Owners and managers of a property or establishment have a duty to care for anyone who is invited onto their property. They have a responsibility to provide a safe environment to all visitors and take reasonable measures to prevent harm. When they fail to protect their visitors and injury occurs, victims may be able to file premises liability claims on such grounds as:
- Slippery or oily floors
- Unmaintained sidewalks
- Faulty pool fencing, gates, drains or locks
- Falling objects
- Broken smoke detectors
- Security failures
- Uneven walking surfaces
- Inadequate lighting
Injuries suffered on another’s property whether in a home, on a sidewalk or in a commercial building or shop are often the result of negligent maintenance or even complete disregard for the safety of others. At the Law Offices of Bill T. Kuziara, we handle premises liability claims involving unsafe conditions, structural flaws, environmental dangers and a variety of other issues.
Slip and Fall
“Slip and fall” or “trip and fall” are terms used to describe injuries that occurred on someone else’s property as a result of a defect, slick build-up, or other dangerous condition. A private property owner may be sued for a fall-related injury, but most slip and fall accidents happen at business locations, such as grocery stores, gas stations and office buildings. Slip and fall claims may arise when property owners know about but fail to fix broken or dangerous stairs, spills or other defective conditions.
We have handled numerous cases on behalf of seriously injured fall victims due to premises liability in apartments, homes, retail stores and other private and public buildings.
If you or a family member has been seriously injured in a fall or other accident away from your home, you may have a claim. Feel free to contact us at (707) 546-1040 for assistance and legal advice.
