Premises Liability

Premises liability accidents are among the leading causes of injury in the United States. Thousands of people die from them each year, with a substantially larger number of people seriously injured by them. If you have been injured on another person's property, you may be eligible to bring a claim for your injuries. Different types of claims can arise from premise liability incidents such as slip and fall or trip and fall accidents, faulty equipment on the property and even injuries arising from one person harming another. The business owner and/or property owner could be held liable for your injuries if they fail to have proper security or safety measures. Attorney Jeff Greenberg represents clients in a range of premises liability cases, such as:

Premises Liability
  • Falls on wet or slippery floors
  • Falls in supermarkets, malls, retail stores
  • Broken, missing or poorly constructed sidewalks, stairs, railings
  • Falls on cords, rugs, or debris
  • Animal attacks
  • Toxic or hazardous substances
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Inadequate security (robbery, rape, assault, battery)

Property owners and businesses have a duty to maintain their premises in a safe manner. If you slip and fall or are injured while shopping at a store or while on someone else’s property, you may have a claim against the property owner or business that is responsible for keeping its patrons free from hazards. These businesses include:

Premises Liability
  • Hotels;
  • Apartment complexes;
  • Department stores;
  • Malls and Shopping Centers
  • Chain stores and other retail establishments
  • Bars, nightclubs, supermarkets, and restaurants

These accidents can result in serious injuries such as broken bones, fractures, spinal cord injury, head trauma such as concussion and brain injury, damaged nerves, herniated or bulging discs, shoulder, neck and back injury and muscle and ligament damage. These types of injuries are often very painful with the victim experiencing a lifetime of discomfort and suffering. If you are injured in a premises liability accident, you should take proper steps to document the incident. Immediately report what happened to the store manager or other personnel. Ask for a written report of the accident on the spot. Seek medical treatment for your injuries. Many businesses and stores have claims administrators or insurance companies that will deny your claim and try to blame it on you without a decent investigation. You need an experienced and talented attorney who is well versed in the law and who understands the process and components of premises liability cases, including proper investigation and assessing the value of your claim.
