims also find themselves losing essential wages due to missed time from work while recovering.
The financial implication resulting from time missed from work, as well as reduced transportation capabilities, may also be a burden that may seem insurmountable and make someone ponder how to pay for living expenses, medical bills, and support a family in such a difficult time.
When involved in a serious accident, the victim may be subjected to physical or mental disabilities, paralysis, loss of limb, endure long-term or permanent loss of quality of life, or even death.
