When property owners ignore their premises, a serious injury is always a danger.
Improper maintenance can turn an innocuous sidewalk or walkway, pool, supermarket aisle or parking lot into dangerous terrain. If you or someone close to you was injured because of someone's negligent care of commercial or residential property (either public or private) you may be entitled to significant compensation.
Premises liability cases can pose unique issues that other areas of personal injury do not have.
Liability may not reside solely with an owner, but with the management company, maintenance company or leaser. When a case involves multiple defendants, as may be the case in complex premises liability cases, it is crucial to work with expert counsel, should you choose to pursue litigation.
