Dangerous Property Claims

Premises Liability

If you, or someone in your family, has been seriously injured in an accident caused by a property owner’s failure to maintain a building, a parking lot, a business or other premises in a reasonably safe condition, contact Warner Law Offices. Our attorneys combine a thorough understanding of premises liability law with the practical ability to prove disputed facts in order to give your claim its best possible chance of success.

All property owners owe persons who are not trespassers the duty of keeping their buildings and grounds reasonably safe for ordinary commercial or social use, depending on the nature of the property and its ownership.

For example, a retailer who operates a big-box store with a large parking lot, shipping and receiving facilities and a cafeteria might be held to more extensive responsibilities than a private homeowner liable only for what happens in a house and yard. Both property owners, however, will be responsible for ensuring that their premises are structurally sound, adequately lit and free of hidden hazards that can result in serious injury to the ordinarily cautious person.

Examples of the kinds of injuries that can result from dangerous property conditions for which the owner can be held liable upon proper proof are the following :

  • Slip-and-fall injuries on wet or oily surfaces
  • Collapse of porches, stairwells or balconies
  • Accidents in dark hallways or lobbies
  • On-the-job injuries suffered at remote work sites or in the field
  • Injuries caused by falling objects or overhead structures
  • Car accidents or pedestrian injuries in poorly designed or badly marked parking lots
  • Violent assaults due to inadequate security or negligent monitoring
  • Dog bite injuries

Many premises liability cases are resolved on the basis of what a reasonable property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition that caused the injury. At Warner Law Offices, our attorneys will make sure that you have a complete understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of your claim. Once we commit to your case, however, you can depend on us to present your claim in the clearest and most persuasive terms possible.

    I am very pleased with the work that Warner Law Offices did for me. I would recommend them to all my friends.
