Premises Liability cases are those in which our clients were seriously injured or killed because of an unreasonably dangerous condition on land. Often these are referred to as slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall cases, but they also include injuries related to playgrounds, swimming pools, negligent security, sports fields, municipal sidewalks, and other property, public and private
Every landowner is responsible for keeping their property reasonably safe for its visitors. We work closely with land experts to pursue these cases against land owners who knew or should have known about dangerous conditions on their property, but failed to act reasonably in fixing the condition or warning visitors about them.
The facts of each case are different. That means that a past record of success in another case is not a guarantee of a similar result in your case or in any future case. However, we have listed a small number of recent settlements or court verdicts to represent the types of success we have had in the past in complex liability cases. Call us today to find out whether you have a case.
