Property owners, including businesses and private residences, have a duty to maintain their property in a way that minimizes the likelihood that others will get hurt. If you get hurt on someone else’s property, you may have what lawyers call a “premises liability” claim against the property owner.
A slip-and-fall claim is one of the most common premises liability claims. As its name suggests, a slip-and-fall claim results when an individual was hurt after they slipped, tripped, or fell on someone else’s property because of someone else’s negligence.
Premises liability claims can be tricky, but we take them on all the time. We have successfully resolved premises liability claims, including claims against Wal-Mart and other large retailers, bars and pubs, gas stations, apartment complexes, and private residences. We even once resolved a claim brought by a father who fell through his son’s roof while trying to make repairs.
