Property owners have a duty to maintain safe premises for residents, visitors and guests. When unsafe conditions, negligent maintenance or inadequate security results in injury or death, you may hold the property owner liable for your losses.
All premises liability cases are complex because proving that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition can be challenging.

Unsafe Property Can Cause Serious Injuries
Accidents caused by dangerous premises can occur on private and public property, including homes, apartments, hotels, shopping malls, gas stations, grocery stores and big-box retail stores. We will investigate the cause of your accident to determine liability.
Failure to maintain property in good condition can result in dangerous conditions such as:
- Cracked sidewalks or pavement
- Broken or uneven flooring
- Broken elevators and escalators
- Unsafe stairs and stairwells
- Falling objects
- Risk of electric shock
- Fire hazards
- Building code violations
- Open hazards
Negligent security issues such as inadequate lighting, broken locks and lack of security cameras can foster conditions that make the premises unsafe. If you have been the victim of an assault, robbery or other crime because of negligent security, we may be able to hold the property owner accountable for allowing the property to become unsafe.
Property owners also have a responsibility to warn of known or potential dangers. Failure to warn can cause catastrophic injuries and deaths, including Traumatic Brain Injuries, spinal cord damage, amputations, burn injuries, electrocution, drowning and suffocation.
