Helping You Recieve What You Deserve
Injuries can occur anywhere — on public property, at the grocery store, or on someone else’s property. Often, these injuries could have been prevented if the owner of the property had taken proper care of the premises.
For example, store owners have a responsibility to keep their walks shoveled in the winter and their floors free of slippery spots all year round. If you were not adequately warned of such dangerous spots and tripped and fell as a result, you could sue for damages.

When You Should Call Your Attorney
It is the responsibility of a property owner to make sure that their property is well-maintained in order to prevent injury to guests or patrons. This can mean hiring a property management company or groundskeeper to maintain walkways, stairways and driveways for the outdoors. There will also need to be maintenance indoors, in the case of apartment properties. They are responsible for harm to their tenants by eliminating structural defects, drowning hazards and environmental hazards like mold, lead or carbon monoxides.
