Whenever you are on another's property, whether it is personally owned or business-owned, there is an expectation that you will be safe while there. The owner of any property has a responsibility to maintain that property and take steps to keep it safe and secure.

Types of Premises Liability Cases
Premises liability cases involves the expectation that the owner of any property has maintained it properly so no one will get injured while on the grounds. However, properties often have hazards that can include the following:
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Unsafe stairs
- A spill or wet area that wasn't properly cleaned or marked
- Lack of handrails
- Poor lighting
- Lack of security that leads to an assault
- Lack of maintenance on the property, including snow removal, ice removal, debris removal, and landscape care
- Lack of safety precautions of a swimming pool
- Lack of safety and warning signage
If you fall because a property doesn't have properly designed stairs or doesn't have a handrail, which are code requirements, the property owner can be found negligent. Also, if you suffer because the proper signage isn't visible about a spill, wet floor, or even about the hazards of a swimming pool, our attorneys can help you prove negligence against the property owner. Furthermore, a property owner has a responsibility to effectively secure and monitor their property so, if an assault occurs because the area wasn't properly secured, we can seek damages in a premises liability case as well.
