Premises Liability

Premises liability cases involve accidents that occur due to negligent maintenance or unsafe and dangerous conditions upon property owned by someone other than the accident victim. These cases often involve a fall, and are therefore often referred to as "slip and fall" cases.

Slip and fall accidents occur every day. Whether the accident occurs on a stairway, in a supermarket, on a sidewalk, or in some other unsafe place, the injuries can be severe. Extensive medical treatment, days or weeks off from work, and physical impairment or disability are often the result.

If the accident occurs on someone else's property, there is a good chance that the owner or occupant of the property has insurance coverage that includes coverage for reimbursement of your medical expenses but does not address the complex damages such as lost wages, pain and suffering, impaired function, or disability. In order to recover for these damages, you may need to establish negligence. This means that you must prove what caused the accident and that someone was legally at fault.

That is where an attorney can help. Sometimes the proof of liability is easy to establish, but in most cases we find it requires a detailed examination of the facts and often the opinion of one or more qualified experts. In this case, for instance, there are a myriad of details to be taken care of. The scene of the accident should be investigated and photographed as soon as possible, to preserve any physical evidence ... witnesses should be interviewed ... compliance with building codes or industry standards must be checked ... insurance coverage verified …and the extent of injury, medical examinations and treatment the accident victim has received must be evaluated, just to name a few.
