Building owners and managers are responsible for maintaining safe premises. There are times when a dangerous situation may exist briefly (such as a leak that causes a slippery surface), but the condition should be cleared up in a reasonable period of time.

Tell us about your premises liability accident.

First, get the medical care you need. If you can, get photos of the accident scene and your injuries. The more we know, the better our premises liability lawyers can advise you.

What caused the premises liability accident?

  • In an apartment building: Stairs should be built and repaired to proper specifications. Balcony and stair railings should be kept in good repair. Broken locks should be repaired as quickly as possible.
  • In a retail store: Merchandise and boxes should be safely stacked. Hazards should be kept out to aisles. Leaks and spills should be cleaned as soon as the manager is aware of the problem. Slippery floors are a major cause of slip, trip and fall accidents.
  • In a parking lot for stores, restaurants, bars: The parking lot should have sufficient lighting. If the area has a history of police reports, the proprietors should take appropriate security measures.
  • In an office building: Dark stairs, exposed wiring, lax security and broken locks can create a dangerous environment.
