Results in All Types of Premises Liability Cases

Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Owners of restaurants and grocery stores must take reasonable steps to prevent the accumulation of liquid on a floor that may cause the floor to be slippery. There is a duty to prevent the artificial accumulation of ice by putting salt or sand on the surface to lessen danger. Holes in sidewalks or raised cracks should be repaired or barricaded and marked with a warning sign. The same obligations apply to all building owners, including buildings that are owned by federal, state or local government.

When property owners fail to follow reasonable and often simple steps to keep walkways clear, the result is often a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident. We take on negligent property owners in these all-too-common cases.

Negligent Security

Property owners must also take reasonable steps to make sure proper security measures are implemented to reduce the risk of crimes such as robbery, rape and assault. Hotels, certain public buildings and correctional institutions have a duty to employ security staff, use security cameras and keep potentially dangerous areas well-lit in order to deter crime. When these businesses fail to follow the steps they should have, we will hold them accountable.
