When someone is injured on another person’s property, the personal injury claim falls under an area of law called premises liability. There are several types of claims that premises liability encompasses, including negligent property maintenance and slip-and-fall accidents — often these two go hand-in-hand.

Injured On A Private, Commercial Or Public Property?

Our attorneys handle injury claims involving several types of property. Each type of property will have a different type of entity responsible for maintenance. For example, a homeowner is responsible for the maintenance of his or her home. Responsibility for a commercial property may fall under the scope of a property management company or landlord. Public property may be managed by a municipal maintenance crew. We understand the various types of properties and can readily trace the lines of ownership, management and responsibility to uncover who or what is responsible for the inadequate maintenance and the resulting serious injuries.

We handle cases involving:

  • Bad lighting
  • Broken stairs
  • Loose carpeting and flooring
  • Broken plumbing that results in water and slippery walking surfaces
  • Dirty filters in driers that can cause fires
  • Unshoveled and icy sidewalks, steps, walkways and driveways
  • Uneven and broken sidewalks, steps, walkways and driveways


When property owners, managers and others overlook safety standards, people can become seriously injured, or their injuries may result in death. Our lawyers are committed to holding negligent property owners accountable for the injuries and deaths that they cause. We passionately pursue maximum compensation for your losses and protect your rights at every stage in the process.
